I can't point to specific examples in pop music 
(my musical tastes hit the wall at about
1827) but I seem to recall tales of phenomenally popular
acts that are hyped to the stratosphere, yet their
CDs *stay* on the loading docks if the hype diverges
from the reality of public taste.  There's no doubt
that the "SOAP-RPC as the grand unification of DCOM and
CORBA" paradigm looks like a monster hit from the early
orders, but it has to actually WORK in order to stay
on the charts.
