Biggest Sellouts of the History of Musica7x,antar
The Contenders: Page 4
After their self titled album, they became too mainstream
"If You Leave Me Now" made them the second-biggest sellouts of the 1970s.
Margaritaville Restaurants, Margaritaville Hotels, Margaritaville Tequila, even Margaritaville Casinos.
Easily #1 on the list. Biggest sellout of all time
No Doubt didn't sell out, Gwen Stefani on the other hand... - Gruunge
They tried to sell outt all through their career. Lots of album singles werent even played live. Examples: subterranean jungle and mostly end of the century were sell out albums in my opinion.
I don't see how they sold out.
They where punk from beginning to end.
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.
When did they sell out?
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. - Songsta41
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?
i love it
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. - Songsta41
From pure blues rock to utter crap
They preach this work ethic of only using heavy guitar riffs and hating chords and having just the two of them, what happened?
How could anyone forget them? Apparently they had a grunge sound at the beginning, and then decided to go all radio-friendly with the latter of their albums
They were never good
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
They are an amazing band, but the only reason that they are so good is because they sold out. Their 80's albums were pure punk, because that was popular at the time. Then in 1991 when grunge became popular, they released Blood Sugar Sex Magik, a grunge album. Then, in 1995, music was going in a more alternative direction, so they released One Hot Minute, which was somewhere along the lines of grunge and alternative. Then, in 1999, they released Californication, when alternative became dominant, and it was an alternative album. Alternative has been popular for a while now, and it still was when they released albums in 2002, 2006, and 2011. Alternative still is rather popular, but it has lost its fame to pop. I'm afraid that this band is now going to make a pop album. Even though following the trend makes them sellouts, if they didn't, they would not be as good as they are today. Thank you Red Hot Chili Peppers for selling out. - Songsta41
Get ready for extreme disappointment, but he just recently recorded a song with Gucci Mane two years ago.
Made a song with Miley Cyrus. That's all I've gotta say.
