Once upon a time a husband and wife dreamed about stopping manufactured musical shit getting to the number one spot at Christmas. Instead of putting it in their list to Santa and sending it to the North Pole, they started a campaign about it on Facebook. Their Christmas wish was granted and they stopped poor little Prince Joe from having his own wish granted. As RATM rocked their way into the number one space, little did the happy couple realise, that their replacement choice spawned from the same evil empire. The wicked witch in this story being Sony Music Entertainment.
You see, RATM are signed to Epic and Joe is signed to Syco. Now if we draw up the dots it all leads to the same place – Sony Music Entertainment. So whilst half of my Facebook friends are currently screaming about their little musical revolution, it’s not really that great. Yes, you managed to stop reality show products from reaching number one, but couldn’t you have at least picked a better competitor? You just gave SME another 500,000 sales. Bah Humbug.
