Rage Against the Machine Say Yes to Downloading
Looks like somebody's in conflict with somebody else over what it means to get napsterized....
Rage Against the Machine has posted an exclusive collection of free audio downloads and video streams on its official website as a gesture of goodwill toward fans who were recently banned from Napster for downloading tracks from the group's new album, "Renegades" (Epic/Sony). The ban was enacted by the group's management and record label without RATM's consent, according to a statement from guitarist Tom Morello.
Your classic artist verses industry tiff. If only the industry could see that loss leaders work for Safeway, and might for the music biz also. Oh well.
