* 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").

** Thanks to Eric Emanuel Schmidt's play, the "Enigma Variations" are also not entirely unknown. Even then, most people only know the ninth variation (of 14), "Nimrod".

** 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).

** Additionally, when it comes to modern metal bands - as in, bands that got popular in the mid-'90s onward - the ones who are most likely to be named outside the metal community are Music/{{Korn}}, Music/RobZombie, Music/{{Rammstein}}, Music/MarilynManson, Music/{{Disturbed}}, Music/SystemOfADown, Music/{{Slipknot}} (see above), Music/KillswitchEngage, Music/LambOfGod, Music/{{Mastodon}}, Music/{{Trivium}}, Music/AvengedSevenfold, Music/FiveFingerDeathPunch, and Music/BringMeTheHorizon. In fact, it's often used as a sign of being a recent initiate in metal when one of the above are the first bands you name. The fact that they're the most mainstream friendly, lending them to be played on the radio and featured mainstream media, is the primary cause of this.

* If you look at many of the more commonplace [[TheEighties 1980s]] "various artists" compilations you'll find a rotating lineup of twenty-to-thirty songs, usually written around 1981-1986, that ''all'' of them will have a chunk of. "Jessie's Girl", "[[LandDownUnder Down Under]]", "The Safety Dance", "Come On Eileen", "[[Music/TearsForFears Everybody Wants To Rule The World]]", "[[DuranDuran Hungry Like The Wolf]]", "Somebody's Watching Me", "RockMeAmadeus", etc. Most of those songs are white HairMetal, ArenaRock or [[NewWaveMusic New Wave]] pop, usually with an iconic video, and maybe 30% of them are {{one hit wonder}}s or novelty songs. Few dance, rap, country or R&B numbers will be included. Made worse by the fact that many major 1980s artists, including Music/MichaelJackson, Music/{{Prince}}, Music/{{Madonna}}, and Creator/GeorgeMichael refuse(d) to license their songs to such best-of's.

** If people aren't mistakenly using Slipknot or Slayer as examples, the only death metal acts that exist are Music/CannibalCorpse and Music/{{Death}}, and ''maybe'' Music/{{Obituary}}, Music/MorbidAngel, or Music/{{Deicide}} if you're in the South.

* White rappers? Music/{{Eminem}} will always come to mind first.

Slug of Music/{{Atmosphere}} (who is sometimes mistakenly called "[[IAmNotShazam Atmosphere]]") is often lumped together in this category, though he's actually of MixedAncestry.

* Female fronted rock bands? Music/{{Evanescence}} or Music/{{Paramore}}. Music/{{Halestorm}}, Music/ThePrettyReckless and In This Moment might get a mention.
