*** Though a positive mention of a HairMetal band ''may'' somewhat get a pass from any or all of the following: the NostalgiaFilter (depending on the band), IfItsYouItsOkay (for a talented band that went through it as a phase, such as MotleyCrue or {{Loudness}}), because it's a parody or near-parody band (SteelPanther or TnT), or because there are some actual fans - whether of the niche fandom it still has or who are younger, new, and reevaluated a specific band as being "cool" ({{Music/WASP}} and {{Music/Cinderella}} are a couple of bands that happened to...)

** Really, anyone who is the face of pop music (especially pop music aimed for teenage girls) at any time will have that effect on people, depending on their tastes in music. It might be a combination of HypeBacklash, PeripheryDemographic and ItsPopularNowItSucks. Before Justin, it was Music/MileyCyrus and Music/TheJonasBrothers, and before that, BritneySpears and Music/TheBackstreetBoys, and then before that was Music/NewKidsOnTheBlock...

* The LoudnessWar, while it ''is'' a legitimately serious issue, can garner some particularly extreme reactions from audiophiles. While most listeners tend to reserve their spite for the more {{egregious}} cases (''[[Music/TheStooges Raw Power]]'', ''[[RedHotChiliPeppers Californication]]'', ''[[Music/{{Rush}} Vapor Trails]]'', ''[[QueensOfTheStoneAge Songs for the Deaf]]'', ''[[Music/{{Skillet}} Comatose]]'', ''[[Music/DepecheMode Playing the Angel]]'' etc.), there are a lot of people who will freak out if a piece of audio hits full scale more than a handful of times, even if the end result is almost completely indistinguishable from its pre-gain state. If it's too loud, they won't listen, period, and will more than likely delete the album from their computer and/or sell/throw away the CD. One of the first articles about this phenomenon in a 1999 issue of ''Stereophile'' magazine had a veteran engineer say that he had "not heard a good sounding CD since 1993" and that "I can't listen... it's the compression that ruins it for me".

** Ironically, the above quote is by Billie Joe Armstrong, frontman of GreenDay—the band that gets unfairly maligned more than any other (save for TheOffspring) in the punk war.

Added DiffLines:

* The reaction to [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PNjG22Gbo6U this]] parody of a gangster rap song (and its tropes) by TV comedian Jan Böhmermann. It went so far that editorials in major newspapers denounced Böhmermann as classist, racist and making fun of poor and immigrant Germans. On the other hand [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sd-bM92nFvA Kollegah]] (one of the proponents of the genre in question) said it was ActuallyPrettyFunny and said the whole thing was way overblown.

** Similar happened on at least one upload of {{Miyavi}}'s cover of "Blow" by {{Music/Nirvana}}.
** Though, a similar incident was averted quite well on the Youtube upload of [[Music/HidetoMatsumoto hide]] covering TheDoors "Light My Fire," if only in a case of what could possibly seen as [[FanDumb irresistible]] [[HateDumb force]] meeting [[NeverSpeakIllOfTheDead immovable object]]: the racists and homophobes were shut down almost immediately by both hide fans AND Doors fans embarrassed over their fellow fans' behavior.
