The Beegees Have sold 50 billion albums. We take the blame for this sordid musical taste.

A not so interesting fact is that the Bee Gees have sold over 220 million records. Probably down right scary rather than interesting you would have to admit. That’s a lot of sales and equates to 1 in every 3 people you meet owning at least one album. Maybe Living Eyes from 1981 or the follow up to Saturday Night Fever. Not bad for a band from the Isle of Man. But a sorry state of affairs as far as the British public go. The once heralded greatest musical nation on earth has some explaining to do. Some blame needs to be accredited. Have you ever met anyone that admits to liking them? No, nor have we. All your friends who only like bands you have never heard of, in all likely hood listen to the Bee Gees behind closed doors. And that is not all.

The top 100 biggest selling artists of all time reads like a who’s who of the worst chord sequences imaginable. Garth Brooks, Mariah Carey, Celine Dion, ABBA, Julio Iglesias, Whitney Houston, The Back Street Boys for Gods sake!!! Wont it stop? All of these artists and more have sold well over 100 million albums and whats worse is they are likely to be joined by the like of Britney Spears, The Spice Girls, Boyzone and who knows who else. As more and more radio stations pollute our Internet and Myspace churns out mediocrity after mediocrity, the trend is set to continue. And yet everywhere you go, people will never admit to liking these people, they will like The White Stripes and some fresh punk band from Tokyo, Some unknown DJ who scratches the theme from Bergerac over some Italian rap. No they don’t, they like Phil Collins!!!!

Taketheblame would like to take full responsibility for the sordid purchase of the worst records released.
