Mrs. Salami and I were talking about this the other day. What band or artists would you include in your top 10 sellouts. By "sellout", I mean a band or artist who dramatically changed their musical style, effectively leaving behind a small, or at least loyal, fanbase, in order to gain popularity and make money. My first few are:
Metallica (Thank you Bob Rock)
Gwen Stefani (Loved No Doubt's first album)
The Offspring (yea-a hah ha hah)
Green Day (Uber pop)
Eddie Vedder (force the vibrato a bit there fella?)
AFI (If you were a fan of their first 3 albums, you likely weren't a fan of the 4th)
Who else belongs on this list?
