Trent Reznor: Steal My Music!

by Shaun on Sep.19, 2007, under Music

Trent Reznor, of Nine Inch Nails fame, has been quoted repeatedly expressing his distaste with the excessive price his record company charges his fans for his music.

Having discovered that his album was higher priced than many other new releases this summer he questioned the reason for this. The executive told him that it was because he had an established fan base. Loyal fans will pay any price for new releases by an artist they love.

At a recent gig captured by a Youtube user Trent had this to say:

“My record label all around the world hates me, because I yelled at them. I called them out for being greedy fucking assholes.”

“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’s not right.”
