* The only Twisted Sister song people remember is "We're Not Gonna Take It", mostly because it was the theme for ArnoldSchwarzenegger's successful campaign for governor of [[FunetikAksent "Colliefohnia"]] in 2003. "I Wanna Rock" will ''sometimes'' get mentioned. The only people who remember "Burn in Hell" are either those who saw ''Film/PeeWeesBigAdventure'' (and that was [[LighterAndSofter a considerably toned-down version]]) or have heard the Dimmu Borgir (a Norwegian extreme metal band) cover.

* 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 and Devil You Know, 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=], Lajon Witherspoon of Music/{{Sevendust}}, 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}}, Jean Beauvoir (mostly for his work with Music/ThePlasmatics, though he is a major figure in the music industry), Doug Pinnick of King's X, Adam Warren of Oceano, Josh Travis of Music/{{Emmure}}, Glass Cloud, and the Tony Danza Tapdance Extravaganza, Mendel bij de Leij of Music/{{Aborted}}, Byron Davis of God Forbid (possibly also Corey Pierce and ''maybe'' the Coyle brothers, who are mixed-race), and Brittany Howard of Alabama Shakes ''might'' get a weak mention, and Mike Alexander of Music/{{Evile}} also occasionally gets mentioned by virtue of DeadArtistsAreBetter. 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 and Slash of Music/GunsNRoses are well-known figures, it is highly unlikely that they will be mentioned despite both being mixed-race.

-->''"The problem with only having one hit is that it has the unfortunate effect of giving the public at large a very narrow definition of your work, and oftentimes people get an entirely wrong impression. If all you know of Music/{{Devo}} is "Whip It", for example, you simply don't know their importance and the scope of their influence, and if all you know of Music/WarrenZevon is "Werewolves of London", you have an entirely inaccurate understanding of his work. (Beat) Carl Douglas is not that kind of artist."''

* The only Disney pop artists discussed outside of tween/teen media are Music/MileyCyrus (and [[ContractualPurity whatever minor scandal she's caught up in that month]]) and Music/TheJonasBrothers. And [[Music/DemiLovato the girl who]] [[NeverLiveItDown came back from having an eating disorder and self-harming]]. Maybe SelenaGomez too, at least for dating Music/JustinBieber. Music/MirandaCosgrove is likely [[AllAnimationIsDisney still thought of]] as a Disney star, in spite of the fact she works for Creator/{{Nickelodeon}}.

* The only progressive rock bands are Music/KingCrimson, Music/{{Yes}}, Music/{{Genesis}}, Music/PinkFloyd, and maybe JethroTull. And sometimes not even all of them - lots of people only know Genesis for their more pop-oriented 80s material and have no idea they ever did prog rock or had Peter Gabriel as a member. To a lesser extent, Yes and Tull sometimes gets the same treatment from people who only know the songs that show up on the radio. And King Crimson suffer a ''severe'' case of MainstreamObscurity - lots of people have heard the name and are vaguely aware that they're an influential band, few could name even one of their songs or albums.

* Except perhaps for Music/BlackSabbath and Music/{{Metallica}}, the only HeavyMetal that people know of or remember is HairMetal, and it's all from TheEighties. Try finding any non-metal fans who've seriously listened to Rainbow. Or Music/JudasPriest (except for "Breaking the Law" and ''maybe'' "You've Got Another Thing Comin'" or "Painkiller"). Or Music/{{Motorhead}} (except for "Music/AceOfSpades"). Or Music/IronMaiden (except for "Run to the Hills" and maybe "The Trooper"). Or Slayer (except for "Raining Blood", aka the other song that every beginning guitarist can play, since the intro riff is all that ever shows up). Or Pantera (except for the song "Walk", which just about everybody's heard, and maybe "Cowboys from Hell"). Or Megadeth (except for "Symphony Of Destruction" and "Peace Sells"). Or Cradle of Filth. Music/DeepPurple - the group that practically ''invented'' metal - will get mentioned, but only for "Smoke on the Water" (a.k.a. "that really dumb song that any mediocre guitarist can play," and the guitar riff is the only part of the song that exists). Even among hair bands, there are examples (when's the last time you heard anybody mention Dokken?). Hell, even the big two fall victim to this; ask a mainstream listener to name a Sabbath song that isn't "Iron Man", "War Pigs", or "Paranoid"; or a Metallica song that isn't "Enter Sandman", "Master of Puppets", "The Unforgiven", "Nothing Else Matters", or "One", and you'll probably be met with a blank stare.
