These guys practically sold themselves to Coles. Did you know they're coming out with a new album? It's only allowed to be sold at COLES.V1 Comment
I lost my respect for him after hearing "Baby"...you must have no dignity, if you agree to do that
They never sold-out, they always stuck to their roots, in fact Led Zeppelin 4's album cover without text was considered a way of making less money, they never sold out.
How did Zeppelin sell out? They were only around for 12 years and all none of their albums were aimed for money only.
I think I'd rather see Zep tour without Robert Plant than hear "Rock and Roll" in a Cadillac ad. At least they could have picked a cool car by a company that isn't about to go belly up. - a7x,antar
I'm sorry, THAT is why you think they sold out? One commercial does not make a band a sellout, and they never became a sellout band in the first place. - Songsta41V1 Comment
Fanbase: "I love BMTH!... What the heck is Count Your Blessings? "
Started as a thrash band much like Metallica. They are not as popular as Metallica, nor were they as good in the first place, but I can tell you they sold out much worse. Their 80's stuff is respectable thrash metal music made in a very unique, comical style. In the 90's they fired their singer, hired a new one and started making music that didn't sound like Anthrax at all and was intended for solely making money. Fortunately they failed to sell out and eventually had to bring back their original singer. They started making quite good music again that sounded more like their 80's stuff but are now old men way past their prime. Basically they destroyed their own career by selling out. Should be higher than Metallica and Metallica does not belong even to top 10.
Why did they go to songs like Paralyzer? Seriously, if you do hate them for that overplayed song, look back on their older stuff like the songs on The Greyest of Blue Skies album, you'll find out how good they were. Unfortunately, that's not what they sound like now. I wish they would go back. - NuMetalManiak
Listen to drag you down ten paralizer back to back, trust me you'll understand how big of a sellout they are
Sex on fire. Hate it hate most of there stuff since. sellouts
After their self titled album, they became too mainstream
I don't understand how she is never on these lists. She is a blatant sellout. She completely changed her style of music to try and fit in with the mainstream.
Can't believe she isn't number one. No Doubt were a great band, and she threw it all away to sing about "B-A-N-A-N-A-S" and prance around with Harajuku girls... I could rant for days about what a sell-out and disappointment she is.
If you take a look at his resume of advertising accomplishments you would put him in the top ten
Did anyone else hear about his country career?
Anarchicist punk band turns radio friendly and becomes one with what they used to fight against.
Nah they didn't sell out. They are still a rock band (i mean, have you heard weight of love? ) but just make a different style of rock. It's less blues now and more indie mixed with Pink Floyd.
Such potential! So popular! Then they decided it would be a good idea to abandon all the things that made them popular and become a generic pop band.
I agree that they sold out and their general sound used to be much better, but I like a greater percentage of their newer songs than older ones. - Songsta41V1 Comment
Stepbrothers references this as there is a band called "uptown girl, southern California's preeminent 80s joel cover band" he's a running joke. We didn't start the fire was offensively bad, whereas you have genius like piano man, AND NO ONE TALKS ABOUT THIS.
Cold Spring Harbor through Glass Houses: A pianist who really ruled the 1970s.
Post-Glass Houses: "Pressure", "Uptown Girl", the Christine Brinkley thing, The Bridge, the concert in Russia, "We Didn't Start the Fire", and he never released an album since 1993.
80s Joel was the most Benine, generic music you've ever heard, as opposed to his artistry in the 70s.
First album is the best
Gerard recorded a song with Deadmau5. Need I say more?
According to my friend, before they started making emo music, they had a nice metal/punk edge.
Gerard Way is the definition of a sell outV1 Comment
Their second album is the definition of sophomore slump.
