* The two guys from Music/FallOutBoy who aren't Pete Wentz and Patrick Stump.
* Music/ThePolice, AKA Sting and Those Two Guys.
* Perhaps the ur-example of music is Jeff Ament and Stone Gossard of Music/PearlJam. They've been in at least four bands together and have always played this role.
* The three guys from Music/{{Aerosmith}} that aren't Steven Tyler or Joe Perry. They're even jokingly called the ''Less Interesting Three'' among the band and fanbase.
* An interesting case: Music/SteelyDan, in the early days, had as members Michael [=McDonald=] and Jeff "Skunk" Baxter, who went on to become known for being in The DoobieBrothers. The two central members, Donald Fagen and Walter Becker, who wrote pretty much everything, and ended up being the only members, became the FaceOfTheBand, and ''only known'' for SteelyDan. People actually forget sometimes [=McDonald=] and Baxter were in it, too.
** Far more egregious is Denny Dias who was the band leader before Becker and Fagen joined.
* Music/{{Megadeth}} is those two guys Dave Mustaine and Dave Ellefson, plus whoever else Mustaine has hired. There were a few years where Dave Ellefson wasn't in the band, but he's back again, so it counts.
* The two guys from Music/RageAgainstTheMachine who aren't Zack de la Rocha or Tom Morello. This did not change when they formed Music/{{Audioslave}} with Morello and Chris Cornell.
* [[Music/TheLonelyIsland We're just two guys who are having a good time, having a good time, having a good time...]]
** It gets better. Their actual names are "Guy Number One" and "Guy Number Two".
* The two guys in the Music/BlackEyedPeas who aren't Fergie and will.i.am.
** Averted in that Taboo and apl.de.ap are still quite recognizable.
* Mike Rutherford and Tony Banks when Music/{{Genesis}} was a Phil Collins-fronted trio.
* David Gamson and Fred Maher did not receive the same attention as Green Gartside of Music/ScrittiPolitti.
* {{Ascended Meme}}s [[BrokenBird Haku]] [[DrowningMySorrows Yowane]] and [[{{Tsundere}} Neru]] [[{{Troll}} Akita]] from Music/{{Vocaloid}} are often portrayed as this in fanon.
* In Music/BlackSabbath, we have [[CloudCuckooLander Ozzy]] [[CrazyAwesome Osbourne]], [[{{Determinator}} Tony]] [[HandicappedBadass Iommi]], and... the [[DumbAndDrummer other]] [[NobodyLovesTheBassist two]]. Also counts for the [[LoadsAndLoadsOfCharacters other temporary members]] nobody remembers, outside of Music/RonnieJamesDio.
* In Music/JimiHendrix's ''Live At Woodstock'', the extra guitarist and two extra percussionists are this, due to the remastering rendering them virtually inaudible.
* ''Anyone'' in {{OFWGKTA}} whose first name isn't Tyler, Wolf, Frank, or Earl.
* {{Paramore}} has become this recently: Hayley Williams and those two guys.
* Music/MaroonFive: Is basically Creator/AdamLevine and those ''four'' guys nice.
* Music/{{Rush}} is an interesting inversion: It's [[BadassBookworm Neil Peart]], [[LeadBassist Geddy Lee]], and the blonde guy that plays the guitar. Poor, poor Alex. Of note is that if this were any other band Alex Lifeson would be the standout among Those Other Guys; Alex is very talented in his own right, but the poor guy is overshadowed by Geddy's vocals and front-row bass and Neil's drumming and lyrics.
* To all but diehard fans of Music/PinkFloyd, the classic lineup is Roger Waters, David Gilmour...and the drummer and keyboardist (Nick Mason and Richard Wright, respectively). During the band's early psychedelic period, Pink Floyd was Syd Barrett and those three other guys (Mason and Wright again, along with Waters, who at this point was [[NobodyLovesTheBassist just the bassist]]), and in the much later "dehydrated" ([[Main/{{Pun}} no Waters]]) lineup, Floyd was Gilmour...and those [[RuleOfThree two guys playing drums and keyboard]]. Yeah, no matter who is the face of Pink Floyd, Mason and Wright always end up as ThoseTwoGuys.
