Every band EVER is a click, and a 5 minute download away. Yet people still cling to the same heroes of yesteryear. It's really a mystery to me. Not directing this at ANYONE in this thread, by the way. People like what they like -- whatever. It's just kinda odd to me, how few people really ever search out music.
you're right in some ways, but it doesn't mean people can't check this out and check out the variety of stuff on blogs as well. after all, your argument could perhaps be applied back to you ... in this era of such diverse and exciting music, you're (from what I've read on here) still concerning yourself with limp bizkit and korn. I think you're being presumptuous if you think people who are perhaps interested and excited to hear this aren't also mining blogs and soulseek for more obscure gems.
