    It's hard for me to say that they sold out considering I only started listening to them when they were played on MTV (Sing the Sorrow, I couldn't get enough of "The Leaving Song Pt 2" after the first time I heard it.) I actually enjoy Decemberunderground, never got too into Crash Love, although the music wasn't bad...and probably a year before Decemberunderground came out, I started listening to AFI's previous albums and got really into them. I guess I can understand if people think they sold out, but I like almost all of their music so it doesn't really matter to me if they sold out or not.

    As far as Green Day goes, I'm just curious as to what point in their career they were considered a sellout. Was it when they released American Idiot? ...or maybe Nimrod (with "Good Riddance") ...or maybe even when Dookie was released?

    for people who consider them as such, probably Dookie and pre-dookie leading up to it.

    This book was a great read and covered a good amount of the before and after..

    Here is a question:

    How many of us have "sold out" as fans? How many of us now listen to, or accept as "cool", music that our younger selves would have rejected?

    For myself I know I now listen to stuff from time to time that my younger self would have hated and would have thought sucked. But I don't think that I sold out, I just allowed myself to like other types of music. Don't get me wrong, there is still plenty of stuff that I still think sucks like I did when I was younger, but I came to point when I realized that I was becoming a "harder-core-than-thou" guy and thought "why limit myself?" Why hate a band or type of music simply because it is not in a certain genre? Give it chance. And sure, a lot of music I still hate, but for some other music I found it was not as horrible as I once thought.

    We were talking about this at work the other day, though the conversation focused on Metallica and Black-Eyed Peas specifically.
    I also would submit The Knack and Sugar Ray. ha

    I remember Adam and the Ants used to be the most cool, obscure, underground band ever. All the hardcore punkers were into their early singles, then suddenly they did the pirate thing then Adam went solo and completely turned commercial. I pity those early punkers with Adam Ant tattoos.

    I agree about Kiss, it was the first band I thought of but they NEVER had any integrity so they couldn't sell out.
