#1 Thursday and those that didn't quite make it01-21-2010, 09:46 AM
It a bit overcast this morning, but the real trouble arrives this afternoon. Severe weather from the drive home from work (great... just great).
TOTD: What band or musican did you really think was going to make it big and then they just never reached the success that you thought the would achieve. For me it was the group Live. Their album, 'Throwing Copper', had the songs 'Lighting Crashes' and 'I Alone'. After that they never released anything that was up to the standards of that album.Never argue with an idiot. They drag you down to their level then beat you with experience.

TOTD: What defines big? Are you talking bands that do the VFW hall venues? Or bands that pick up major lables, but just never reach Metallica level of fame?

*shrugs* I can name bands who I think made it bigger then they had any right to, but the other way around probably not so much.

Today will be about the same as yesterday which is to say cold and kind of dreary.
TOTD: I'd have a hard time naming a band that did make it big. :p

Only 3 out of 20 have made it to the office...another icy morning.
Good topic, FlaGator. I'm gonna have to mull this one over. I'm usually fine when bands that I like don't get too famous.Voted hottest "chick" at CU - My hotness transcends gender

Our Lady Peace: First album was great, several hit singles... then poof! Where'd they go?
The Inverse TOTD: Nickelback... phenomenal success they don't deserve."Our Constitution was made only for a moral and religious people.
