In the end, they probably never would have been anything great, but I remember feeling somewhat excited for their 2nd album back in the day.
Leader of Men is actually a pretty decent song off their first album. I didn't believe my friend when he told me that this was the same band responsible for How You Remind Me:

Well then I shall defer to you in your superior knowledge of Nickelback.

I know it was out before they turned into Canadian Creed.

The Black Keys.

I found them at Attack and Release, which I loved, then worked backwards to get to Rubber Factory, which is an all-time favorite record. So good. Then they discovered radio airplay and it was all over. Pop songs, arena-friendly crap. I do take it personally.

Metallica, when "the black album" came out. Hooked up with a new, more mainstream producer and started recording shorter-length, radio-friendly songs.

I'd argue it was Load that changed them. The Black album was still pretty fucking heavy

I sort of felt this way with R.E.M. in the mid '00's. I spent a few years wishing they had called it quits when Berry left...but Accelerate and Collapse Into Now redeemed their career somewhat.

It was heavy, but it wasn't fast. They totally abandoned thrash.

Not to mention that video for Nothing Else Matters where we see them recording the song in the studio, and Hetfield is singing through a fucking microphone screen. Really? The whole thing is too clean.

With Load, clearly they were attempting to court the alternative crowd, with the Anton Corbijn photography and the makeup and the weird video. But they already had an eye on the marketplace with the previous album.

Bands that Changed so Much You Feel Personally Betrayed By Them

It is pretty hilarious if you listen to Dead on Arrival and that Uma Thurman song back to back. Because what the ever loving fuck. And I say this as someone who actually enjoyed up to Folie a Deux.

I expected someone to say The Black Keys, because what did happen to that band. Yikes.

Pretty sure the Dropkick Murphys are the only band whose change I took personally. I'd like to say I didn't, but that's pretty well documented at this point.

Muse. Bellamy's lyrics are so very bad now.

Coldplay. Lyrics not as bad as Muse, but the production is beyond awful. Way too poppy now, and not good pop.

Lady Gaga. Her last album was so bad. But we will always have Bad Romance, which is probably favorite pop song, ever.

When I saw them live, I spent the entire time cringing at nearly everything they did. A music video accompanied one of the new tracks on the video boards of a bunch of "goth" and "punk" teenagers in love. It was really, really pathetic.

Nearly as pathetic as seeing Blink 182 the next night and them playing almost all "new" material and actually skipping major singles from the early years.
