** There is no one called Pink Floyd in the band. Lampshaded in the lyrics for "Have a Cigar" - "Oh, by the way, which one's Pink?" which is something they apparently got asked a lot. The main character of ''The Wall'' is named Pink, but his last name is never mentioned.



** Liquid Tension Experiment's "Three Minute Warning" goes the other way and lasts over 27 minutes.

* Neither KatyPerry nor anyone else kisses a girl in the video for "I Kissed A Girl"


Added DiffLines:

* There is a category of instrument called woodwind. While most of them are actually made of wood, the flute, which is usually made entirely out of metal, is also included in this category.
* Music/SonataArctica's album ''Silence'' is actually mostly quite loud hard rock.

* The Music/TheDresdenDolls are not from Dresden, nor are they dolls. "Dresden" refers to a German city that was bombed in World War II, and produced porcelain dolls before the bombing.

* The [[Music/{{ACDC}} AC/DC]] compilation album ''Film/IronMan2'' rather disappointingly doesn't include a cover of the eponymous Music/BlackSabbath song.
** Also, despite being labeled a soundtrack, only two songs appear in the film.

* Music/MarinaAndTheDiamonds, Music/LCDSoundSystem, Music/OwlCity, Five For Fighting, Music/NineInchNails, Music/FortMinor, Music/FlorenceAndTheMachine, The Ready Set, and Passenger aren't bands. They're oddly-named {{Stage Name}}s and/or solo projects.

** Music/FlorenceAndTheMachine is a variant: it started as a duo, Florence Welch and Isabella "Machine" Summers. Not only a whole slew of musicians were added, but [[FaceOfTheBand Florence's proeminence]] makes some consider the band a downright solo project.

* The Brazilian band Engenheiros do Hawaii, "engineers from Hawaii". For starters, they hail from one of the country's coldest states, and were formed by architecture students (the name mocks the guys from engineering school who wore surf shorts).

* Music/DanielAmos: In the short story from the ''Music/{{Alarma}}'' liner notes, the narrator visits a city named Light Of The World. "It had to be some sort of bizarre joke, as the only light emanating from it was dim and pallid."

Added DiffLines:

* With a name like Music/TheDarkness, most would assume they'd be a DeathMetal or BlackMetal band. They're actually very accessible and glammy HardRock.

* Music/JohannSebastianBach's ''Mass in B Minor'' is actually mostly in the key of D Major. Bach himself only called it "Grand Catholic Mass". After studying the Kyrie part (which is in B Minor), a choir leader in 19th century Berlin started referring to it as Mass in B Minor, and the name stuck.

* You would expect Music/JohannSebastianBach's ''Mass in B Minor'' to be a dark-sounding work full of OminousLatinChanting, like other well-known Latin religious works. But despite the "B Minor" in the name, the Mass is dominated not by ominousness, but by positive and sad, but not aggresive, themes. Indeed, much of the Mass is not actually in B Minor.
