if disney offered you $1,000,000 dollars and a label to make a pop album would you do it

I personally would for the publicity then openly admit to hating pop and using the fame to make music i like

I also might slowly change from pop to a more grungy style of music, most of the people who listen to pop only do it cause its popular that way i will have sneakaly made grunge common again


so ya i'd sell out but grunge isn't generally very high in character. what about you guys?

Yes, then in a concert in California, in the middle of the show, I would turn off the music and the lights. Then re-enter with blast of fire and start a cover of Amon Amarth with my real band and continue with our original tracks. Maybe even have a few people in the audience start a Disney Mosh pit.

I know.
Which is why i don't have to worry about ever working for Disney.
#20
Uh yea.
Already have, just not a million dollar extent.
I've funded my gear acquisitions by writing pop/acoustics songs, and re arranging other bands songs for them to use in the studio.

It's jokingly easy, and just as easy to be succesfull in if there's anything at all unique about you.

I use a lot of non open position but still easy chords in writing pop songs, so lame artists that cant write their own can still play them and feel like they sound cool.

It's payed for gas, insurance, my dozen guitars, several vintage amps, and a couple of synths in just a few years.


The way I see it, selling out is like commission work, or getting a promotion.

to the people who are saying no: just think of it as a day job. would you rather try to make that million flipping hamburgers? or playing it as a real but nameless band one show at a time? that would take forever.

Like that would happen.

To all of you people who said yes, have you ever heard any Disney music? Sure, I don't go out and buy the CD's, but it's pretty unavoidable to hear clips of it, enough. It's a discrase!

Not with disney, I still said yes to the poll, but I would make a more mainstream rock CD for a major record label like roadrunner or WB if it meant I could play music for the rest of my life rather than just stay on the club circuit and have an actual job to supplement income.
#26
Heck yeah. It's nothing about principles, music is a job. It is saddening that you find yourselves above that kind of work.

Have fun being poor and "tr00."
#29
Never. You can make a living in the music industry without signing to a major label.

Yes, but not as much as if you were signed to the extent Disney tools are.

Of course I would sell out.

Of course not, but I don't need/want that much.

Plus I wouldn't like being in the public eye like that, and I wouldn't want to betray my scene. I know what it's like to see bands that I love achieve national recognition and fame, to a point where I feel uncomfortable at their shows. I wouldn't want to do that to the people that supported me in my scene. I know a lot of you won't understand this, but when you listen to the music that I do you see major labels differently. I wouldn't want somebody controlling my music, and feeling disconnected from the fans on stage. There's a huge difference in playing a show to 50 kids and playing a show to 50,000 kids. I'd prefer playing to 50 kids and not making a lot of money than playing to 50,000 and being rich.
