The Metal Bands That Never Sold Out

“A common criticism of metal bands, such as Metallica, is the fact that many of them end up “selling out” their harder edged sound for a more polished mainstream sound in the quest to be number one. Despite this, there are many bands out there that have never strayed far from their roots and remained true to their fans and their music.

It seems to be sad but true, but in the realm of heavy metal, many of the greats out there often turn to the “dark side” of commercialism or awkward changes in the quest for higher success and more riches. KISS, Metallica, Aerosmith, and Motley Crue have all been accused of selling out in the past, each of them bands that paved significant entries into the history of metal in their early days.”
