For Music fans, the following post will probably make you sad. It shows just how the corporate stranglehold of music has stifled creativity for the sake of making money.
Creed has sold more records in the US than Jimi Hendrix
Led Zeppelin, REM, and Depeche Mode have never had a number one single, Rihanna has 10
Ke$ha's “Tik-Tok” sold more copies than ANY Beatles single
Flo Rida's “Low” has sold 8 million copies – the same as The Beatles' “Hey Jude”
The Black Eyed Peas' “I Gotta Feeling” is more popular than any Elvis or Simon & Garfunkel song
Celine Dion's “Falling Into You” sold more copies than any Queen, Nirvana, or Bruce Springsteen record
Same with Shania Twain's “Come On Over”
Katy Perry holds the same record as Michael Jackson for most number one singles from an album
Barbra Streisand has sold more records (140 million) than Pearl Jam, Johnny Cash, and Tom Petty combined
People actually bought Billy Ray Cyrus' album “Some Gave All…” 20 million people. More than any Bob Marley album
Probably because all those Marley fans torrented his albums.
The cast of “Glee” has had more songs chart than the Beatles
