Biggest Sellouts of the History of Musica7x,antar
The Contenders: Page 4
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. - Songsta41V 1 Comment
They made a nice little indie rock song called 'Can't We Dance' but then after that they made stupid boyband sounding pop music. - metaldude8
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 outV 1 Comment
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.
"If You Leave Me Now" made them the second-biggest sellouts of the 1970s.
Why are Oasis not on here!? They were always about the money and desperately tried to emulate the Beatles
They copied the Beatles so for them to be considered a band. Lol.
I don't see how they sold out.
They where punk from beginning to end.
This bloke should be ahead of Metallica. What Metallica did was start making crappy music & sued their fans, but peter garrett went from writing protest songs with an actual, well thought out message to become yet another lying, theiving, useless politican; the very people his songs protested against.
Then: Protest-happy lead singer of Midnight Oil
Now: All for the stuff he protested against
Midnight oil frontman-turned politican. Wrote & sung songs protesting on environmental & political issues, but as a politican completely turned is back on those issues. Most notable of which is his backflip over U.S. bases on foreign soil; his song U.S. forces was in protest, but as a politican he was ok with an american base being built on australian soil.
Wrote songs making fun of sellouts and being hardcore and then... Proceeded to sell out playing pop punk crap. Don't forget your roots laugh out loud
As a fan, I will happily disagree. While Turner's actions are questionable at points, their music is still very good, and isn't too radically different to be considered selling out. Their AM album is slightly too alternative and mellow to be a pop album, and they haven't strayed too far from their initial sound to alienate long time fans. So no, they aren't selling out. They're not Metallica. - Mrveteran
I haven't listened to them in a couple of years, Arctic Monkey first to albums were perfect than I quit. Its like Alex doesn't even bother to make rock n roll anymore! I checked out there new album AM and its rubbish! Some girl on Facebook shared a link to a song of it so I asked her did she like any other album's by them she said she only new the AM album fml...
