    Pantera: They were a hair-metal band who wore makeup and dressed like women but tried to escape their past and became a "Macho Man Band" .

    Metallica: They were macho, they were the biggest enemies of hair metal, they were an old school cult band. One day they got tired of it and became "modern" , that's when they cut their hair, did makeup and painted their nails. They were trying to sound like Heavy Metal U2, but if all this wasn't bad enough the worst was yet to come, one day they called Lou Reed for a project and tried to reinvent themselves as a "cool band".

    Rage Against the Machine : They were communists protesting against the bourgeoisie and saying that Cuba is heaven on earth. One day they got tired of this ****, that's when they put Chris Cornell on vocals and started playing pop-rock to get their spot on the radio and make more money.

    Green Day : They were punks, sang about marijuana and masturbation, until one day something called emo fashion came along and these punks had to adapt to the new fashion to stand out and sell their albums, that's when they started wearing makeup and singing about Jesus of Suburbia and the pain of the cuckold.

    Red Hot Chili Peppers: They played funk and they were wild but then they got tired of it and started being good pop-rock boys.

    The Goo Goo Dolls started out as essentially a punk band and morphed into Adult Contemporary.

    One could make the case that RUSH's embracing of synths and New Wave sensibilities in the 80s constituted a "dramatic change", though in many ways it was a somewhat gradual shift.

    Started off as a rock 'n' roll covers band and then did, well, everything!

    First time I ever heard of them was off some horror movie soundtrack on Metal Blade records. I’m thinking a Nightmare on Elm Street soundtrack. Was very confused later when I heard chicks talking about them from the radio.

    Black Sabbath. They’ve had so many members over the years that at times I swear my mom and my cat were part of the group.

    I imagine anyone listening to Tommy in 1969, and then seeing The Who in concert on their tours supporting it in 1969 and 1970, thought that they had changed dramatically.

    Who, in 1965, could have predicted what the future held?

    Has to be Scott Walker. From "The Sun Ain't Gonna Shine Anymore" to "SDSS1416+13B (Zercon, A Flagpole Sitter)" is quite a leap in direction.
