Holy grails of a minor sort exist.
When you're past age 28, popular music loses its appeal.
As a teen or young adult, whether or not a million sweaty quasi-literate rock fans like something seems important. This is your social group, this is who you are.
After that, you start to define yourself by what you have accomplished that is not an opinion in the eyes of others. Instead you want indisputable fact. So the mere popularity does less for you.
At the same time, having ten million sweaty quasi-literate people repeat your memes would give you real power... more than the income, this is what you want.
The minor holy grail of the 30+ musician is to write the album that combines the depth of King Crimson with the mass appeal of the Ramones.
New Amebix... it would be kind of sad if they tried to re-live 1982. It would be kind of underwhelming if they didn't go their own way. This new track is mostly Iron Maiden, got some Motorhead in there, and a lot of punk, but put into a modern rock format. Sounds almost like Jesu mixed in.
The result is something they can play on MTV that keeps the values of masculine power, sentiment for the revered eternal, and so forth. Without buying into a "camp," like deathcore, Christianity, liberalism or hipsters.
