The last cd's I bought (not counting the 100 I bought in China...) were Spiritual Machines and Happiness... is not a fish you can catch by Our Lady Peace.

Music sharin' (and pirating) ain't killin' the music industry. Hell, people have been sharing (and pirating) their music since back in the day. Sharing (and pirating) of music doesn't lead to less people buying music unless the music that was they listened to sucked. People will buy music if it's good, and they'd buy more cd's if it wasn't 20 bucks for a cd. Oh, and having a quality liner helps too... basically the only value-added feature that a cd can have, a damn good booklet thingy.

Yeah, some labels are dropping prices to Dischord-esque levels (White Stripes's new one is going for $9.99 at some Towers). And you know what? People are buying them. You'd think they would've learned this long ago...

I just noticed that too. All the good shit is going cheap. I think one day, the music industry is going to have to come clean about how little it really costs to make a CD. They've been fleecing us for years, greedy bastards.

I'm a great lover of music, so I'll gladly shell out $20 (Canadian) for a CD every payday...same with DVDs. I usually have a three song rule: if I have heard and like three songs, I buy the album. If I don't, I just get my buddy Rob or my cousin to burn me some tracks off of Morpheus. No fuss, no muss. It isn't killing the industry...but it sure as hell isn't helping it.

KKisFNHardcore, I did the same thing with The Eminem Show and yes, it was a terrible pain in the ass. I tried doing it a few weeks before the album hit stores, and ended up with nearly all tracks that consisted only of looped chorus bits... whatever the fuck that was about.

I was indifferent to The Strokes until Whichever Oasis Guy It Was On M2 said they were the best thing in the world, so I'm now by law forced to hate them. I like the White Stripes and *heart* The Hives, so I hope garage rock doesn't really take off. I, along with many others, I'm sure, have seen massive popularity ruin more than a few good bands.

It bothers me that Drew likes three of the same bands I do, even if they are relatively popular. (Pop is so brutal... I got Achtung Baby, the best of 80-90, and called it good.)

Kidding aside, I really wouldn't mind if a small-time band got huge and had a respectable fan base at the same time, but as I saw with BNL, I don't know if that can happen.

Of course, I have to point out my stupidity, noting that I came here originally after seeing "Vapor Trails" in the first message, thinking that someone was mentioning the song by Ride of the same name (yet spelled correctly) and I was going to spout off about how great a song that is... cuz it is.



Go on... touch it.

Well, all the journalists over in England are spraying their shorts over the Strokes, so that's pretty much expected from one of the Gallaghers. White Stripes weren't too impressive at the MTV Movie Awards, but then again, we got the bloated daughter of a celebrity who Really Didn't Want To Do This and Eminem performing, so they automatically looked like gold. And the Hives pulled the same mid-song schtick when playing "Hate To Say I Told You So" on Last Call *and* Conan O'Brien about how America loves the Hives, but they're cool. As for the Strokes, I'm not too impressed with the new video, but the album is actually pretty good. I'd rather curl up with the new RHCP album, but that's just me.

Another themed show. This one took a while, as I honestly thought there'd be more songs on this topic. There aren't all that many. I considered doing an Eddie Money tribute - but then I realized I hate Eddie Money.
