And yet Cyrus, Perry, Rihanna, and Beiber are HUMUNGUS stars. The power of marketing? There are a good number of bands making great music out there who are still not household names which is a shame. In 20 years the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame will be inducting musicians and the majority of people are going to say, "Hun, who?"

Bruce Houghton

Sad, but very true.


i'll bet in 20 years no one will remember who justin bieber is, and his influence on the music world has been zero.

Ed Reid

Musical influence is very rarely related to overall record sales. Although, there will now be a lot of younger folks who will discover Lou Reed for the first time. His music will now influence even more musicians.


VU set the tone.
