You confirmed in Twitter that you are a true Belieber. This is for the rest of us. But If you want to go ahead reading, be my guest. I won't bite you, metaphorically of literally speaking. Mrs. Amanda Bibier, have you ever heard about the Sex Pistols? I'm sure you didn't. And yes, the never won a single award. Never. They even have in the late Sid Vicious the dubious honor of having the worst bassist ever. Somehow, in spite of ther shortcomings and their lack of quality they managed to change the history of rock by rescueing it from being too safe for the masses.
You may laugh if you learn the fact that the only Rolling Stones album that sold more than 10 million copies is Hot Rocks, a compilation of their hits of the sixties. For all the buzz and admiration they still generate, they have never been best sellers that much. Nevertheless, they have scored a huge amount of songs that shaped rock n' roll, they were truly The Biggest Rock n' Roll Band on Earth and set the template for many badass rock bands to come.
Amanda, you surely can give squat to all the things former Beatle George Harrison achieved, but you may also find hilarious that even him got dumped from his record label when the execs deemed him a loser. The next album he scored another number one for his long list of achievements, but he suffered the humiliation anyway.
The fact is that if Kurt Cobain were alive, he wouldn't care less for Twitter accounts or blogging, like his widow does. But with his band Nirvana, he launched the last rock revolution of history, before it melted into irrelevant pap. With that revolution, he managed to kill hair metal by kicking it squarely in the nuts. He helped replace it with something more clever and ambitious. Then he couldn't handle it anymore and decided to kill himself. That said Amanda, you may realize that all those rock giants had their fair share of failures and embarrassments. But if given the choice, I would always chose the influential Ramones, that never sold well but influenced big than the Bibier path, that only consists of selling a gazillion records and nothing else. Hey, even the Ramones had groupies!
See the difference now? No, I'm not asking if you care, only if you see the difference, Amanda. And have a nice day.
