Me and my two friends started a silly little band, we played Taylor Swift songs, I brought some David Bazan stuff, it was all fun and games.

Me and the girl who sings got a good thing going, I really only played in the band to spend more time with this girl, and now her dad is getting involved with the band because he has good connections (recording deals, gigs, ect.) and he's really pushing towards us getting big.

I'm a metal head/ indie songwriter, I don't want a Disney band career, I just thought this was all for fun. But if I back down things will be tense around between me and my friends, and the girl's dad will give me a bad wrap because if I leave the band is done.

WTF do I do?

this.

also, just do it. if you ever have a shot "making it" as a musician, this is it. you may never ever get that kind of chance again. and then millions of girls will love you.
There's no such thing; there never was. Where I am going you cannot follow me now.

No. Continue with the project. Grow huge. Be regarded by the readers of this site as "pieces of collected shit that makes music". Then pursue a solo career that blows the world away with metal masterpieriffces.

Just because her dad has connections doesn't mean it'll turn into some sort of "Jonas Brothers" thing. But do what you want.

Its an oppurtunity, take it. Even if its not your style, its a financial miracle. Its a music bussiness, you play for just that... business. The music industry isnt so forgiving, nor big on second chances. Besides, if you get in and establish connections yourself and meet around, youll eventually be able to follow your own personal aspirations. Depends on what drives you, some are in it for the money, some for the women, some for fame, and even a very few are in just for the love of music.

If it was fun before he started getting involved, why can't it still be fun afterwards?

Alternatively, start writing more indy stuff and bring it to the band to play.

get rich

and then sit at home writting indie/metal songs?

sounds obvious to me


This should be a total No-brainer.

TS Why you're even asking the pit at UG. If you should stick with a band that looks like it very likely could be a commercial success.

It could make your reputation as a musician.

Who knows you might even end up in indie or metal band at some point...

It sounds like you're only playing covers. Say you want to start composing your own songs, and bring in your indie influences? Also, does he really have connections?

Get famous for being on Disney then after a year or two go solo and write your own Metal-stuff and not be taken seriously because you were on Disney. The commit seppuku.

Carry it on. Just do it. Then as others have said, get famous and do it your own way after quitting. That is if you get popular enough... maybe you need to get known for some "antics" or something to get people to sheep up to you. Or you know, just stay in the band. Taylor Swift isn't the most disneyest? band out there. I haven't heard an awful lot of her stuff, but she seems a decent songwriter. Just do it .
This will start a RIOT! in me
