Hi Bill!

I would be more inclined to say one of the legacy bands in music history would be most photographed in the world. I am thinking somewhere along the lines of KISS, Rolling Stones, Beatles, and so on.

SCANDAL certainly have a nice media following (esp. in today's social media era), but expanding the scope to compare with other bands would lead to me believe they are okay-ish.

Cheers.

Hola Bill,

I would be more of the idea of legendary bands in music history would be the most photographed in the world. I am thinking somewhere along the lines of Metallica, Nirvana, The Beatles, and so on.

SCANDAL certainly have gotten better, but expanding the scope to compare with other bands would lead to me believe they are alright.

Adios.

こんにちはビル、

I'd chance that legendary bands in music history would be the most photographed in the world. I am thinking somewhere along the lines of Queen, AC/DC, The Beatles, etc.

SCANDAL has definitely grown in popularity, but they are definitely not the most photographed.

またね。

I bet SCANDAL is more-photographed than the Beatles. Remember the Beatles' career was pre-digital photography (there was no such thing as selfies!)—plus at their height the Beatles were not a performance band and were seldom seen together in public. Today everyone can take unlimited pictures with their cells. So hordes of bands much less popular than the Beatles get photographed a thousand times more… even SCANDAL although let's face it, they're far from top of the pop—they deserve it but just aren't there yet

Well it is certainly easier for people to have their own pictures of Scandal, I saw the Beatles and Rolling Stones but had nothing to take a picture with !

This is a good topic discussion.  I have often thought about how prevalent their image is all over the internet and video sites like YouTube and DailyMotion.  They are all relatively active in taking daily personal pictures of themselves and posting them somewhere, and they seem to do a lot TV appearances and press compared to other modern bands.  To me it feels like if they are not the most photographed rock band, they're pretty close to the top.  Of course, they are the only band I actively follow each day so I'm just biased. 

It is interesting that I don't see a lot of paparazzi-style photographs of them.  That could be the pleasant culture of Japan, or the fact there is no demand for candid shots since the band puts out so many pictures themselves.  In this regard, they are probably not more photographed than the average Western pop star that appeals to teen fans.

One of the pros to the modern era of internet and cellphones is that a band can get their themselves out into the world in a way classic bands were unable.  When I was a kid the only way to see the bands I liked was to pick up the latest edition of Hit Parader or Cream magazine; or maybe you'll get lucky and they'll do a guest spot on The Muppet Show or the annual Jerry Lewis Telethon (I was too young to stay up to watch bands play on "Midnight Special" or "Don Kirshner's Rock Show," and "Solid Gold" was too cheesy.)  Needless to say, MTV was a big deal for young fans when it came out.

There is no other explanation to some peoples "claims" such as this thread than bias. Nobody in their right mind would believe that a band from Japan with 300k followers would be the most photographed band in the world today. I love SCANDAL just as much as you all but these threads are just silly

That's the power of photo-metia for you.

For anyone confused, Confirmation Bias happens when you twist data to fit your own claims or expectations. It can be found anywhere: entertainment industry, sports, religion, politics, science.
Why does that matter? Because an inability to look outside of your existing belief systemsfandom will vastly limit your ability to grow and improve [as an individual]. We need to consider more possibilities, and be more open to alternatives.

I am a simple man. I see nice picture of SCANDAL, I like. That's it.
I need not worry about how it was the 2342365th photo of SCANDAL.

considering the majority of their big concerts happen in a country that tends to prohibit taking picture and videos during concerts, i do not think they are even remotely the most photographed band. you can probably build a better case with any other big band outside japan because of how laxed every other country are with taking pictures during concerts.
