Doesn't using the term "sellout" identify you as a douchebag automatically?

I think you're confusing them with the Beatles.

I think I remember reading that "Wake Up In The Morning" the Rice Krispie jingle was the only Rolling Stones song completely composed by Brian Jones.

Mick Jagger can't be a man 'cuz he doesn't eat the same cereal as me.

It's not "selling out", it's "buying in".

Yes, because there was once a magical time when rock and roll wasn't primarily about the bottom line.

I would perform an umemorable jingle for Rice Krispies on TV, and probably do it for less than the Stones charged (adjusted for inflation, that is).

Well, would you have bought cereal from a sketchy-looking Mississippi sharecropper? No? Well, that's why we have the Stones. And to a lesser degree, Zeppelin.

How many bowls of Rice Krispies does it take to fill the Albert Hall?

It wasn't magical, but yes there was a time. The time is still here, depending on who you talk to. If you think playing rock and roll is and always was just about money, you are sorely mistaken.

The girl looks exactly like Uma Thurman from Pulp Fiction.

Feh, it wasn't as bad as "Sympathy for the Devil Dogs."

What about the pictures on the other side of the album. Just because they are dead doesn't mean they should be slighted.......

I see neither the folks at the New Yorker nor subby noticed that bit where it says "1964" across the bottom.

Depends, is it a Delta blues style jingle?

You see, this is why I play the guitar by myself in my room. Nobody can hear me, so I'm not a sell out.

Also, I put on headphones so even I can't hear me, just to be sure I don't sell out.

Only if the person interpreting it happens to be a spineless corporate shill.

Well Mick Jagger did go to the London School of Economics, I doubt he thought he'd still be performing 40+ years later let alone 10 years later.

If Mick could stick a spoon in a bowl, and spill milk all over the stage?

Would it satisfy you, would it slide on by you, would you think the boy is strange?

Ain't it stra-a-ange.

All of your favorite musicians sellout eventually. Even the guy from Gladiator. Link (new window)
 
2009-07-10 11:09:52 PM  
I think by "sellout", subby means "popular", which is a group subby can't get into.
 
2009-07-10 11:25:51 PM  
"snap crackle pop".. yes the rolling stones just got on stage.
 
2009-07-11 01:47:56 AM  
Hell, that 30 second song was 1,000x better than most shiat out these days. I'm looking at you BLACK EYED PEAS, Jonas Brother's, Brittany 'wtf isn't she done yet' Spears, Lady STFU, and on and on.

BKITU: Mick Jagger can't be a man 'cuz he doesn't eat the same cereal as me.


you win - I award you 23 internets.....


But onto more important things - Keith Richards wasn't nearly as rich back then as he is now, and he probably wanted food on his table and maybe even heroin in his veins.

I would have done that commercial in a heatbeat if I were them


And as Jerry once said, "Where do I sign" (when asked if he had sold out).
