I originally posted this in the what are you listening to thread, but its such a nostalgia overload for me that I figured it deserved its own thread. So can we have a musical dissapointment/bands that turned to shit thread?

This was my favourite band when I was a kid, back in 1997. Its a spanish band but they sang in english. They turned to shit after their third album and it really really beaks my heart,

Dover in the 90s


Dover in 2010

John Lydon. He was the singer of the Sex Pistols back in the 70's. The band decried the heavy commercialization of the mid 1970's and tried to be as uncommercial and rebellious as possible (although they were pretty crap to be honest but that's besides the point)

Now he sells fucking butter...

I understand that he did that to get money so that he could go on tour.

Not a band but more a singer. Nate Ruess of fun. was once in a band called The Format that was so much better.

These are two songs from The Format.




Now here's We Are Young by fun.


I still enjoy listening to it, but it's comparatively soulless. While The Format's songs were all about personal lives and romance, while fun.'s just feels like a cash grab for popularity (though a pretty good cash grab) with basic lyrics about people coming together and living in the moment.

Oh, definitely Coldplay. Also, Kanye West, Eminem, Black Eyed Peas (they were really good without Fergie), Linkin Park,... There are especially many hip hop artists who turned to shit and only do overproduced bullshit nowadays.

I had no idea that any of those used to be of quality. Any suggestions to listen to?

Kanye went to shit when he lost his capacity for self-deprication and just became self-aggrandizing. He takes himself way too seriously anymore.

Now he's only good for comedy value.

To me he always seemed to be very cocky, but he was *the* best producer in the business about 5 years ago. He never was a great rapper per se, his producing made his songs great. I don't care about his personal life and if he loves himself too much, to be honest. I just care for the music. And the music became very shitty. But maybe you have a point: Maybe him being self-aggrandizing made him think that singing was a good idea.

I loved Kanye West's last album.
I don't know about Mylo Xyloto, but Viva La Vida was good.
Em's last album was decent, no Marshall Mathers LP, but I liked it.
Linkin Park are now Micheal Bay's bitch. Shame.
Black Eyed Peas are shit now, and they weren't very good before imo.
