* Music/AllTimeLow attempted a more Pop album experiment when they signed to Interscope for their fourth album, ''Dirty Work''. This lead to divisive reactions from their fanbase that still persist to this day that's lead to massive BrokenBase between fans of their more Punk/Emo-leaning brand of PopPunk/Emo Pop and the fans who like their more Pop-leaning works. Reactions range from "It's their best album yet" to "It's their worst album yet," to "It's a SoOkayItsAverage experiment that's more disappointing than anything." Basically, the album's over reliance on Pop lead to many wrong decisions made during the production of it. These being: too many producers, some the band had worked with before, some they would go on to work with afterwards, and some they shouldn't have ever worked with, too many cowriters on each song, some worked, others really didn't, weak production on most of the songs leading to low-fidelity and bad music mixing, and just a tumultuous experience for All Time low, which lead them to resign to Hopeless and [[CreatorBacklash hate the whole experience]]. Even some reviews didn't like it, some saying stuff along the lines of most of the songs were weak, there was too much autotune, the band lost their way after having good previous albums, and other things. After ''Dirty Work'', they focused all of their energies to recording ''Don't Panic'', which has undone most of the damage as it's a far more focused, consistent, and better-written album. Unfortunately, though, they seemed eager to try again, as when they went in to record ''Future Hearts'', they ironed out the Emo that's been noticeable in their sound since their third album to try to get back to a more general Pop Punk sound like on their first few. However, while it's generally agreed to be better than ''Dirty Work'', it's still far from a perfect album and has several songs just as bad, if not worse, as some of that one's got. Hopefully they'll iron out the kinks on future albums.

** Unfortunately, not. After releasing ''Future Hearts'' and their second live album on Hopeless, they signed to Fueled By Ramen and [[HistoryRepeats did the exact same things again]] on ''Last Young Renegade'', only it somehow came out more disappointing than ''Dirty Work'' like they'd [[LaserGuidedAmnesia forgotten why that album failed]] and has caused ''[[BrokenBase further]]'' riffs in their fanbase on both sides of the spectrum from the people who love their Pop side to the ones who feel they can't produce good Pop music and wish they'd stick to working off their previously-established PopPunk sound. It's definitely a more consistent album in sound than ''Dirty Work'', or ''Future Hearts'', but it's nowhere near as good as their other past releases.

* Music/BobDylan: The UrExample in popular music. Acoustic to Electric with ''Music/BringingItAllBackHome''. As TheOtherWiki will [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Electric_Dylan_controversy tell you]], this was SeriousBusiness. Please note: this is TheyChangedItNowItSucks that warrants a (fairly long and ''extremely'' well-sourced) article on TheOtherWiki. His 1979 conversion to Christianity and the resulting ''Music/SlowTrainComing'' album led to a similar backlash.

* Music/TangerineDream, poster children of the Berlin School of ElectronicMusic, were accused of betraying their own genre when they started to actually ''compose'' their music in 1978 instead of just improvising and experimenting and tinkering with running sequencers.
* In contrast, Music/{{Kraftwerk}} were frowned upon around the same time for the extensive use of sequencing on ''The Man-Machine''. Until then, their music was almost fully electronic, but still hand-made with no technical aids. ''The Man-Machine'''s ultra-tight timing and precisely repetitive style made it sound like Music/{{Kraftwerk}} actually ''were'' robots instead of human beings.

* TaylorSwift is the undisputed Country Music Queen of this trope. Her first album was surprisingly mature in content, especially given her young age. The second, however, switched to a "teen country-pop" format with songs that wouldn't sound out of place on a Miley Cyrus or Jonas Brothers album. Needless to say, this has caused quite the BrokenBase to form; one half (mostly the younger half) loves the change in tone. "Soulless Sell-Out" is one of the ''nicer'' things they have to say about her, and made worse in that, because she writes most of her own songs, she can't even blame ExecutiveMeddling for it. She has "We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together" and "I Knew You Were Trouble", both unapologetically pop songs which hit number one on the Billboard Hot 100.

* Music/MileyCyrus' ''Can't Be Tamed''. Some didn't enjoy her darker image and the overusage of "electro-pop-ish" technology. Her album ''Bangerz''. Even more so as parents to ''HannahMontana'' fans [[http://edition.cnn.com/2013/08/27/living/outraged-parents-why-miley-cyrus-performance-sets-girls-and-women-back/ expressed disgust]] over her present image, and to top it all off, her performance at the 2013 MTV Video Music Awards.

* If you asked a fan of Music/TheRollingStones what there worst move was, chances are it would be when they embraced psychedelia in 1967.

* If you asked a fan of Music/TheRollingStones what there their worst move was, chances are it the answer would be when they embraced psychedelia in 1967. 1967 with ''Between The Buttons'' and ''Their Satanic Majesties Request''. While this period has it fans, many felt that the band was out of its element. [[CreatorBacklash Even the band themselves thought it was a mistake and, as a result, very few songs from this era are looked back on fondly, let alone played on stage]].

* In 1999, Music/TheAquabats abruptly transitioned from the predominant brass-heavy ska sound of their first two albums into a Devo-influenced keyboard-driven rock/New Wave sound. During the early 2000s, the band's trumpet players departed the group, completely removing their once characteristic horn section from their music. This ultimately sharply divided The Aquabats' fanbase; although there are many fans who prefer the band's newer sound, especially following the popularity of TheAquabatsSuperShow, many older fans continue to voice a vehement dislike of their newer synthpop-influenced albums, even going so far as to start petitions urging the band to bring back their horn section.

* Music/{{Kreator}} got hit with this big time when they started to deviate away from ThrashMetal. Even when they returned to it, a lot of it viewed it as much softer than ''Pleasure to Kill''. ''Phantom Antichrist'', on the other hand, seems to be getting a lot of positive remarks.
