And just best metal band ever.

SO inappropriate…good god, what are they thinking?

THANK YOU. Every damn year it comes down to finger pointing at music “piracy” as the downfall of the music industry, when it’s just a changing market that needs to be worked with and evolved with. Print media adapted to it quite well (i.e. tablet subscriptions, special paid online content and features, etc.). The music industry has been the absolute slowest in adapting to technology the past two decades because they’re so intent on criminalizing and fining their actual CUSTOMERS. So many studies are coming out showing that people who download movies and music illegally are also the same people who A) Spread the word about the films/albums/artists to more people (of which many may be more “paying” customers), and B) Tend to actually pay for a vinyl or album or concert ticket to see the artists they truly love or the ticket to go see the movie they have to see on the big screen. Instead of working WITH that customer base, the music industry has continually worked against them since the early 90s.

I mean–really–who would have thought that people who illegally download entertainment are also the ones loyal enough to front the money where it really matters!
