    I voted for the Black Keys. Vampire Weekend never had any integrity to begin with.

    Vampire Weekend for sure, The Black Keys are still very underrated despite all the recent accomplishments. I hope Coachella does them a little more justice this year.

    The Keys are definitely more popular, but they still have the same sound they've always had. I've never really associated popularity with selling out. To me selling out has always been when a band changes their sound to be more radio friendly. (i.e. Green Day)

    ^^^That.

    There's a difference with bands like The White Stripes, The Black Keys vs Green Day, Kings of Leon.

    i love both bands and they are way to quirky for either to sell out

    KOL were like the Black Keys and become more like the Killers once they released Only By The Night album

    so that is kind of selling out

    TBK have always been pretty good, VW have always sucked immensely. I don't feel like either of them have "sold out".
