* 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.

* Music/KylieMinogue's DarkerAndEdgier offering, ''Impossible Princess'', was critically and commercially reviled upon its release in 1997, as she had been previously known for her cheerful image and sound. Once she returned to the spotlight with a sleeker dance-pop sound, music critics and fans revisited ''Impossible Princess'' and found it to be much better than it was first perceived.

** During Music/TheBeatles' later years, their post-''Sgt. Pepper[='=]s'' work got mixed reviews upon their release. ''The Beatles'' (Music/TheWhiteAlbum) was criticised for its satirical songs in a turbulent, political climate, as well as for its lack of coherence stemming from tensions flaring between the band-members. ''Music/AbbeyRoad'' got flack for its overuse of synths and perceived overproduction, which made the album feel overproduced to many people. In the years since their release, both The White Album and ''Abbey Road'' are now considered among the greatest albums of all time for the very reasons they were criticised in the first place.
