But in general, there is no real correlation between the quantity of your fanbase and the quality of your music.
I disagree. When an artist starts to get a large fanbase, they will eventually be pressured to change their style in order to please their audience, or they will lose fans because they do not change their style at all. Overall, it is a turd sandwich in which an artist will have to change eventually. With the change comes varying opinions about what is good. Now, you say Green Day was never good. I disagree. I think they were good around their beginning.
