** It's also worth noting that fans of such teen pop stars will often cry foul when they go DarkerAndEdgier. This has happened with BritneySpears since with "I'm A Slave 4 U", MileyCyrus since "Can't Be Tamed", JustinTimberlake with his solo work, and so forth.
* BruceSpringsteen, Dave Matthews, Music/PearlJam and other artists who have strong cult followings suffer from this with just about every major release. Springsteen, in particular, has hordes of fans at places like Backstreets and Stone Pony London who kvetch about each new record at or shortly before the time of its release, only to eventually decide that it's GOLD compared to the next album that comes out a few years later.

* Some MyChemicalRomance fans went totally insane over Danger Days. Any song that passes Gerard's lips that isn't about death is, to them, not worth listening to. Screw band evolution. Screw happiness. Screw ''life''.

* [[Music/AvrilLavigne Avril Lavigne]] upon the release of "What The Hell". The message of the song and especially the music video ruined FOREVER any perceptions of her as the sweet, next door type.
** [[Music/BritneySpears Britney Spears]] at the end of the [[GirlNextDoor innocent girl next door]] phase of her career would qualify for similar reasons.

* Any new pop star (MileyCyrus, DemiLovato, JonasBrothers, BritneySpears, SelenaGomez, JustinTimberlake, etc.) ruins the genre of Pop forever. Just read the iTunes reviews of the songs to get an idea of how {{serious|Business}} this can get.

* LinkinPark. A ton of us are tired of people saying that ''Minutes to Midnight'' and ''A Thousand Suns'' ruined them forever.

* After years of being bashed for their artsy prog-rock pretentiousness, {{Yes}} released their ''90125'' album with a more conventional rock sound--and were immediately declared Ruined Forever. When they later moved back towards prog-rock with ''Union'' and ''Keys to Ascension'', much of their ''90125''-''Big Generator'' fanbase likewise declared Yes to be Ruined Forever.

** YMMV on that one, it's more of a BrokenBase matter. Some didn't like ''Minutes to Midnight'' and enjoyed ''A Thousand Suns'', or vice versa. And then there are some who like [[TakeAThirdOption both.]]

* Fans of ''Against Me!'' claimed the band sold out when they moved from the tiny No Idea label to Fat Wreck Chords in 2003, to the point where fans slashed the tires of the bands tour van and vandalised it and reportedly poured bleached over their merch table. The bizarre thing is that Fat Wreck Chords was well known for being anti-establishment indie label. Ironically, there was a lot less outcry when the band left FWC for an actual major label, Creator/SireRecords, in 2007.

* DavidBowie has long had a broken fanbase due to his fondness for the ''NewSoundAlbum'' trope, but wailing and gnashing of teeth hit a fever pitch when he switched to mainstream pop-rock for ''Let's Dance'' and had a NewbieBoom...

* Many classic rock fans will tell you that rock was ruined once {{MTV}} premiered. Hence the fact that classic rock stations usually stick to music made before about 1982 ("Private Eyes" by Hall & Oates, released in November of 1981, is usually the cut-off song on such stations).

** Not only that, but any song ever sampled by a hip-hop or rap artist becomes ruined forever. Such as KanyeWest sampling Music/DaftPunk's "Harder, Better, Faster, Stronger," though plenty of examples of this trope can be found by searching through the Youtube comments of ''every song that's ever been sampled''.

* RogerWaters is taking over PinkFloyd now that Syd Barrett left? Roger's changing the band's style to be more satirical? Roger is leaving the band for his solo career? Roger is disbanding Pink Floyd? [[TheBandMinusTheFace The band is getting back together without Roger]]? ALL OF THIS ruined Pink Floyd forever!

* Cat Stevens has a classic roc themed album called ''Foreigner''? The synthetic ''Numbers'' a few years later? And he converts to Islam and changes his name? One guess to what that would mean...
