You can release all the esoteric artsy fartsy stuff you want, and have a huge cult following...but if the ordinary Joe can't name one of your songs...then you aren't there yet. It took REM quite a few albums before they started stringing together some hits...still a great band for sure, but they moved into a different status with a few hit records. Chile Peppers is another good example...where would they be without Give It Away? Still a great band...but without the universal recognition. Oasis too....pounded out a bunch of hits...years ago....and even though they just put out a great new cd...they are filling arenas because of those hits.
