not huge -
Lots of 80s "Hair Metal" bands once grunge hit.
The band supposedly thought the licensing was covered, but they apparently used more of the sample than was agreed to.
It wasn’t “Mick and Keith,” alone, at any rate. Publishing and copyright affect more than just the composers. The Stones didn’t own the publishing to “The Last Time,” at the time.
Trent Resnor the leader of NIN is one of the co writers of the longest running # song off all time, and it came out this year. He's a big time producer.
You don't hear about NIN, but He has never gone away, and has had tons of success! He was NIN and from what I understand He played all the instruments on his first record.
Also I have to say, calling Huey a one album wonder couldn't be further from the truth.
Oingo Boingo officially called it quits 25 years ago and that was it, no reunions, nothing. Basically vanished after that.
I don't know where you guys get this about Huey?
They sold 30 million albums (Puts them in the top 200) had 12 top ten hits and 3 #1's. They only just stopped playing in the last couple of years because Huey has lost his hearing.
Heart. Wait a minute ... only half of that band was YUGE!!!
I’m no expert but thought the problem the Verve had was Allen Klein related and he held some Stones’ rights from Abkco records.
They are still doing their thing, but Loverboy comes to mind. Good tune here:
Underrated artist. Great hooks in all his hit tunes.
They just released a new album, and I heard about it as a non-fan (or at least someone who never really cared for their stuff) pretty quickly
I think Roger Hodgson left to start a solo career [Eye of the Storm]. Without him they lost their vocalist and primary songwriter.
Yes. I think most of the catalog prior to Sticky Fingers was for many years owned by Klein.
Agreed. But they didn't protest about cashing the cheques either.
Danny Elfman, the creative force behind that band, has gone on to a massive career as one of the most sought-after film scorers in modern times. Men in Black, Good Will Hunting, and the Simpson's theme (in a Lydian-Mixolydian mixed mode, for that matter!) are just a few. Plus about every Tim Burton movie ever.
Some of the other guys had a hand in scoring the Battlestar Galactica reboot, too.
Not sure whether that removes them from the OP's criteria, but the legacy is certainly ubiquitous.
(I also hear them all the time, but that's because my wife likes "Weird Science".)
CRY OF LOVE.... Great band from late 80s and early 90s. Black Crowes guitarist Audley Freed and vocalist Kelly Holland are the core elements.
My bad. I meant to say they never measured up to that album (Paranoid) thereafter; didn't mean to say it was their first album. Still love them of course.
