* Despite Music/{{Burzum}} being one of the most famous and important bands in all of BlackMetal, its sole member Varg Vikernes will always be known as "that guy who killed the {{Mayhem}} guitarist and burned down three churches."
** On a related note, fellow Norwegian BlackMetal band Music/{{Mayhem}} will probably be forever remembered as "that band where the singer blew his brains out and the bassist [Varg Vikernes from above] murdered the guitarist[=/=][[IAmTheBand bandleader]]."

* Music/{{Soulfly}} is one of the most respected bands to emerge from the NuMetal scene (thanks to [[Music/{{Sepultura}} Max]] [[IAmTheBand Cavalera]]), but he'll never be able to live down the fact that he made a song called "Jumpdafuckup", the name of which was promptly used to mock nu metal bands similar to his.

* Rap music promoter, Birdman, best known for discovering LilWayne is now a victim of this trope. He went on a popular radio show called the Breakfast Club with a hostile attitude, demanding the three radio host "respect his name". He accused them of making fun of him in the past and he didn't appreciate it. Instead, he made a fool of himself, and now the whole country (if not the world) is making fun of him on the internet. He has become a victim of MemeticMutation, as people often make post with the word "Respeck" as a way to make fun of how he talks. And it seems to get worse everyday.

* The fives years Morrissey spent in TheSmiths will ALWAYS take precedence over his 20 year+ solo career.

* Steve Harwell, the lead singer of Music/SmashMouth, will never live down the bread incident at the Taste of Fort Collins festival in 2015. When the audience started throwing bread at the stage, Harwell [[ClusterFBomb cussed the crowd out]] as the rest of the band played their SignatureSong "All Star".

* The NuMetal genre as a whole. It doesn't matter how much they tweak their style or whether they [[NewSoundAlbum overhaul it entirely]], nu-metal bands will forever be known for having once played [[DeaderThanDisco nu-metal]].
** With the exception of Music/{{Deftones}}, who are widely liked in spite of their nu-metal past. It helps that they took great pains to distance themselves from the genre and never even really fit the label past ''Adrenaline'' and parts of ''Around the Fur''.

* Similar to Ike, Chris Brown once beat up his girlfriend Music/{{Rihanna}}. You have to be a ''really'' devoted R&B/hip-hop fan to get past that. However, he still has fans and chart-topping singles. It's just that the one thing people remember about him is the domestic abuse incident.

* Singer Fergie of The Black Eyed Peas is almost as well known for having once wet her pants on stage as she is for her music. Why do fans talk like she's the only one, when Marie Osmond, Hugh Jackman, and possibly Lady Gaga have similar stories to tell?

* B.o.B. will never live down "Flatline", which he released after a Twitter beef with UsefulNotes/NeilDeGrasseTyson. Thr song expresses B.o.B.'s belief that [[FlatWorld the Earth is flat]] (among other conspiracies), and has speech clips by Tyson himself disproving the theory.

** Tragically enough, it was reported that Ham [[DrivenToSuicide killed himself]] in 2012 because he was haunted by the thought he had tarnished his reputation by being remembered for copying that melody.

* Being a winner on a reality singing competition can be especially painful when [[TheRunnerUpTakesItAll the losers become more successful than you]]. Buddy Jewell, Taylor Hicks, and Diversity have all been overshadowed by acts like Miranda Lambert, Daughtry, and Susan Boyle, respectively. However, nobody has this worse than Matt Cardle. The winner of the 2010 X Factor, he has been overshadowed by ''three'' acts: Rebecca Ferguson, One Direction, and Cher Lloyd, who finished second to fourth place. As if that wasn't bad enough, add the fact that One Direction have become a global phenomenon and it's not easy being Matt Cardle.
