** Rock bassists: Les Claypool and Geddy Lee. Flea, Cliff Burton, and Geezer Butler are also commonly mentioned and you ''might'' find Chris Squire, Steve Harris, Justin Chancellor, or Ryan Martinie getting namedropped every once in a blue moon.

** Rock drummers: [[Music/TheBeatles Ringo Starr]] is the most famous one, but not considered the best. If someone else is mentioned it is probably Keith Moon or Neil Peart. John Bonham, Lars Ulrich, Joey Jordison, Dave Grohl, and Danny Carey also sometimes get tossed out.

** Southern rock acts from the '70s - Allman Brothers, Lynyrd Skynyrd, the Eagles - often get lumped in with the country acts, even though they were inspired by diverse styles of music.

* Black rock musicians? Music/JimiHendrix is usually the first that comes to mind. Others who might get mentioned are Clarence Clemons of [[Music/BruceSpringsteen The E Street Band]], Howard Jones of Music/KillswitchEngage, Carter Beauford, Boyd Tinsley, Rashawn Ross, and the late [=LeRoi=] Moore of the Music/DaveMatthewsBand, Lenny Kravitz, Tom Morello of Music/RageAgainstTheMachine and Music/{{Audioslave}}, William [=DuVall=] of Music/AliceInChains (though, expect him to be referred to as "that black guy who replaced Layne Staley after he died"), Kele Okereke of Music/BlocParty, Sergio Vega of Music/{{Deftones}} (who, like [=DuVall=], is likely to be referred to as "the black dude who replaced Chi Cheng"), Tony [=MacAlpine=], and the members of Music/LivingColour (or, at the very least, Vernon Reid). Tosin Abasi of Music/AnimalsAsLeaders, Terrance Hobbs and Mike Smith of Music/{{Suffocation}}, Derrick Green of Music/{{Sepultura}}, Doug Pinnick of King's X, Adam Warren of Oceano, and Brittany Howard of Alabama Shakes ''might'' get a weak mention. Prince should really be on the list, but he's usually considered rap/R&B, and only "rock" during the ''Film/PurpleRain'' era; [[ArsonMurderAndJaywalking plus, his mother was white]]. Michael Jackson could also be counted if you focused on "Beat It" and a handful of others. Darius Rucker of Music/HootieAndTheBlowfish might've gotten a mention as well, but lately he's known more for his fruitful CountryMusic career in TheNewTens. Lastly, while Phil Lynott of Music/ThinLizzy is a well-known figure, it is highly unlikely that he will be mentioned despite having been mixed-race.

* Female fronted rock bands? Music/{{Evanescence}} or Music/{{Paramore}}. Music/{{Halestorm}}, Music/ThePrettyReckless, Butcher Babies, Lacuna Coil, and In This Moment might get a mention. Metal fans are also likely to mention Doro (and probably also Warlock), Holy Moses, Arch Enemy, The Agonist, Nightwish, and Epica, and there may also be rare mentions of Abnormality, Cerebral Bore (though Simone Pluijmers has not been a member for some time), and Entheos.
** Transwomen in rock? Mina Caputo. Jayne County may also receive a mention, and metal fans may also name Marissa Martinez.

** This is a cause of much annoyance for many other white rappers. If you're a white male aspiring to be rapper, expect to get compared to Eminem a lot (even if it's as a compliment). If you're a white female aspiring to be a rapper however... well, expect to get called out as an "Iggy Azalea knockoff".

* Music/MCHammer is known for his breakthrough hit ''U Can't Touch This'' and absolutely nothing else. In his heyday, he was not even close to being considered a one-hit wonder.

Added DiffLines:

* To most people, Music/LedZeppelin have two songs ("Whole Lotta Love" and "Stairway to Heaven"), and an EpicRiff that everyone knows but nobody could tell you what it's from ("Kashmir").

** Combined with this and PublicMediumIgnorance, Music/{{Slipknot}} has become the masked public faces of both modern metal and the extreme end of it. This is despite the fact that they don't play DeathMetal, and never have before (though it ''is'' a well-known influence and elements of it pop up in their sound with reasonable frequency). In reality, the type of metal they play is heavy yet accessible enough to be played on mainstream rock radio. Yet, when asked to name a "modern metal band" or "extreme metal band", Slipknot will likely be the one who pops up. [[MainstreamObscurity Most people who aren't fans can't name a single song from them]], except ''maybe'' "Wait and Bleed", "Before I Forget", or "Psychosocial". Along with Slayer, they are most likely to be mistakenly thought of as a "death metal band".

* Similar to the other one, the only rappers that most people will be able to name are Music/JayZ, Music/{{Eminem}}, Music/SnoopDogg, Dr. Dre (largely because of his headphones), Music/LilWayne, Music/TupacShakur, Music/TheNotoriousBIG, and possibly Music/KanyeWest and/or Music/{{Drake}}. Music/OutKast might receive a rare mention, but only for "Hey Ya!", which is hardly representative of their style. Music/TechN9ne ''might'' also come up, but [[MainstreamObscurity don't expect anyone to be able to name one of his songs]]. They may also be able to name Music/IceCube and Music/IceT, but odds are that they will only know them as actors and not as rappers (though, with the success of ''Film/StraightOuttaCompton'', this may be changing for the former).
