Totally agree, if LP had released another Living Things instead, they could've easily doubled their sales. I wouldn't have wanted them to do that, but it's important to recognise that their drop in popularity is intentional, with albums like ATS and THP that the band themself knew would fare worse commercially than previous records. If they had continued pumping out songs like What I've Done and Numb, they almost certainly would be "bigger" now, but the guys made a conscious decision to trade popularity for artistic freedom, and honestly, I wouldn't still be a fan of the band if they hadn't made that choice. Great point. It's all well and fine to find a band or two from the early 2000s that are doing better than LP right now, but it's very true that the vast, vast majority of bands from even 5 years ago, let alone 15, have dropped off the face of the earth far faster than LP ever will. It's almost hard to think of examples because of how forgotten they are. I'm Irish haha, I just used US figures because they're far, far easier to find.
