    >Imagine Dragons write a song, ''Radioactive''.
    >They want to enhance the live experience, so they add a new intro and breakdown for the song.
    >It's a good song, it breaks many Billboard records and wins a Grammy for Best Rock Song.
    >They are invited to perform at the Grammys, and so is Kendrick Lamar.
    >Kendrick Lamar wants to team up with Imagine Dragons for the performance. Let's check our books to find more rock bands that have teamed up with a rap artist even bigger than themselves to perform at the Grammys. Oh yeah, number one is our very own Linkin Park!
    >It's a good performance, highlight of the evening.
    >They release a studio version to keep fans occupied.

    Times the word ''movie'' was mentioned: 0

    I've learned more so from Imagine Dragons than any other artist that when the artist becomes popular, to totally ignore the songs you like so they aren't ruined from overplay. ID has easily become overplayed for me without actively listening to them. That's saying something.

    I've honestly disliked ID overall from the first time I stumbled on their album on Spotify, before ever hearing about them prior to that.

    I never said it was for a movie, I said they were sellouts because they wrote a ton of music for movies, AND, they released a new version of a song. Two separate ideas.

    Filip will defend Imagine Dragons with his life. :lol: #Fanboy

    Well the sellout argument is pretty stupid and it always has been. Aside from this Transformers collaboration, I don't think any of the songs they had written or put on those soundtracks were actually used in the movies and Alex Da Kid is all about promotion and getting his bands names everywhere. He's doing it with X Ambassadors too so I wouldn't be surprised to see their name everywhere soon.

    You know I will. #fanboy

    But seriously, if the band didn't put out music for movies, we'd be without anything new since September 2012. That's why it's good.

    Not sure if I want to buy Storm Corrosion's self-titled, Killer Be Killed's self-titled, or Michael Jackson's Xscape.... decisions, decisions.

    EDIT: I ended up getting both Killer Be Killed and Storm Corrosion, thanks to a friend having a 5 dollar Best Buy coupon. WOO!

    Major TV Series Ending After Next Year's Season:

    Mad Men
    Boardwalk Empire
    Two and a Half Men
    Glee
    Parks and Recreation
    Parenthood
    True Blood
    The Newsroom
    Wilfred
    Strike Back
    The Killing
    Justified
    Sons of Anarchy

    Although I believe some of these series have overstayed their welcome, the fact that there's a lot of acclaimed shows on this list about to end is freaking depressing.
