YMMV: Janis Joplin
- Covered Up: Three of her biggest hits, "Piece of My Heart", "Cry Baby", and "Me and Bobby Mcgee", were covers. (As was her more modest hit, "Ball and Chain".)
- "Funny Aneurysm" Moment: Her final recording was "Mercedes Benz" on October 1st, 1970, three days before she died, which means the last words she ever said on record were "That's it!"
- Signature Song: Piece of My Heart or Me and Bobby McGee
- Tearjerker: "The drinks are on Pearl"
- The Woobie: Janis had to deal with years of bullying over her looks and a fiance who cheated on her with her friend after their wake, facts that led to her overdosing not once, but several times before it became fatal.
