1. The band should start each song with "evrybody in the hooouuuuse"
2. They should rename themselves to "The Guys Who Filmed The Pepsi Commercial With Britney"
3. They should use the Wyclef Jean AOBTD video clip for TV advertisement
4. They should spread flyers saying "We are not from a rogue country"
5. Each used concert ticket gets the customer a free "Royalburger" at McDonalds



I do not want any google ads here.

I see a couple of problems with your plan though, Barb. They never showed the Pepsi commercial here, and we don't have "Royalburgers" at McDonalds. ;-)

Maybe they should give away free HAWT DAWGS! :-D

Sell their song samples to P.Diddy so he can make a shitty remake.

Fuck you David Bowie, Sting, and Jimmy Page.
I hope you rot in hell for selling out.

Hire Pim & Niek as the main show and perform as a support act.

They should put out a new album, then tour.

errrr... this probably isn't the forum to blast bands for "selling out". Ever heard of 5ive? Wyclef Jean? Pepsi commercial(UK)? Jaguar commercial? Coke commercial(US)? Mini BHM guitars? The WWRY Musical? Queen and Paul Rodgers? etc. etc. etc.

Brian's pretty much turned selling out into an art form.

They've all sold out, but allowing Puffy to remake one of your songs is the ULTIMATE sell out.

Well, since many of their fans are 40 plus (and at home with children) or in their teens and at home after school, I think some daytime TV exposure would work. How about a walk-on on General Hospital? They could be a rock band that had one member bruise his ribs during a fall on stage, and then nurse Bobbie has to fix him up. Then everyone realizes it is Brian May and faints!

Of course! We all know he's still alive.

Didn't you guys see him among the people in audience at the Freddie Mercury Tribute Concert.
