I half agree with you. Only minor problem is that still, some bands aren't on there. But they're typically at least on Amazon, iTunes, etc.

Why are people downloading such shitty music?

does this mean they tend to pay for good music?

I guess. With the number of people who have smartphones (I don't) I thought there'd be plenty of places to stream most releases and the majority wouldn't need to download them.

With Amazon always throwing MP3 codes around and eMusic being cheap as hell, i don't understand why anyone still illegally downloads music.

^(at 3:30) Hmmm. Using music industry logic and math it costs the music industry $150,000 for each time a song is illegally downloaded, so all this theft have costed the music biz about $113,850,000,000,000 this first half of 2012 lol

Not surprised lol. Service members blow all their cash after joining on a car or clothes or partying so they can't even afford music. Just speaking from experience
