They never sold out. If you mean instrumental sounding album"in ultra", I still don't get it. If Kurt was still alive I know they would be one of the top five best rock bands in this generation. Getting bands like Linkin Park, Avenged Sevenfold and Green Day packing - RustyNail

They didn't have time to sell out. - BeatlesFan1964

Since When Has Nirvana Sold Out? - FettiMC

Is this a joke?

I don't think anyone can sell out two nights of Wembley and a huge ultra mega concert with a combined total of people of around 107,000 people in all the concerts. With more people still wanting to go.

They sold out with Bicycle Race and Fat Bottomed Girls

85 Mika Mika

Korn was great back then, but now they're just a joke that's not funny. Like, at all.

Korn is forever ruined. Ruined... I'm gonna go cry in the corner now.

Do people think Slipknot sold out because Corey Taylor was lead singer of Stone Sour? No. He didn't do Stone Sour just to make money, he did it because it's something that he wanted to do. He wanted to try something new. Something for fun and creativity. He wasn't selling out.

93 Busta Rhymes Busta Rhymes Trevor George Smith, Jr., better known by his stage name Busta Rhymes, is an American hip hop recording artist, actor, record producer and record executive.

This is not my opinion it's the truth. He started rapping with the worst artists (like Lil Wayne, Nicki Minaj, and Chris Brown) just to become relevant again.

He did a song with mariah carey, enough said - RnBLover
