Jim Farber of the New York Daily News is profiling how the hard rock sales for the past few months have been dampened while faux-grunge group Nickelback, ’70s-style acts, Jet and The Darkness, and arty act Incubus have enjoyed success. Farber cites P.O.D., who saw their last release, ‘Satellite,’ move 2.7 million copies in 2002 while its latest ‘Payable on Death’ CD has fallen to No. 186 on the Billboard charts after just 13 weeks, selling just over 400,000 copies. Meanwhile, Limp Bizkit’s ‘Results May Vary’, is lumbering in the low 80s on the chart after 20 weeks, selling only as many as first week sales of their previous effort, ‘Chocolate Starfish and the Hot Dog Flavored Water’, moved in its first week. Korn’s dropoff also is cited. The full article at nydailynews.com has since been removed or relocated.
