* Only after their break-up have many review sites and magazines realized how great and important to this generation Music/MyChemicalRomance was, with even rolling stone in their album guide calling Music/{{The Black Parade}} "an instant classic".

* Music/FallOutBoy's 2008 album, ''Folie a Deux'', while being appreciated by critics, had a very divisive reaction from their fanbase that started after their 2007 album, ''Infinity On High'' was released. It's even, apparently, received something close to OldShame status on the part of Patrick Stump, as the initial fan reaction towards the album's songs left a negative impact on him. While you'll still find fans that only like their first two albums, and nothing else, or those who don't care for it, more people have gown an appreciation for it in the years since, especially since it's more consistent with their previous works than their later releases since 2013. And that's all that needs to be said here.

** Similarly, Bowie's minimalistic, synth-heavy "[[RuleOfThree Berlin Trilogy]]" of the late 1970s (''[[Music/LowDavidBowieAlbum Low]]'', ''Music/{{Heroes}}'' and ''Music/{{Lodger}}''), on which he collaborated with Music/BrianEno and [[Music/KingCrimson Robert Fripp]], were misunderstood and low-selling by his previous standards (though ''"Heroes"'' was ''NME'''s Album of the Year for 1977). Now they're [[CultClassic cult classics]] noted for influencing SynthPop, [[NewWaveMusic New Wave]] and ambient music. The title track of ''"Heroes"'', which didn't make waves as a single, is now one of his most recognized and beloved songs.

* And speaking of trends Vindicated By History, AlternativeRock (or [[ArtifactTitle mainstream rock]] during TheNineties), the successor in popular music to the GlamRock and NewWave music of the [[TheEighties '80s]], also has received this treatment after its initial backlash, where it was commonly used as a pejorative by fans of '80s popular music (particularly HairMetal) and fans of then-current underground extreme music (such as {{Industrial|Music}} and DeathMetal). The stereotype of bands labeled with the ArtifactTitle of being "no talent three-chord junk" has greatly lessened, and people are a lot more discerning between the simplistic grunge of Music/{{Nirvana}}, Music/{{Silverchair}}, Music/{{Weezer}} and Music/LocalH and that of more sophisticated acts such as Music/{{Soundgarden}}, Music/TheSmashingPumpkins, Music/{{Primus}} and Music/CollectiveSoul that actually had very accomplished musicianship. And while people initially bemoaned the lack of scale-shredding "guitar gods", it did produce equally proficient "drum gods" in the form of Soundgarden's Matt Cameron, The Smashing Pumpkins' Jimmy Chamberlin, Music/{{Tool}}'s[[note]](like Soundgarden, more of a Metal band, but were part of much the same scene)[[/note]] Danny Carey, and Music/DaveMatthewsBand's Carter Beuford.

* Music/FrankZappa's music wasn't very successful during his lifetime. He did receive some critical attention and a loyal cult following, but since his work was such a GenreRoulette from the start that rock fans, jazz fans or classical music fans all had the idea he operated in a different genre then theirs. Thus they mostly ignored him. Other people were put off by either his intellectualism or the [[BawdySong bawdy sex comedy he used in his songs]]. The latter aspect was also the reason why some people saw him more as some kind of musical clown or novelty artist, like Music/SpikeJones. Since Zappa's death in 1993 his reputation has only grown. His collaborations with classical orchestras, like ''Music/LondonSymphonyOrchestra'', ''Music/ThePerfectStranger'' and ''Music/TheYellowShark'' have gained him more respect as a classical composer too. No doubt that in centuries to come it will be regarded as one of the most important composers of his time.

* Some Finnish people thought that having Music/{{Lordi}} as their country's entry in the 2006 EurovisionSongContest would be a national embarrassment. They ended up winning, breaking the points record in the process.

* No one cared about Music/{{Exhumed}} in their original era, and their efforts to change this with [[GrowingTheBeard Anatomy Is Destiny]] went unnoticed, eventually causing Matt Harvey to call it a day and focus on various other musical endeavors. Come 2009, [[Music/JobForACowboy Job for a Cowboy]] covered "The Matter of Splatter" as a bonus track, which created some renewed interest and helped encourage Harvey to give Exhumed another shot. Not only was ''All Guts, No Glory'' met with a very warm critical reception and decent sales, but the band found themselves getting put on high-profile tours left and right and co-headlining some of them. Other acts in metal have pulled similar comebacks, but few have had quite as drastic a change in status as Exhumed.

* Music/JohnColtrane is now one of the most respected and even beloved figures in jazz, but during his career, he was one of the most divisive, with some critics accusing him of being an 'enemy of jazz' and suchlike.

* {{Music/Aaliyah}} was a popular artist in her heyday, but there was a growing HypeBacklash that felt she owed more to her beauty and overproduction - thanks to Timbaland. Years later after her death, the enduring success of her music shows that the hype around her talent was entirely justified. She's now remembered as a great artist who died too young.

* Music/TheZombies' ''Music/OdesseyAndOracle'' was released in 1968 to little critical or commercial notice - it probably didn't help that the band broke up shortly before its release due to its being a bit of a TroubledProduction. After several flopped singles, "Time of the Season" became a surprise hit the following year, and this was enough to get the album a re-release, but it wasn't that much more successful. Nowadays ''Odessey And Oracle'' is critically acclaimed and regularly shows up on "Greatest Albums Of All Time" lists, and "Time Of The Season" keeps turning up in NothingButHits soundtracks to films or TV shows set in TheSixties.
