As a fan of the old style of no doubts music, I do feel that they have sold out. But it would still be better than listening to some div off the telly singing a karaoke version of a cracking biffy song and selling more than the recently released original.
Luckily the internet doesn't have a set playlist, and great independent artists can get known without being playlisted. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/555%25
is a perfect example of what you can do without the help of Radio 1 and kerrang!
