Wow I thought they got bigger as their career went on, not vise versa...
It actually worked both ways. On one hand, they've reached a broader audience with mega-hits like "New Divide", "Waiting for the End" and "Burn It Down" (although it didn't really help that they returned to hard rock, which is largely unpopular nowadays). On the other hand, people now completely hate/dismiss the band for their nu metal early days and only remember them (ex. "Linkin Park still exists?") for that era. They almost have as much hate as Creed.
I think he's talking about Maroon 5.
You should do one for The Beatles !
Actually, those numbers are pretty impressive for a band that long. It's just Songs About Jane has a large following.
Haha yeah I'm talking about Maroon 5.
But in terms of LP, there always will be annoying people who whine about how they don't sound like Hybrid Theroy LP. And sadly, that's a good deal of the fan base. Missin out if you ask me.

They sold a bit more copies than Foo Fighters, but Dave Grohl and the others will outsell them by the time Sonic Highways comes out in stores this fall.
Eh, when like 75% of your sales comes from your debut... you know you didn't do much after it.
Not always. Music sales decrease every year, especially rock music and especially post 2009. You can see it from the Year End sales, only 3 or 4 rock album at the top 40. Very sad. Wasting Light (Foo Fighters), A Thousand Suns (Linkin Park), The 2nd Law (Muse), Delta Machine (Depeche), El Camino (Black Keys), and other are very good album, but their sales stay around 2/3 million, not more.
