Toto

>>81440537
Oasis had multiple US hits though
>>
>>81440583
Wasn't "Anna Sun" at least a minor hit like a few years before Shut Up and Dance.

I swear I heard that shit on the radio when they were trying to ride that like Grouplove/Foster the People "indie pop" wave.
>>
Some dumbass bet me $20 that Everybody Wants to Rule the World was the only Tears For Fears hit
>>
>>81440757
It was and they’re like the only good one of all those shitty late 2000’s/early 2010’s indie pop bands. And they’re the only one that’s really still making good music.
>>
>>81440822
They’re still good because they stopped doing that College Party Band shit when it got old. Their new album What If Nothing is actually really good and varied.

Beck
Electric Light Orchestra
Modest Mouse
Vampire Weekend
Maybe Animal Collective?

How are we defining hit? Hot 100 chart? Top 40 radio chart? Rock radio chart?
