101 Heart Heart Heart is an American rock band that first found success in Canada and later in the United States and worldwide.

Back in the Dreamboat Annie and Little Queen days, Heart was a great hard-rock band with a solid catalog. Then in the mid-1980s, they signed to Capitol Records and released crap like "These Dreams".

Their pop career wasn't exactly great. - Swellow

102 Happy Mondays

Back in 1987, they were new to the Madchester scene. They had talent. They had promise. They were on Factory Records. Then came 1992, and they decided to record their worst album, Yes Please!, in Barbados and blow so much on drugs that it bankrupted the label.

103 The Beastie Boys The Beastie Boys The Beastie Boys are an American Rap/Rock group that was formed in 1981 by its three original members, Michael "Mike D" Diamond, Adam "Ad-Rock" Horovitz, and Adam "MCA" Yauch.

Went from punk to hip-hop. In my opinion the biggest sellouts in music

104 Red Rockers

Once upon a time (1981), this New Orleans group was a great punk act. But then came 1983, and someone told them to go New Romantic, switch to the same label that had Wire Train, and drop the punk side. Hence, "China".

What's an over-the-hill prince of darkness to do once he's no longer selling records? Plug cell phones and video games. I'm sure Sharon made him do it. She has a lifestyle to maintain, ya know? - a7x,antar

Up until the Resistance, they were pure rock, with a hint of pop. In the Resistance, they had a few classical songs, which is the farthest thing from selling out. I still call them a sellout band because of their most recent album, The 2nd Law. It has a lot of dance/electro and more pop than ever. This is not the Muse I know and not the Muse I like. - Songsta41

Everything about muse is boring. Except the lead singers voice, which makes me want to stick knitting needles in my ears.

In the beginning, Muse were a 21st-century Radiohead. Then they appeared in Twilight, and it sucked from there on.
