Bee Gees have to be included in the conversation. Not dissing them, just stating the obvious.

I don't get the Green Day responses. They sounded pretty much the same on Slappy and Kerplunk! And Dookie wouldn't have been out of place on Lookout Records, their label before going to the majors.
Green Day was the first band that came to mind for me. They were pretty much the same garage band on Dookie as they were on Lookout Records. Then their image changed...wearing makeup, dyed black hair, black leather, adding band members to the original three piece band, leaning towards the big arena sound, going political. It goes on. Don't they even have a Broadway show?
Man I loved all of those three chord love/teen angst songs from their early albums. I guess you can't keep writing those when you're 40.

I remember seeing an interview where Billy Joe said they were considered sell outs by the "hardcore" punk artists.

Coldplay has to top my list. KOL certainly up there as well. Foster the People seem like they may be down a similar path with their new stuff.

I thought of them too, but I don't know enough about their catalog to list when this happened. I know that their recent stuff is nothing like Clocks, Yellow or Speed of Sound.

re: Biggest sell out?
Viva la Vida ('08) was probably their last decent album but it was straddling the line of "sell-out" but Mylo Xyloto ('11) is when they tipped IMO. Parachutes and Rush of Blood
(RoB being one of my favorite albums) are both tremendous.

Should have stopped right there....

It's was Balin's songs that carried them through the 70's

Edit: Can I give Dave Grohl an honorable mention?

Gwen Stefani. I never liked her or No Doubt and hate the song "Just A Girl" with a passion, but you have to admit, she basically turned herself into everything that song was supposedly written in protest of.

It's shocking to listen to the Faces and then anything else Rod Stewart has done. What a complete decline into total crap. 


This was my second thought after Starship. You guys are on it.

Look, you can't blame the liz phairs of the world who spend years making "cutting edge" music, but only make $12.50 an hr doing it. Gotta go for that huge payday at least once, then for some it becomes addictive!

Yes, but at one point every single original member of Airplane had left the band.....so it's not like it was an act of selling out by the originals.

I like that song too, but these music people have to "lose their edge" to pay the bills on ocassion.

Aerosmith after their rehab. They went from great to suck.

Joe Walsh joining The Eagles. He admitted he did it for the money.

The Who Sell Out (joke-great album)

Paul McCartney post 1975. Sorry Paul.

John Lennon duo with Elton John. Sorry John.
