Have any of you people wondered how the hell did that band/artist get famous? If you have then tell me, or just post it if your wondering it now. (I bet a lot of you are going to say the Jonas Brothers)

Gorillaz. Seriously, those guys are 2D, how do they hold the instruments?

Your favorite band.
Then there's this band called Slice The Cake...

Bunch of faggots putting random riffs together and calling it "progressive" deathcore.
Stupid name.
Probably picked "for teh lulz"

It's actually pretty easy to understand how groups like the Jonas Brothers got famous. They're targetting a huge audience and they have Disney on their side, ffs.

Dream Theater.


Course they'll get famous. There's enough pretentious arseholes out there who need a band "more technical than your band". Even if it sounds crap and is smug as it gets, they'll be happy at least.

I'm sure there's 10 or 20 Dream Theater fans who do not fit this mould and are actually innately capable of dancing to, remembering and enjoying their music. To this minority I am deeply sorry.

Soulja Boy. Oh lawd, Soulja Boy. I wish I could make horrible, repetitive music and get millions with it.

The Ting Tings ... it's just ... *sobs* how?


This.
Look up the lead singer on wikipedia, it actually cites 'bass drum' as one of her instruments. Not drums or drum kit. Bass drum.

In History lessons at school people look at how Hitler became leader of Germany and go on to commit horrible atrocities.

I believe in 50 years' time, history lessons will look at how Scouting For Girls became popular.

Dream theater isn't "hey, we're more technical than you" like dragonforce.


Dream Theater just rocks. The Mirror isn't a technically amazing song, but it owns. or do you just not like musicians with actual skill? More awesome, but not overly-technical, songs:

6:00
lifting shadows off a dream
Scarred
raise the knife (as far as i remember)
repentance
prophets of war
forsaken
overture 1928 (not too much, anyways)
strange deja vu
the spirit caries on


to name a few. gtfo.

I don't really see how the Misfits got big. I like some of their songs, but they get repetitive after a while, and they have some really shit albums in terms of production and playing (Earth AD, Evilive).

And Gogol Bordello. They're so weird I don't see how they ever got a deal.
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.

I know how bands that I hate get famous.

1. Big, wealthy record labels that push them into the light.

2. Other people's opinions.

That doesn't leave much room for misunderstanding, does it?
