Yesterday I heard a song on the radio. I immediately recognised it as yet another generic pop song that managed to saturate the music industry. Immediately I moved to change the radio station, until I heard the lyrics: “Grunge was everything, at least it was to me.” 483 more words
I thought this was an absolutely brilliant, thorough & well-versed analysis of individuals who think it's okay to steal music from artists they apparently "like". Call me crazy but I want to actually HELP the artists I like by paying for their music, going to their shows, buying their merchandise. I actually want them to stick around and keep creating music and art I love, hopefully for decades to come. If you're an artist/band, you want me as a fan because I'll shovel the money out for the previously said items and I usually try to get bands/artists I like over with anyone that will listen. This goes out to all of the music "lovers" who find it too inconvenient to pay for music. Especially to the one shitty hipster who sneered at me a couple years back, "Who pays for music anymore?" I do. Enjoy.
