There's always so much debate around which band is the best, who has the best songs, who's best live, who continues to surprise etc. But who has the largest Fan Base? Its clear that Muse have The Best fan base, but who has the biggest?

What are the criteria for determining the largest fanbase?

 

I would think out of personal opinion. It's okay if you get it wrong really.

I don't think that is the right way to handle this dilemma. It needs well researched data and graphs to back up any arguments :yesey:

 

yes are we talking album sales, number of people registered on the respective band's forums, are we talking worldwide or within a specific country or region... if we are doing some comparing we need some data and comparison criteria.

Just found some proof.

 

Considering they pulled in over $130 million in the last year, it's not surprising that U2 is the biggest selling band in the world.

 

According to Forbes, AC/DC was in second place with $114 million, followed by Beyonce Knowles ($87 million), Bruce Springsteen ($70 million) and Britney Spears ($64 million).

 

Rounding out the Top 10 is Jay-Z with $63 million, Lady GaGa ($62 million), Madonna ($58 million), Kenny Chesney ($50 million) and the Black Eyed Peas and Coldplay with $48 million each.

 

Since when have Coldplay been bigger than MUSE?! Muse can sell out 4 nights at Wembley stadium in 3 years, Coldplay can sell out 1...

That last one was for sales, but when it comes to fan-base as in members of the bands website, the results are quite.... wierd...

 

The band with the largest fan base in the world is Korean Boy Band DBSK, (International name- TVXQ).

 

They succesfully broke the Guiness World Record for the Band with the largest Fan Base with over 800, 000 official fans. These fans span all over the world and the offical figure is deducted from those persons who pay to be an offical member of the fan group dedicated to DBSK, called Casseopia.

 

To put that into MUSE perspective, Muse have "Members: 161,343"

Ah but see here is where the country restriction comes in. Coldplay managed to sell out Goffertpark, Nijmegen twice. Whereas Muse didn't manged to sell all tickets for just the one date.

To put it in a usable perspective, name a few American or European bands instead.

I don't think posting this thread on a Muse fan board makes much sense..... :S

 

But anyway, in my opinion Musers are always different from other fans! In a good way!
