There's no story, really. I just think this site's users in general are really hypocritcal when it comes to things like "selling out." Gabe starts a new band looking for mainstream appeal, has some success, and suddenly he's a pariah, the butt of every joke, etc. fun. does the same thing, appears on Glee, sells their songs to every corporation that can write them a check, does collabroations with Pink, etc, and they're lauded as heroes. Next year at this time somebody will bump this thread and Nate Ruess' $3-5 million net worth will be received with "dude deserves it." Why not Gabe?
I'm not even saying this as a fan of either band - I just don't get why one guy trying to be rich and famous is okay with everybody, but the other isn't.
