How do you feel when music gets popular?
I know this sounds like a totally "hipster" attitude but I just don't like it when music gets popular. I guess I should be happy when my favorite band makes it big but I'm just not.
Think about it- once a song gets popular, radio stations beat it on the ground. Even if you choose not to listen to it on the radio, when you do listen to it, you will be surrounded by people who think it's acceptable to sing along.
A popular band means that you will no longer be able to get up close and personal in small venues with cheap prices. Often times, their songs will have a whole different feel to them when they try to stay on top.
The one example that is bothering me right now is fun. I found them about 2 years ago and bought their CD. It had such a different sound to it and I loved it. I bought their new CD when it came out and later I heard one of the songs on NBC's "Chuck." That was fine until the Chevy Sonic commercial. Now I am getting sick of it. Anyone else agree with me or am I crazy?
