Nine Inch Nails Lead Singer Tells Fans to Pirate Their Music

During a recent concert, Nine Inch Nails lead singer Trent Reznor decided to let his fans know exactly what he thought of CD prices.
STEAL IT. Steal away. Steal and steal and steal some more and give it to all your friends and keep on stealin'. Because one way or another these mother****ers will get it through their head that they're ripping people off and that's not right.
Universal Media is not very pleased with Trent Reznor's comments. You can see the full version of the rant here.Source: The Inquirer

I went twice last year. Only $20 each. Not too bad, imo.

where the hell do you get the number .007 cents per album sold? thats ridiculous. if that were true then there wouldnt be many multi-millionare music artists out there at all. an album would have to go triple platinum for the artist to even make a million bucks. now I know thats not true, just watch mtv sometime
a tour gives lots of money

I don't bother stealing music, but i don't bother buying albums i haven't heard anymore because the plain old truth is that record labels release garbage. There may be 2 or 3 good songs on the whole album and the rest is filler. Maybe if they actually released albums worth the ridiculous amount of money they are charging people will buy them. I've recorded music and i've written music and if they are real musicians/artists they do it because they love it. The creative process shouldn't be considered a chore like you're making it out to be.
Not so; if you are a real professional you never release trash, or you are being led by the nose by an AR and your record contract has to be reviewed; the creative process is a chore buster or you've never really worked on music as a pro..........

My wife is a Professional ex sony artist and I can tell you about it. It is a lot of work and dedication, certainly fun, but tainted with doubt and uncertainties.......see her myspace and you'll understand: Bogdana Chivas
