** Years later, Owl City later put out the song "All My Friends", which is influenced heavily by country pop instead of synthpop and viewed as a weak attempt at making a nostalgic "feel-good" arena-pop song. Unsurprisingly, fans were not pleased.

* In a similar vein, fellow British trip hop group Morcheeba faced criticism when they switched to a more pop-oriented sound on ''Fragments of Freedom'', and later on when they reformed without lead singer Skye Edwards. In the latter case, however, Skye wasn't fired from the band, and merely was busy with a solo career. She later re-appeared in the band beginning with ''Blood and Chocolate''.

* 90s trip-hop group Music/SneakerPimps. Any video of theirs on Website/YouTube is invariably seasoned with comments about how much the band sucked after Kelli Ali left and when Chris Corner replaced her, and comments in response will usually defend Chirs and claim that fans of Kelli can't "understand" the music now.

* 90s trip-hop group Music/SneakerPimps. Any video of theirs on Website/YouTube is invariably seasoned with comments about how much the band sucked after the original vocalist left and comments in response about how this first group of people just can't "understand" the music now. Bonus points if one of the two most "thumbed-up" comments for the video includes some variation of "What does it matter, can't we just all enjoy the music?"

* Music/AvengedSevenfold's self-titled release has been seen by some as a drastic change in their nature of playing. Some might also consider ''City Of Evil'' inferior as well, because it was the first album to not feature M. Shadows' screamish style featured on their previous releases. This often happens whenever the band members change their appearances. The most recent case being with M Shadows having grown out his hair. Largely averted with Zacky Vengeance, though - who is known to change his appearance quite regularly - other then when he decided to remove his snakebite piercings. A good portion of the fanbase is less-than-pleased with Arin Ilejay being their replacement drummer - even though, for obvious reasons, Jimmy "The Rev" Sullivan is unable to return to the band.

Even worse was the fact that Ilejay apparently kept trying to add his own stamp on the material only to be rebuffed by the rest of the band, who more or less forced him to play in the overly simplistic style that was the subject of much criticism on ''Hail to the King''.

* Yet another ElectronicMusic example lies in Music/Zedd. His material from his earlier days was ElectroHouse with some {{dubstep}} touches, and his first official album ''Clarity'' featured more pop-oriented tracks, but was still recognizably electro. But as his material continued taking a more pop radio friendly sound (complete with collaborations with the biggest names in pop music like Music/ArianaGrande and Music/JustinBieber), a massive BrokenBase ensued between those that miss his earlier sound and those that embrace his later sound starting from the release of his second full length album ''True Colors''.

* Music/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/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.
