** How has no one mentioned that the most renowned part of "Hey Jude" was improvised? When the song was supposed to end, during the fade out, Paul chanted "Better, better, better!" up the scale, and the Beatles, along with the thirty-six piece orchestra accompanying them, followed him for another four minutes. And the only reason Paul did it was because he was having fun! The song went on to become the Beatles' biggest selling hit, making this the Beatles' most memorable example of this trope.

** Sometime during the sessions for ''Their Satanic Majesties Request'', Bill Wyman had fallen asleep in the studio. As a prank, the rest of the band recorded his snoring and stuck it on at the end of his DreamWithinADream song, "In Another Land".

** "Carouselambra" from "In Through the Out Door" has a guitar multi-string bend tracked in at the beginning and in the middle of the guitar solo. This was the result of an earlier take where Jimmy Page's guitar strap broke, causing Page to hold on to the neck to keep the guitar from hitting the floor.

** The band originally performed "(Don't Go Back to) Rockville" in a faster, harder, punk-thrash style in concerts. When time came to record the song for their 1984 album ''Reckoning'', they decided on a whim to instead record the song in a slower, softer country style as an inside joke to their manager, Bertis Downs, who is a fan of country music. The country-styled arrangement has stayed ever since.

* The famous clarinet glissando that opens Gershwin's ''Rhapsody in Blue'' was not in the original score. It was first played during rehearsals by clarinettist Ross Gorman as a joke on Gershwin. Gershwin liked it and asked Gorman to keep playing it that way.

* Priestess have a couple interesting stories concerning their debut album, ''Hello Master''.
** "Run Home" features cowbell, which was originally added more or less as a joke but kept when they loved the sound it imparted to the song.
** "Everything That You Are" has a 25-second vamp on a single power chord after the first chorus, for no real reason other than it sounded cool.
** Finally, their SignatureSong "Lay Down" makes use of a guitar-playing technique called string skipping, which resulted from frontman Mikey Heppner accidentally breaking the A string on his guitar when writing the song.
** The album art itself is the product of last-minute improvisation. When the album was about to be released internationally, the band opted to change the cover art, enlisting artist Arik Roper. The initial result was identical to the final product except for the hand; Heppner liked the art the way it was but felt it was missing something, and a hand was the first thing that came to mind. He asked that a hand be added to the picture, so Roper digitally superimposed a photo of his own hand onto the cover, thus the orange hand rising out of the landscape.

* The Unicorns were planning out a set-list for a concert when they noticed that, because they were using abbreviated song titles and played the songs "Tuff Luff" and "Sea Ghost" right after each other, part of the list read "Tuff Ghost". They decided a tough ghost was actually an interesting lyrical concept and wrote a song of that name.

* After recording "Till the Money Comes", Main/JonathanCoulton tripped over his bass. It was kept in at the end of the track.

** "Stuck With Me" ended up with its NonAppearingTitle this way - the band were working on one song they hadn't given a name yet and another one called "Stuck With Me", and someone at the studio mislabeled the recordings. The band decided "Stuck With Me" fit the theme of the untitled song, and it became the new title. The original "Stuck With Me" became "Do Dah Dah" when it was released as a BSide.
