!!The [[Music/{{Journey}} band]]:
* TroubledProduction - The shoot for the much-derided video for "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LatorN4P9aA Separate Ways]]" ran into this, which partly contributed to its negative reputation. Leaving aside the band's qualms about moving from {{performance video}}s to {{concept video}}s and, to borrow the producer's own words, the "inane" premise of the woman in the video dreaming about the band playing ''imaginary'' instruments, they had been instructed not to bring their wives or girlfriends to the two-day shoot (which also produced the "Chain Reaction" video). Steve Perry, who had recently had his familiar long hair cut short, apparently forgot about or ignored this rule and brought his then-girlfriend [[YokoOhNo Sherrie Swafford]], whom the other band members hated. Swafford was furious at the presence of the model playing the woman in the video, calling her a "slut" and "whore" during arguments with Perry in his trailer - to which he had to retreat regularly to escape the unseasonably cool breeze blowing in off the Mississippi River. The unpleasant experience of shooting the video and its poor reception prompted the band to refuse to shoot ''any'' videos for their next album, ''Raised on Radio''.
* BreakthroughHit: The album ''Infinity'' and single "Wheel in the Sky", featuring the debut of Steve Perry.
* ThePeteBest: Robert Fleischmann, Journey's frontman and lead vocalist briefly in 1977. He wrote "Wheel in the Sky", and a few others, but he didn't last.

!!The [[VideoGame/{{Journey}} video game]]:
* Austin Wintory has a complete score of the game with running commentary and gorgeous fanart [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qGcXI_BaR2Y here]].
* WhatCouldHaveBeen: The setting was originally a large canyon, where a glowing split in the rock could be seen in the far distance, as opposed to a split-peaked mountain. And the protagonist's early design resembled some type of samurai, as was shown in a few early teasers for the game. Also, the penultimate chapter was originally going to have you [[spoiler: being beaten to a pulp by the Guardians before finally dying. It was tossed on the grounds of being too over the top]].
