* "Sandstorm" by Darude seems to have suffered from this the most. Back in its day, it was THE most popular and awesome song to listen to at dance clubs. Nowadays, after being overplayed and exposed to so much MemeticMutation on the internet, many modern EDM artists and enthusiasts just don't see the song as anything special or spectacular anymore.

* Eiffel 65 sounds a lot less fresh today after thousands of rappers ran the Autotune gimmick into the ground.

* "Funk" effects in rock music (the "wah-wah" pedal, etc.). When these first appeared in the late '60s in works by bands like Music/{{Cream}}, they sounded dangerous and even diabolical. But then, in the '70s, so many TV shows began to use mild funk flourishes in their theme songs that today a style that once offended so many people just sounds ridiculous. This was partially fixed in the early '80s, when (if only in that one instance) Music/MichaelJackson's ''Music/{{Thriller}}'' managed to make funk sound {{Badass}} again.

* IceT was one of the pioneers of GangstaRap in the West Coast, influencing NWA and many rap artist and groups afterwards. His lyrics about gang life (since he was a gang member back then), selling drugs, pimping (did some of this as well), and violence were eye opening during the 80s. One of his most famous rap songs was Colors, which was a track used for a 1988 film of the same name and was about the war between the Bloods and the Crips. He also started in some successful films. And created a controversial rock band. However, Ice-T is mostly known today for being the [[TokenMinority black cop]] on ''Series/LawAndOrderSVU'' and his rap roots aren't seen as anything special and he's often forgotten in place of other rap artist of his time.

** Music/TheBeatles pioneered and popularized so many of the recording and musical techniques commonly heard in rock and pop music today that it can be hard for newcomers to truly appreciate how ground-breaking they actually were. In particular, ''Music/SgtPeppersLonelyHeartsClubBand'' can suffer from this. (It was particularly impressive for being recorded with only 4 tracks. In today's digital world, where everything can be done on a computer, most people don't understand what that even means and why it's so impressive.)

* The arrival of Music/HilaryDuff on the DisneyChannel (and, to some extent, the rebooted ''Series/MickeyMouseClub'' as ''MMC'') led to unexpected success on the DisneyChannel with the equally unexpected success of her show Series/LizzieMcGuire, helped the network cultivate a tween and teen audience they rarely had before, and the push of Duff as a TeenIdol and [[IdolSinger pop princess]], the family-friendly alternative to the increasingly spicy, MMC stars Music/BritneySpears and Msuic/ChristinaAguilera, was new and unprecedented. It helped Hollywood Records escape from being mostly well-known for rereleasing Music/{{Queen}} albums, and her debut, ''Metamorphosis'', was the biggest selling CD in the Disney-owned label's history at the time. As Hilary's receded from the background and stopped releasing pop albums, and successors such as Music/MileyCyrus, Music/SelenaGomez, Music/DemiLovato and Music/TheJonasBrothers took Hilary's spotlight, it can be hard to picture the DisneyChannel not [[CashCowFranchise heavily cross-promoting]] [[IdolSinger pop-music singing]] [[TeenIdol teen idols]] starring in [[PeripheryDemographic tween-marketed]] [[KidCom kidcoms]], all working from the same basic business model Music/HilaryDuff popularized.

* Rapper Rakim completely changed the way people rapped by incorporating internal rhymes and complicated wordplay. If you compare his rhymes to those of any earlier artist, such as Music/RunDMC, they're worlds apart. However, many modern hip hop fans just hear his music as boring '80s hip hop.
