* Music/TheBlackKeys are often considered the 2010s' equivalent of The White Stripes. It helps that their names contrast each other.

* Many fans of Buckner & Garcia's ''Music/PacManFever'' consider [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Wl2uM_KX_9g "Wreck-It Ralph"]] (which the band recorded for [[Disney/WreckItRalph the movie's]] soundtrack) to be this trope. In terms of theme and style, it's a perfect fit.

* Aeralie Brighton, the OneWomanWail singer on the ''VideoGame/OriAndTheBlindForest'' soundtrack, may be seen/heard as a spiritual successor to Music/LisaGerrard. In fact, [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yN94CpDw33I "Limitless"]], a side collaboration with ''Ori'' composer Gareth Coker, is highly reminiscent of Gerrard's work with Music/DeadCanDance.

* Arch Enemy's early albums (''Black Earth'', ''Stigmata'', and ''Burning Bridges'') have all been described as a continuation of sorts to {{Carcass}}'s sound from the time of their fourth album, ''Heartwork'' (which Arch Enemy's lead guitarist, Michael Amott, played on).

* The soundtrack to Film/BeginAgain is pretty much the second Music/NewRadicals album we never thought we'd get. While most of the songs are performed by other artists, Gregg Alexander and Danielle Brisebois wrote or co-wrote all but one of them.

* This [[http://www.popmatters.com/column/123260-pour-some-sugarland-on-me-why-country-music-is-the-new-classic-rock/ PopMatters article]] makes a convincing case that modern CountryMusic, with its radio-friendliness and penchant for {{power ballad}}s, is the spiritual successor to ArenaRock.

* Music/PinkFloyd's ''Music/TheFinalCut'' is seen by many to be a successor to their earlier album ''Music/TheWall''. Both are concept albums dealing with pain, loss, and detachment.

*** ''Amused To Death'' was actually written at first as, literally, a sequel to Waters' ''Radio KAOS'' album. Roger's objections to the first Iraq War (and its depiction by the news media as it unfurled) changed all of that.

* Music/GreenDay's concept album ''Music/TwentyFirstCenturyBreakdown'' is almost a direct sequel to their previous rock opera "Music/AmericanIdiot." One could go as far as to argue that this could go beyond spiritual successor, as they both take place around the same time, deal with the same basic themes, and have very similar characters.

* Music/SunKilMoon is the Spiritual Successor to Music/RedHousePainters. When Mark Kozelek attempted to get RHP back together in 2002, their music had changed to drastically that he considered the project a separate one and renamed it to Sun Kil Moon.

* [[Music/LambOfGod Lamb Of God's]] 2012 album ''Resolution'' is considered by some to be one to Music/{{Pantera}}'s 1997 album ''The Great Southern Trendkill'' in terms of both the dark, depressing and frightening tone and style of both albums. Hell, just compare Lamb Of God's "King Me" with either Pantera's "Floods" or "10's", both styles are alike!

* Groove Coverage's "Little June" was this to Mike Oldfield's "Moonlight Shadow", which they previously covered. Both are about [[GriefSong the murder of a loved one]], and have similar melodies.

* {{Music/Jack White}}'s solo work, unsurprisingly, feels like an extension of Music/TheWhiteStripes, of which he was a member of before the band's dissolving in 2011. Just like with the White Stripes, Jack White's music is heavy blues GarageRock featuring lots of distortion and feedback, with White's distinctive vocals.

* Both {{Post-Grunge}} and {{Metalcore}} have been called the SpiritualSuccessor to HairMetal for different reasons. The former for its lyrical content, near total dominance of mainstream HardRock, "poppy" hard rock nature, and abundance of same-sounding FollowTheLeader acts. As for the latter, well, just look at [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jXut97F2Qew this]].
