Internet Band In Trouble

from the can't-we-just-get-this-straight? dept

Okay, so first we post a story about how bands on the internet are actually making money and then a few hours later an article comes out talking about the failure of an overhyped internet band. The article is about a band that was a huge success on the internet and was signed to Universal. In the first week, their sales weren’t nearly as big as expected, and some are saying that “internet” bands can’t make the jump to “the real world”. I can’t see how you judge all internet bands by one band in its debut week.
