The single most annoying comeback on the forum, and seems to pop up almost constantly when a big band takes a slagging. I have never, ever gone off a band because they became more popular. It often happens that as bands progress they change style or write rubbish albums, and people who liked them go off them - look at The Strokes. They have been getting gradually worse since day one, and this opinion has nothing at all to do with their popularity. If they were still writing the brilliant pop songs they are famous because of, I'd be going to see them in the arenas along with everyone else. Why should people assume this change of opinion is about anything other than music? Do you know anyone who would actually change their opinion of a band simply based on their popularity? It's a completely retarded comment.
