I don't understand what this has to do with Drake.

Why is Stereogum calling this out as bad after SXSW has corrected and apologized for it?

The fact that you initially approached speaking on gay anthems and the lesbian community with the utmost respect by seeking the approval of gay Stereogum commenters before making your post was very thoughtful. The post also may create discourse in a demographic that could otherwise easily ignore the issues the gay anthems movement is fighting against, forcing them to look inwardly to a certain degree and interact with problems that are not their own.

Frankly I don't care about the secondary market. Scalpers have a right to sell the tickets they get, as much as that might suck at times. What I think is wrong is: 1. the broker owning the secondary outlet 2. the venue/artist/management reserving tickets specifically for the secondary market 3. using bots to buy tickets I do believe Congress could do something about 1-3.

It shouldn't, I know, but it does. In a single move the band unravels some of its own ethics, and does so in a way that positions them alongside an irrelevant nostalgia act at the highest possible price for fans. It is the exact opposite of LCD's approach to their finale.

He's got a pretty manageable argument if he can prove they didn't correctly pay royalties based on the 5 people who streamed those songs.

Interestingly a lot of those cd-heyday releases are super rare/valuable on vinyl. DMB for sure, oddly. But ok, I can play! I'll take vinyl issues of: Lemonheads 'Come on Feel' Live 'Throwing Copper' Alice in Chains 'Dirt' Annie Lennox 'Diva' House of Pain 'Shamrocks and Shenanigans'

THIS IS SLANDER!! Left unchecked, people might get the idea that Billy Corgan can be a difficult egomaniac.
