* 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, 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"), 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 Living Colour (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}}, 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 ''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. * The only songs Wiz Khalifa made is "See You Again". It is also the only song from [[Music/Furious7Soundtrack the soundtrack of Furious 7]] (or for that matter, the ''Fast and Furious'' soundtrack as a whole), despite there being a wide variety of other songs. 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.

Switched out a couple Metallica songs for a more iconic one.
* 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", "Paranoid", or ''maybe'' "N.I.B." or "Sweet Leaf" or a Metallica song that isn't "Enter Sandman", "For Whom the Bell Tolls", "Until it Sleeps", or "One", and you'll probably be met with a blank stare.

Added DiffLines:
* There is only one jazz fusion group, and that's Music/WeatherReport (if you're lucky, you ''may'' get a reference to Brand X, but often it'll have less to do with their music and more to do with them having Music/PhilCollins as a member). Music/MilesDavis, Music/JoniMitchell, and certain members of Weather Report are the only solo acts in this genre, as well. * Music/PhilCollins, as far as many people are concerned, only ever made soft rock and '80s pop (with or without Music/{{Genesis}}). It's often forgotten that Genesis actually took a few albums to become a pop band after Collins took the lead singer helm from Music/PeterGabriel, or that the first album he ever performed on (''Ark 2'' by Flaming Youth, which was actually a hit among critics, though not commercially successful) was more straightforward rock, or that he was a member of Brand X, who were moderately successful among the jazz fusion crowd, and remain one of the biggest names in the genre even after disbanding (many people often discuss how successful Collins was in Genesis and in his solo career, but they often leave out Brand X).

Added DiffLines:
** This has actually become a bit problematic, as any female-fronted band had inevitably been compared to Paramore. Music/{{Marmozets}}, for example, is often tagged with this despite having ''nothing'' in common with them except the fact that they're fronted by a woman.

* Japan: Gong and/or koto music. Something more modern? JPop, usually performed as an [[SongAssociation anime theme song]].

to:
* South Korea: [[Music/{{PSY}} Oppan]] Music/GangnamStyle!Music/GangnamStyle! If you're lucky, they'll acknowledge the existence of K-Pop, but they won't know that there are Korean artists that preform music that isn't K-Pop.

* 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. 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).
