My point was that if you really do want to keep making music with Punchline, you can do so even if you don't hit number 1 on itunes (even if you probably couldn't if the songs don't sell anything). Its a false dichotomy and it seems wrong to abuse it.
But you've obviously made up your mind about this. So even though I don't necessarily agree with the move I'll still wish you best of luck. Hopefully for your sake you'll hit number one without alienating much of your current fan base =) Given the response of a lot of the people on this thread, your fans seem fairly supportive so you probably have nothing to worry about
People like you make me want to bash my head off a wall. You are actually trying to have a debate on what he should do? Who gives a fuck! He's his own man he's a big boy he can make any good or bad decision he wants. He could come out with a fucking autotune record if he wanted to. For as long as I live I'll never understand the people on this planet. If any band deserves to be number 1 it's them.
