: out, ESPECIALLY in music. Look at the Offspring. They went from Ignition, which fucking rocked, to bubblegum bullshit Fly for a white guy. This is not being popular, this is SELLING OUT. They left Epitaph for sony becuase of the paycheck.
So anybody who's ever negotiated a contract with more than one company is a sell out? You're making your opposing side's argument for them when you say things like that, because that's exactly what people are saying is silly for you to think.
: Then there are Bands like Bad Religion who's fan base steadily increases as they reach more people, not through commercially acceptable songs but by sending a message and staying true to their roots. This is being popular.
: I used to like the Offspring, now I don't...but I will always love Bad Religion.
SO you follow Epitath blindly, then? Or is it just that jump from 'indie label' to just 'label' that you object to?
Was Cameron Crowe selling out by making "Almost Famous"?
