Episode 125 - Selling Out?!: Artistic Creativity or Making a Profit?

In Episode 125, Keith and Justin sit down to discuss the concept of "selling out." The guys talk about some of their favorite bands over the years (such as Linkin Park, Paramore, Panic!, Emery, and more) to question whether they've "sold out," or just taken a new musical direction. Do bands shift sounds because of money or for artistic reasons? What's it like to rediscover an album that you once hated? What does it mean to be a selfish fan vs. a self-conscious one? And how do the ways we treat these bands relate to how we treat people? Listen to find out! In the beginning, Justin talks about the stress of finals, and the guys talk about mosh pits and "safe spaces" in the hardcore scene. Finally the guys wrap up the show by giving our listeners a challenge for the week, and Keith reminisces with his precious soundboard. As always, be sure to comment, rate, and subscribe to the podcast! Let us know what you think!
