First off, I am not biased for carbon copy bands like *NSYNC and 98 Degrees. I think repeating a 3 letter word 3 times is plain satanic and the name “*NSYNC” suits their fashion styles: dumb. As for 98 degrees….well, the last time I checked, it was “98 degrees of Nick Lachey Singing All the Damn Time”.
Anyways, some of you said that they’ll be number one WAY before the due date was out. Even the popdirt poll said that they’ll have over 500k albums sold. Hell, even with Coldplay and the Foo fighters putting out albums the same week, and the fact that BSB was an outgrown trend, some of you STILL bitched about how they will be #1.
Incomplete is only an unexpected success. No one expected them to be in the top 20 (however some of you actually thought that it would be #1………HA). Not to mention the fact that Incomplete only gained a lot in SALES. Was it due to the song being good? Wrong-o! The fans just wanted to support their group by buying or legally DL-ing it. They received an unexpected less than normal radio play (for a group who almost broke the top 10) which really asks the question: Do people really like the song?
Even more, Never Gone was #3 in last week’s sales. Who beat them? The well deserving Foo Fighters and Coldplay. Oh yeah, and not to mention their #7 this week.
Now you petty little gamblers have to face defeat and are playing diplomats and making excuses why they aren’t #1. It’s kind of like when *NSYNC broke BSB’s Millennium record and when their singles including “the call” didn’t even make the top 50. The excuse was something totally catastrophic. It has nothing to do with people downloading it or the fact that their slow sellers, people just aren’t interested. And please, don’t even put that at-least-they-did-good-in-Paraguay crap. US is the media mogul of the world, not to mention BSB are from here; don’t act like US is second to Germany or even Canada when it comes to sales.
So the lesson to BSB fans is not to hang on to pushing 30 something men like a kid to a shining star, but to realize acting like a total moron can and will bite you in the ass sooner or later.
