Therefore, they are "sellouts".

The Used didn't sell out. The sound on the new record didn't change because of the popularity of one song on the previous record, or current trends or anything like that, it changed because of events in Bert's life. Whether you like them or not is a different matter, but they did not sell out, nor did the 1,000 other bands people call sell outs these days. Well, except Stars Hide Fire, they are sellouts. LOL

i agree with you completely. how the hell are the used sellouts?

haha tate called them sellouts like 10 times on the end of year reviews. lol

mreh, I have to admit that I don't like In Love and Death very much, but The Used is one of my favorite albums, if not my favorite album ever.

hey there kids. just a comment on the whole "sellout" thing...i think if a band "sells out" in your eyes and it changes your view on them, then you can go die because youre an ass...its really not up to any of us to say if a band plays music for the money, the fans, the love, the drugs, whatever. if you like the music, like it, regardless of what other people say or how much money the band is making, or whether or not they have videos on mtv. dipshits.

^^wtf, why even bother trying to put a band into a cetegory, let alone EMO. god, any music that isnt emo by definition [emotional] is total shit. how bout we just like the music we like, not bc it is or isnt a genre...asses.

STUPID PEOPLE FRUSTRATE ME WHEN IT COMES TO MUSIC.
