People might say that rock died after the britpop music, but this is not the case in my opinion. Remember that group of bands that released albums in the year 2003 and 2004 and they all did incredibly well, their second albums doing just or nearly as good in comparison?
If you don't know what I'm talking about, I'm talking about the Kaiser Cheifs, Snow Patrol, Razorlight, Keane, Maximo Park, Franz Ferdinand and The Editors.
These bands do share something kind of odd, they all did badly on their third album.

Ok, maybe Keane didn't do that badly (same with Snow Patrol) but the bands I just mentioned all seemed to have underwhelming sales on their third release and were released within 6 months.
These where bands they were having top 10 singles a couple having number 1s.
I am new here, so this may have been covered but I really want answers to this?
