Who is the country equivalent to these performers?
Those who reached household name status and in no time were looked back at as bad remnants from a certain era and had their reputations age horrendously in no time.
Pop: Milli Vanilli. They sold several million copies of their album, and then came the lip synch confirming, and public backlash was beyond brutal. They had their Grammy rescinded and their album was deleted, making it the highest selling album to ever be taken out of print.
Rock: Limp Bizkit easily takes the cake here. They were all over MTV around the time of Woodstock 99, but five years later, you'd be hard pressed to meet people who would openly admit to ever having bought a Limp Bizkit album, even amongst people who love other contemporaries of theirs from that time period.
Rap: Vanilla Ice. That's a no brainer. Ice Ice Baby was a #1 hit, and he sold millions of his debut album. But in no time, he became the butt of many jokes, and his next studio album did not even enter the Top 200 albums.
