And they, in fact, did care whether the band released records or got famous. They cared that they didn't. The moment they did, these people up and ditched them because "you sold out man!"
Maybe they just expanded their fanbase?
(note: Metallica did sell out, but not as fast as their first single)
Yeah, I should have given that post a little bit more clarity. But you get the picture.
