I found a copy, but it rings up at 21.99 and they won't pm the 'online only' price.

I know. Hopefully Will I Am will finish his time machine so I can go back to 1996 when I booked/met them (before they added Fergie) and inform them how they go from a great hip hop act to the monstrosity they are today. Or maybe I can go to a Wild Orchid concert (look it up kids) bang her and then later convince Fergie to kill herself from my terrible love making.


They have a video for a song from I believe their 2nd album, and it is all about rappers selling out. I believe they are telemarketers in the video? It's on youtube, I know that for sure. Anyway, originally written as a sort of "be true to the music" song, it has become incredibly ironic over time.

I'm not sure who is more responsible for killing BEP, Fergie or Will I Am wanting more success after Elephunk (the last good album - yes Fergie is on it but if you go back and listen it is surprising how little she is actually featured on it).

Fergie is the Yoko Ono of the Black Eyed Peas. That is all.

She's WORSE than yoko ono. At least yoko had the decency to break up the beatles before they became a laughing stock.

I'm 100% shocked that books still exist in today's day and age. I thought they'd be out by now. They make up like 1% of today's entertainment and unless you're 60 or older, stray away from books and start emersing yourself with real entertainment.

Nope. This, it's an actual video of theirs from back in 2000.




And in a weird sort of way, Yoko sort of preserved The Beatles. I mean, honestly, they would of broken up sooner or later, but they ended up doing so before the quality of the music started to decline and they slowly faded into the background. Was the world perhaps deprived a couple more excellent Beatles albums? Possibly, but it may have also been saved a couple of terrible ones.

I do wish Lennon was still alive though. I can't even begin to imagine the path his music would of taken over the years and what he would be making today.

Let's really be honest here. Do you think BEP would still be "relevant" in any genre today if they didn't add Fergie and go the Pop route?

What?! These were the shitheads that wrote that hellish song? There can be no forgiving those bastards.

The DotD is over. It's too bad because I would now go there and buy up all the copies of this "game" just to burn them. Hell, even with the price gone back up, I'm still tempted to do it.

I'm so far removed from "Pop" music that I don't even know what that song is. The last BEP song I can identify with is Joints and Jams. I don't listen to commercial radio. I only listen to DJ Premier, DJ Eclipse, Tony Touch, Statik Selektah and BackSpin on XM.

Back on topic, sorta. I couldn't trade the BB LE Wii version of this game to...so I gave it to the kids to play and they don't even like it. They said it sucked compared to MJ Exp and Just Dance games.

I don't recall ever saying relevant, or implying that they would be "playing the super bowl at half time" level of popular. They did release two major label albums and were making musically professionally for a while before adding Fergie, and had a third album and a couple top ten hits on the first album after Fergie that was still actually pretty good. Starting with Monkey Business they just became Fergie and Will I Am ft. those other guys. Monkey Business of course being the album that brought us "Humps" which was more popular than anything they had done to that point.

Thus proving that people are idiots once and for all.

They probably wouldn't be having video games made based on them if they had kept at what they were doing, but Nas doesn't have a video game either, and is still making music for a living. They completely changed what they were making musically to make more money, simple as that. As artist, that makes them sell-outs and their descent into pop music hell does bother me. As business people, it was a wise choice. It has made them all filthy rich.

Has anyone's PS3 3D Display shown up in their rewardzone yet? If so, did you get double points since it is a video game accessory? I did not.

A lot of people are still making music, but not making money. Hence they go that other route. BEP seemed like one of those genuine hip hop groups that did it for the love. They weren't extremely popular when they first appeared and were sort of a niche group. If any group would have turned pop I wouldn't have thought it would be them. When I saw they added Fergie and their sound changed, I really couldn't blame them. The Roots on the other hand, now that's a different story. The same way you pointed out BEP turned into what they were mocking in that video you posted, the Roots kind of did the same thing when you look at "What They Do"

Didn't realize this had turned into a hip-hop discussion thread :) Definitely agree with the last two posts about BEP. I don't mess with them anymore. Not that I liked them back in the day either, but before Fergie they were pretty huge in the hip-hop scene. I worked college radio back then and they were consistently top ten.

Hey, when there are no deals you got to have something to talk about. I hope the MJ Experience game doesn't hit the DOTD or this thread is going to go bananas.

Good, that's just a weekly sale. I thought those would be future DotDs and I was about to bust some heads. There better be decent deals this week. Besides GoT was $20 at Best Buy a few weeks after it came out. Still passed on it.

If the link doesn't work, search for "Video_Game_Sale_69180" in all categories.

I would have made a separate thread for it yesterday, but I saw the Spider Man game was singled out from the sale and already posted so I didn't bother. Plus some thread titled "Please delete - repost" was talking about little known 19th century american presidents so I didn't feel like anyone would have noticed before the thread got buried to page 2 when crap like that was being posted.

It may be worth it to try to pm Toys R Us's clearance price on Skyrim of $9.98. I expected it to be a pain in the ass but I was able to pm without any issues (granted I am cool with the employees there) and get a crapload of Skyrim, Sc2, and Diablo at my BB and hooked a bunch of CAG's up. There's also a thread on here somewhere where keys are bein sold for very cheap from people trying to help out others

Their first two albums were pretty good... you know, when they actually had guitars in their music, and they played something that resembled Rock. Then, they turned into some kind of unlistenable experimental/electronic crap. Ugh.
