** Dee Dee Ramone completely owned up to his terrible rap album, "Standing in the Spotlight". However, one song that originated on said album, "The Crusher", was unexpectedly revived for ''Adios Amigos'', the band's final studio album... Albeit sung by Dee Dee's replacement C.J. Ramone, and rearranged slightly to downplay the hip-hop influences.

* Shock rocker Music/AliceCooper's early psychedelic period of 1969-70 and his bizarre experimental years of 1977-83, as well as his "hair metal" years of 1986-91 (except for "Poison", his biggest post-seventies hit) are largely ignored by the man himself as well as most fans.

* Music/{{Heart}} have disowned "All I Wanna Do Is Make Love to You" and refuse to play it live any more due to the BrokenAesop the song embodies - that it's okay to intentionally use someone to get pregnant during a one night stand due your husbands' infertility without getting their consent or disclosing your relationship status and that unprotected sex with a complete stranger is an acceptable risk. Note that this song was recorded in ''1990'' - [=AIDS=] was well documented by that stage making the song's message even more dubious. With the rise of DNA testing/counselling in recent times, the chances of getting away with something like this in modern times is unlikely. Heart have gone on record to say the message of the song is "hideous" and they felt under pressure to record it as a favour to Creator/RobertJohnMuttLange who wrote the song.

* Music/DavidBowie wasn't too proud of most of his pre-''Space Oddity'' work, but by far the most infamous example of that bunch is the SoBadItsGood 1967 novelty single "The Laughing Gnome", which was successfully re-released by his old label after he hit it big in TheSeventies. When he was [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sound_and_Vision_Tour#History prepping his Sound+Vision tour]], ''New Musical Express'' spoofed it by encouraging those participating in the decide-the-setlist phone polling to get "The Laughing Gnome" in. When Bowie saw the early results, he [[WhatCouldHaveBeen initially toyed with performing]] "The Laughing Gnome" in arrangement influenced by Music/TheVelvetUnderground, but when he discovered that its appearance was due to a troll campaign, he [[WhyFandomCantHaveNiceThings canceled the phone polling concept entirely]]. In his "canon" career, the song "Too Dizzy" has been left off of all reissues of 1987's ''Never Let Me Down'' -- which is generally regarded as his worst album anyway -- and he regarded that album and its predecessor ''Tonight'' as mistakes (albeit with a few good songs, particularly "Loving the Alien" and "Time Will Crawl"), the result of trying to please the new mainstream pop-rock fans he'd gained via ''Let's Dance'' rather than himself.

** The duo have displayed dislike of Santa Rosa, Ah Vilka Tider, I Saw It In The Mirror, Dum Dum Diddle, Summer Night City, You Owe Me One. Some of their unreleased songs that appeared as part of the ABBA Undeleted medley - notably Here Comes Ruby Jamie and Just Like That - had sections cut out because they were too embarrassed to release them.

* Myles Yang has already grown to hate ''Quiet World'' and views it as the thing that got Native Construct's name out there and little else, and their upcoming second album is intended to be the album that accurately reflects what he wants the band to be.

* Long before he launched himself to stardom on British television, Creator/RickyGervais was a 22-year old performing in an [[TheEighties 80's]] [[NewWaveMusic New Wave]]/electropop duo called Seona Dancing. The group had a pair of (extremely) minor hits, and featured Gervais dressing like Music/DavidBowie while sporting massive hair. The duo's music video for the second track, "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zXhSqmfRTfY Bitter Heart]]", was filmed for 300 quid in a scummy parking garage near the Creator/{{BBC}} offices. Predictably, TV interviewers mentioned it in every interview he did soon after the video was discovered. Gervais is reportedly still embarassed by it, and many note that for a guy who seemed oddly resistant to being famous when he first debuted in ''Series/TheOfficeUK'', he sure tried his best to become a superstar as a young man.
