The problem though is the vast majority of radio play and listeners don't
have a clue who Kottenmouth Kings, X, Dead Kennedy's, are. And the majority
haven't heard anything other than the "hits" from Nirvana, STP, or Sublime.

Remember people Garth Brooks is the largest selling male artist in the
world with over 300 million sold.

If that doesn't clarify it, I don't know what does.
