Nine Inch Nails - (Live: Sydney)
"Last time I was here, I was doing a lot of complaining about the ridiculous prices of CDs down here. And that story got picked up and got carried all around the world and now my record label all around the world hates me, because I yelled at them, I called them out for being greedy fucking assholes. I didn't get a chance to check, has the price come down at all? I see a no, a no, a no... Has anyone seen the price come down? Okay, well, you know what that means - 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 motherfuckers will get it through their head that they're ripping people off and that that's not right."

-Trent Reznor, Nine Inch Nails

I keep going back to the vinyl lps that I paid abotu $8 or $9 bucks for as a kid before cds came out at about $17, so that means that when it was cheaper for them to make the cds they still doubled the price. I was gouged for 2 decades before my first computer when I was able to circumvent the system. I have no pity for them.

I'll be completely straight here - I never liked NIN. However, I'm forcing myself to like them now because Mr. Reznor has come out against the stupidity of the music industry.

Trent is the MAN!

NIN is the only band I mosh to. I saw him 4 times in the 2005-2006 North American tour. got fucked up in the pit, but it was worth every fucking bruise!

I ♥ him. *sniff*

NIN has never been my thing soundwise, but damn I have respect for the dedication that man puts to his art. This is how a true artist should behave.

I really love how all the artists who have hit their prime and made their millions through THE EVIL SYSTEM suddenly get all Robin Hood about it.

Wtf ever, hypocrites. Why didn't you say anything 15 years ago?

.... Thought so.

Sounds like a rant from one of my fellow Clevelanders that was conveniently borrowed from a Mr. Ice-T, who performed a few acts before NIN at Lollapalooza. . .

Trent is the only man I have ever masturbated thinking about, and he damn well deserves it.
