Here.  Try this.  Stop sucking.  Embrace a digital format.  Make us WANT to spend money on sustaining your industry.  Understand that the dollar you once had to yourself is now split between you, movies, video games and other electronic devices and that if you were truly serious about making something decent for the marketplace you would have sold the execution of Nicki Minaj as a pay-per-view.

F*ck 'em.

And I was flipping the stations for some reason the other day and one of the worst songs I have ever heard came on. it was like "salt on the rim rim rim. give me the keys to the benz benz benz." sung by some chick with a nasally voice sounding like a child. I thought it was a parody commercial for a few seconds, but then the hook came around and it kept going and it hit me. HOLY SH*T THE MUSIC INDUSTRY IS RETARDED. I came in to work all mad and made my coworkers laugh. I found it was a Nicki Minaj song. If someone thinks that is good....oh geeze whatever it has probably sold a million copies so what do I know.

But music will never die. I couldn't care less about the industry.

FM Radio will ruin our business
Cassette tapes will destroy our business
VHS tapes will ruin our business
DCC tapes will end our business
CD-R will end the music industry!
blah blah blah

It;s your obsessive resistance to all progress that is ruining your business, dumbasses.

And by "Music Industry" we're talking about people who have formed a business around taking something out of one Person A's hands and selling it to Person B

Once we (Person B) can buy directly from Person A we won't EVER need that middleman again.  They better get used to it.  ...and find new jobs.

Oh, and ANY politician who so much as listens to a "Music Industry" person talk to them about the government helping them keep a no-longer-needed business running in the black needs to be voted out of office.

Nobody likes autotune, and dubstep sucks. Everyone's probably tired of the same lame people putting out the same lame types of material, and stupid "safe" rock songs.

It has been sort of common knowledge since the 90's that if you reaslly want to support a musician or band, you go to their SHOW. Most make very little at all from album sales.

Just die already.  Make room for companies who are actually innovative.
