Biggest Sellouts of the History of Musica7x,antar

Hail to the king... The king being consumerist America looking for a shallow Pantera rip-off.
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.
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.
She had a couple of original songs that were really good like anything could happen and explosions then released burn which sucks, just seems like less her and more dance song to make loads of money very generic.
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...
The faceless has never sold out what I was shocked to see them on here
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
He rapped with Justin Bieber once. He deserves to be higher.
The true definition of a sell out.
They've made a song with Justin Bieber.
Why the hell are Rammstein on this list? Have you even listened to them?V 1 Comment
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
Muse could have been a band that changed the course of music in the 21st century and uplifted it with their gorgeous mix of classically-inspired piano, experimentation with different instruments and music styles from around the world, chaotic guitar chords, and ambient use of electronic elements supported by the unique vocals of Matthew Bellamy and sophisticated lyrics that touched your soul. That was until the Resistance dropped in 2009, which was preceded by the appearance of one of their songs in 2008 in the movie Twilight. Everything from then on has been the most generic, artificial-sounding parody of themselves that I've ever seen. They've gone from hard rock to the blandest pop since 2009 and it's like they removed all the hard, edgy, experimental elements of themselves. You only have to see their song, "Madness," on an NBA commercial or the song they made for Twilight to see that they've totally sold out. They sold out so brutally that they're selling out stadiums to "new ...more
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
In the beginning, Muse were a 21st-century Radiohead. Then they appeared in Twilight, and it sucked from there on.
Everything about muse is boring. Except the lead singers voice, which makes me want to stick knitting needles in my ears.
Went om being their own unique band to collaborating with Ke$ha and Miley Cyrus.
