You can't be a sellout when the whole point of your band was to blowup by making shitty/trendy music in the first place. The sell out label fits Rise Against way better. That's a band that was actually very good at one point and then turned into shit by making radio rock albums.
Ah. You're one of those people who think they're cool because they don't listen to that "Generic shit" and listens to "Underground". It's okay you'll grow up eventually. And about selling out, So I'm guessing no band wants to make money right? No band wants to get big and actually have a lot of people going to their shows and buying their albums right? When I meant selling out, I meant by basically forgetting about your "root" albums if you will and just focusing and relying on the albums/songs that get radio airplay. Its fine to be successful. I'd be extremely happy and proud if I was them. But don't forget about the songs, the albums, and the fans who got you this far by playing all the radio airplay songs. This also can go for Rise Against as well.
