* Music/SpikeJones: Very popular during the 1940s and 1950s, but most people only saw him as a musical clown, parodying hits and doing sketches and skits more typical of a circus act than a regular musician. As a result nobody took him seriously and failed to see that his arrangements and orchestrations where actually quite complicated to pull off, especially considering all of it was done ''live''! Only after his death did music historians finally merit him.

* Music/MilesDavis: His funk-influenced 1972 album ''On the Corner'' was critically panned and a commercial failure upon its release. Now it's recognized as a huge influence in the development of hip-hop, electronica, and drum and bass, as well as being one of his best albums.
** His 1974 album ''Big Fun'' received the same treatment, though it was more a case of being ignored than being reviled. Four ~25-minute songs coming out at the start of the disco era will do that to you. ''On the Corner'' inspired vitriolic hatred because jazz purists saw Miles' increasing use of tape editing and rock/funk influences (including the use of electric instruments) as ruining jazz purity. His wont for ''On the Corner'' to be mastered for AM radio fidelity simply so kids would hear his new album and get back into listening to him instead of James Brown [[BrokenBase was the last straw]] for some fans.
** Taking a broader view, the fusion era in general; at the time Miles and Teo Macero editing performances on these records was very controversial and alienated jazz purists, but the albums are now usually recognized as masterpieces.

* 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 {{The Black Parade}} "an instant classic".

* ''Thelonious Monk:'' Early in his career he was seen as an eccentric, but later he became respected as someone who was way ahead of his time.

* Music/NorahJones: Although her early work has gotten her some HypeBacklash, her 2009 album, ''The Fall'' was seen as a betrayal to her overall jazz sound. However, as time has gone on, it's become recognized as one of the greatest breakup albums of all time and a hell of a grower. It's seen now as more of a Blues/Jazz fusion record.

* Music/CharlieParker: Once seen as a cacophonic musician just noodling about. After his death re-evaluated as a genius and an innovator, effectively paving the way for be-bop and freejazz.

* ''Magazine/RollingStone'' magazine, due to its [[LongRunner decades long history]] and changing staff, tends to praise bands and albums that its prior reviewers once trashed, like Music/BlackSabbath, Music/LedZeppelin, ''Music/WishYouWereHere'' by Music/PinkFloyd, and ''Ritual de lo Habitual'' by Jane's Addiction.

* Music/DavidBowie's ''Music/HunkyDory''. At the time, he was still known as a OneHitWonder; the album's first-run sales were middling, and the one single ("Changes") was a blip in the States and failed to chart in Britain. Fast forward five months to a little album called ''Music/TheRiseAndFallOfZiggyStardustAndTheSpidersFromMars]]''... the album is now frequently cited as his second-best or even best, often making "best album" lists, even outselling ''Ziggy'' itself by the end of the year. "Changes", "Queen Bitch" and especially "Life on Mars?" are regarded as classics.
** 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 beloved songs.

* Music/{{Queen}} was regularly panned by music critics during the 1970s, due to their pomp and general goofiness. Then-renowned music critic Dave Marsh even called them [[GodwinsLaw "the first truly fascist rock band."]] After their disco-centric 1982 album ''Hot Space'' flopped, they were more-or-less written off as relics of 70's flamboyance and excess (although they did have a hit song in 1984 with "Radio Ga Ga"). However, their monumental performance at the Live Aid concert in 1985, Freddie Mercury's early death in late 1991 and their 1975 hit "Bohemian Rhapsody" from ''Music/ANightAtTheOpera'' appearing in the popular 1992 comedy Film/WaynesWorld caused a major resurgence in the band's popularity, with many critics seriously reconsidering their prior dismissal of the band. They are now almost unanimously considered to be one of the greatest rock bands of all time.

* {{Music/Suede}}'s second album ''Dog Man Star'' saw a lukewarm reception and so-so sales upon its release, but is nowadays commonly considered to be the band's best.
* Music/TheRamones' first record, ''Music/{{Ramones}}'' peaked on the Billboard charts at #111, and while subsequent releases would fare somewhat better (1980's ''Music/EndOfTheCentury'' made it all the way to #44), none of them would even be remotely considered hits. Only four songs by them entered the Billboard charts, and none of them entered the Top 40. Today, the Ramones are considered one of the most important rock bands of all time for writing a huge chunk of the blueprint for punk rock.

* The opera ''Theatre/{{Carmen}}'' was not a great success when it premiered in Paris, France on March 3, 1875 although the first act was well received as was the beginning of the second, the third and fourth act were greeted with stunned silence. Fortunately however it was well received at the second premiere (this time in Germany) just seven months later; however by that time Music/GeorgesBizet had already died (his death had nothing to do with the failure of the opera). Today Carmen is considered not only one of the world's greatest operas, but also one of the most popular operas ever written.
