Would The Offspring support Napster in 2012?
Well, what do you think?
Back in 99 they did. Pretty Fly was the most pirated song up to that point, and they said it didn't harm record sales...au contraire.
With CO1 the band and Columbia got into a huge dispute about sharing the whole record for free. They reached the compromise where Original Prankster was downloadable and one US fan would win 1 million dollars.
Nowadays they seem to make a lot of jokes about wishing this is their most stolen / pirated record, etc....and considering the way downloads changes the music industry I do get the why of the sarcasm.
So...would The Offspring support Napster in 2012?
What's YOUR take on it?
A ghost is all that's left, of everything we swore we never would forget. Tried to bleed the sickness, but we drained our hearts instead. We are...we are the dead.
