No, its how most bands establish their online presence.

Go to any small, local band's concert. Look at the back of their CD. Chances are there's a URL to their Myspace page.

I watch a ton of local music... bands with only hundreds to thousands of fans... 99% of them push their Myspace page.

I don't work for Myspace, don't have an account... just sayin'

We probably haven't heard of them.

MySpace? The music networking site?

That's the only reason I still have mine. Thousands and thousands of saved messages dating back to my sophomore year of high school? Probably gonna be fun to look back through someday.

What Myspace is now, Facebook will be soon.

Don't forget that it will also be a source of political scandal and extortion in 30 or so years.

How I hope that you forget your MySpace
I hope it slips completely from your mind
And I hope it stays up long enough for the next generation to find
And I hope that it embarrasses your children
I hope their bratty friends all forward it around
And I hope that you forget your password
So you cannot take it down

Having your name associated with pages that had crap backgrounds and text of the same color, with a song, and two videos going at once, should be enough to shame anyone off the internet.

On time, and awesome.

You have to first possess a sense of shame in order to feel it.

As awful as Myspace is (and it truly is), their band page is still about 50,000 times better than the sorry excuse for an artist page that Facebook 'provides'.

I still have mine up. I just look it as a time capsule of my life from 2005-2007. I like through it every now and again if I get nostalgic for the mid to late 2000s.

MySpace was pretty lame, but it made Facebook look like GeoCities. And Facebook is still way behind the curve.

/yes, I have Facebook accounts
