Well to be honest Trent was the most accessible artist from an indie scene that had been growing for a long time (example Wax Trax). Basically a pretty boy in an indie scene that the majors decided to give a shot. Would consider him 20+ years detached from the indie scene. Or anything relating to developing artists.

Also don't forget that Radiohead and NIN made their name from major labels. Sorry know this has more to do with what Kaoz and I was discussing. Just your post made me think about it.
