    What bands do you think shouldn't've gone mainstream?

    I'll start off with...: Metallica.

    They were doing okayish, even after Cliff's death, but when they made the Black Album, I was kinda disappointed. To see the thrash/heavy metal Metallica die, made me hate the "new" Metallica. They were no longer metal, but merely hard rock. If I had a choice to change Metallica when they were heavy metal, I would've kept them that way. Oh, but no. Metallica wanted more and more money and so they gave up the worst thing that they could've given up: Their heavy sound.

    Okay, your turn. GO!

    ^right on with Metallica

    Master of Puppets was the reason I listened to them in the first place... I thought their St. Anger album really was the start of their downfall

    Nice use of a "double contraction" in the title.

    Metallica was mainstream before they "got bad", (St. Anger).

    Dagnabit Axis, haha. I know that, but I mean they started to suck when the Black Album came out. Sure, they were still good, but the old HEAVY METAL Metallica was gone... And now they're trying to bring it back, but now they're using recycled riffs and sound like wannabes. Pathetic of them.

    I thought Kings Of Leon are starting to get worse... I loved their "Because of the Times" Album, but "Only By The Night" is worse.
