On the music side you have Beatlemaniacs and Deadheads...
Let's not leave out the Transformers fans; you think Orci and Kurtzman are catching from ST fans, that's nothing compared to what they went through with the Transformers fanbase. Robotech fans (aka protoculture addicts) that are nice and rabid at times (and talk about canons fights, pbbft you've not seen nothing yet), The Gundam Fanbase...the list goes on and on. Rabid fans is nothing new, kind of in the job description.
