    bee-gee's, disco, really guys

    The Moody Blues. ask Mike Pinder.

    The Rolling Stones. Goats' Head Soup? Really?

    Pink Floyd see the differences between Ummagumma, Atom Heart Mother and Meddle then compare them to Dark Side of the Moon and everything afterwards.

    Fleetwood Mac. Green Monalisi to Tusk. nuff said.


    Jefferson Airplane Jefferson Starship , Starship. "we built this city on rock and roll from white rabbit? Oh Kaaayyy.

    I think you have to make a distinction between progression and selling out....by some of these standards some would probably include the Beatles and use Abbey Road as an example of them selling out as opposed to the early years.

    I never cared for them so they didn't make my cut.

    You really think Pink Floyd sold out with Dark Side of the Moon? In what way? I guess I may not understand what constitutes selling out, but I find Pink Floyd's discography to represent progression, not selling out.

    The only thing Metallica has sold out is arenas and music festivals.

    This is what happened to Metallica (and apparently The Offspring): Bob Rock - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    Once Bob Rock got involved (after "Justice"), Metallica became very uninventive and mainstream.

    As reluctant as I am to quote Wikipedia: "A petition that some 1,500 fans signed was posted online.[4] The petition called for Metallica to dump Rock as producer, claiming he had too much influence on the band's sound and musical format. Rock claimed the petition was hurtful for his children.[4] He was also quoted saying "Sometimes, even with a great coach, a team keeps losing. You have to get new blood in there.

    After Gwen Stefani (and now Pete Townsend and Roger Daltry), I consider Metallica the standard bearers for the term "sellout".

    They didn't sell out. They bought in.
