Thursday Discussion: That Band Shouldabeenhuge!
Last week I posted up a “demo day” post for our Thursday Discussion — and you would be pleased to know that all of us on staff, and from the other sites, are pouring through the submissions to find the best of the best. Hopefully soon we’ll have that completed and can move on to the next stage: voting. I’ll let you know when that’s ready. So, for this week I’ve decided to focus on one of our favorite AP.net arm-chair quarterback discussions: the bands that shoulda/coulda/woulda blown up.
There’s not a day that goes by that you don’t read in a news post someone claiming, “this band is about to blow uppppp” or “this band is going to be hugeeeee” or “I miss Midtown.” Ok, that last one doesn’t really fit, but you get the idea. We love to proclaim a band is about to be huge. Most will probably deride the same band if they ever achieve this success, but during the climb, the commenters love to be on board. The fact is that most of these bands will just never explode in that way. Most of the community loved “next big things” won’t become the next fun. or Fall Out Boy. The stars will just not align perfectly for the cross-over to happen, and we’ll be posting “I miss…” comments in the next 5 years or so … but that doesn’t mean there aren’t some bands that SHOULDABEENHUGE. And, with that - today I want to highlight some of those bands I thought were going to explode, and never did. I’d love to hear your thoughts as well, and, as always - maybe you haven’t heard some of these gems. If you haven’t — you should! So check them all out.
Feel free to reblog and let me know your picks!
