It's really sad, if they are.

I mean, you can listen to Silver Side Up (a pretty hard alternative metal/post grunge mix) and the their newest album, All the Right Reasons (which markets to a more pop-influenced audience), and it makes you think...

Also, there's something about them that seems kinda phoney. Not sure what, but something's there...

I like them...I don't see why people moan about bands "selling out", you can't deny a band success and I still think they write good songs. So what if they've changed? You'd all moan if they produced lots of records that all sounded the same...

They sorta sold out after The State (2nd album) because that and curb were both heavy grunge albums, then they got all polished and well-produced. Silver Side Up and Curb both have a version of Just Four/Just For, and you can really hear a difference.

Still, I continued to listen to them until All the Right Reasons because they retained some credibility and integrity. After all, the Long Road was a ****ing good album.
I play by my own rules. And I have one rule; There are no rules... but if there are, they're there to be broken. Even this one.


Confused? Good.

Alright, I'll give them a try, Japanese Black Speed rarely disappoints.

Hmm judging from your pic you'd fit in more with a fat busted tribute.

all of their hit songs are exactly the same, they right music just to make money, yada yada yada, don't know if i'd call them sell outs, they're just a mainstream rock band

Proof they are selling out in 3 words:

"If Everyone Cared"

Wimpiest song they have ever put out (if not in a tie with "Far Away")

How is selling out related in any way to being wimpy??!

I don't care much for the band, but i don't think they're selling out.

Its related to selling out because they used to be a pretty hard post-grunge band, and now they're writing bad ballads about world peace.

They have always sucked and written poppy songs.
