YMMV: Little Richard
- Awesome Music
- Ear Worm
- First and Foremost: "Long Tall Sally" was written to deliberately invoke this (it was meant to be a song that white singers wouldn't cover). While it was initially successful, it didn't quite last.
- Older Than They Think: His later career consisted of him playing small clubs and bitching about how he never got his dues for more or less inventing rock n' roll.
- Retroactive Recognition: At one point his band included a then unknown guitarist named Jimi Hendrix, who went on to do quite well after leaving (Richard kicked him out for refusing to wear his uniform).
- Signature Song: "Tutti Frutti".
