But a lot of people prefer that mainstream (creed like) sound. Its not my favorite, but i def like it. And all it really means is how the song is put together. And im sure theres a lot of bands that feel the same way. In my opinion i dont feel thats selling out.

And im not saying you think this, but lota people think that all mainstream is garbage and uncreative all because its popular. Thats absolutely ridiculous. All the indy unpopular non mainstream bands is in the end to make money, and because mainstream music one day.

Any band that could possibly sell out wouldn't have a problem with money for equipment etc.

That is not true. One band we played with a while ago in pittsburgh (called The Sugarbaracks) was gaining a lot of popularity, and had the opportunity to change there sound when there record company asked them to, but chose not to, and shortly broke up because they could fund touring and living anymore.

Also youd be surprised how little most bands make, even the somewhat popular ones. It all goes to the record company and paying for touring.

Use your head. The entire point of what i said, was that it happens ALL THE TIME. I have seen it happen to many bands. Some have chosen the sellout root, other have not, and they usually dont make it very long as a band. And i respect your opinion but you obviously dont have much experience with it first hand, because if you did, youd realize its a common occurance. Money is actually the #2 reason (behind band members disagreeing) of why bands break up.

I"ve been in several abnds, and I'm into several local bands, and no record companies have ever really been turned down on a change of sound demand, followed by a break up because of money. I guess I live in a wealtheir area than Pittsburgh. This is sort of an impossible arguement.

Where do you live, because that just might be the case.

edit: i did not think of that, because what im talking about usually happens in big inner cities like this where its sell records or go outa buisness.

RezZ just stop there's no point to continuing, ProggyMan is being an idiot who's argued this before and lost. He's just wrong.
