I Was Brainwashed

So i've finally figured out why i'm so anti-big music, anti-sellouts.

When i was a kid, i remember watching the same California Raisins movie over and over, it was called The Raisins Sold Out.

You remember the Raisins right? They sang "Heard It Through The Grapevine". they were these little claymation figures and they were awesome! Anyway, i used to watch this short movie about them all the time, it showed how they signed a contract and proceeded to give in to the demands of their big label. they were forced to sing music genre's that they weren't accustomed to like country-rap and sing at venues that were lame like an old-folks home.

This is serious stuff my friends

Anyway, i still have the VHS so if you ever want to know the true meaning of sellout, get over to my house!
