Nope.

It's not 1985 anymore.

But the indie purist who loves the band must be in hell right now.

That makes me happy.

We'll be seeing lots of White Stripes CD's in the used bin.

Wait there are indie purist who still love the band? I thought they all discarded them after Fell in Love With a Girl was played on MTV and became a big hit or after Seven Nation Army? I think the "indie purist" who still likes the White Stripes is not an indie purist. This whole idea of an indie purist is much like the idea of indie. Impossible to define and probably doesn't exist in the manner many think.

Agreed. MrBrau1 is every bit as much the snob as the people he despises.

Yeah right...
Generally, I don't have a problem with an artist "selling out". But...if you're gonna do something that's gonna get you the label of being a sellout...don't give us some hokey reason. At least when Ryan Adams did the Gap ad, he said straight up that he did it because Willie Nelson asked him to...and because of the $30,000.

That's exactly the way I feel about the situation, too. I don't have a problem with it, but to the people that do, don't justify your actions with some lame reasoning... and that's cool about Ryan Adams. I didn't know that. Mucho respect for just telling it like it is

So hating music snobs, means you are a music snob?

I hate neo Nazis as well. Does that mean I am one?

Stop it with your logic, you Nazis bastard.

That's an irrelevant example to bring up.

Thinking your taste better than someone else's = music snob.

You can't apply that to neo-Nazism.

I think it's worth being a music snob if it means having better taste then everyone else.

Yep, definitely worth it.
