* TheStoneRoses cancelled their planned tour of the USA in 1990 by saying "America doesn't deserve us yet." Now that's blatant No Export For You.

* {{Nujabes}} albums, in their entirety, including the Hydeout Productions collections, are not available in the United States. Used copies fetch high prices on eBay and Amazon.
* TheArk almost got all their albums distributed in the US, but opening a 2006 tour in DC, Ola made an ill-advised joke about how you "never know where planes are going in this country," and that this one was heading "in the right direction...toward the White House." Cue a plane back to Sweden, a distributor who wouldn't return their calls, and a single album (their most recent at the time) with a US version, which is hard to find due to them being known as "the guys who made that joke at the embassy."

* DuranDuran's ninth studio album, ''Medazzaland'', was never released in the UK. In fact it was only released in a handful of markets, notably the United States, Japan and Argentina. Indeed, The album's minor American hit single "Electric Barbarella" hasn't even made an appearance on any sort of greatest hits record that had a European release.

* TheCorrs inverted the trope, again for Australia, when they released their first live album in Australia along with their first album ''Forgiven Not Forgotten''. It eventually made it's way to Japan, and then an edited smaller release in Europe.

* PaulMcCartney's 1988 cover album ''Снова в СССР'' (English: ''Back in the USSR'') is an intentional example. [=McCartney=] intended the album to only have a release in the Soviet Union so Russian fans could have a new official album all to themselves, as they had often had to make do with bootlegs of Western albums. For a few years, it was - in a bit of a role reversal - rather difficult to get a copy of the record outside of the Soviet Union, until the record was given an international release in late 1991.

** Johnny’s Entertainment put this trope UpToEleven. Their position is 100% direct and clear: '''no Johnny’s Entertainment music for foreigners'''. Companies like SentaiFilmworks and {{Creator/Funimation}} had very difficult problems with this company, resulting in butchered releases of some series that contains music from this company due to their [[FantasticRacism Japanese-only]] policy. Indeed, those fans of ''Anime/YuGiOh'' who are frustrated about the ''Duel Monsters'' series not being released in the original Japanese in the United States have Johnny's to thank for their predicament.

** Same thing goes for Jessie J's ''Alive'', and this time it's because her record label believes that catchy, uptempo dancey pop rock "[[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Alive_(Jessie_J_album) [won't] work on [our] territory]]". For the longest time it was implied that an American release would come in early 2014. This was eventually scrapped altogether when Jessie J announced a new album. It was eventually released in America in August 2015.

** Same thing goes went for Jessie J's ''Alive'', and this time it's because which took nearly two years from its original release date to finally debut in America. A statement from her record label believes pretty much revealed that they thought catchy, uptempo dancey pop rock "[[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Alive_(Jessie_J_album) [won't] [wouldn't] work on [our] territory]]". For the longest time it was implied that an American release would come in early 2014. This was eventually scrapped altogether when Jessie J announced a new album. It was eventually thought that the chances of it being released in America were pretty much scrapped after the release of ''Sweet Talker'', but it eventually appeared on streaming services in August 2015.
