Ahhh, well...some didn't like the song, some don't like iTunes, some don't like DRM (like you can't steal and iTunes song and give it to everyone
you know - Ha).
That's totally cool.
Personally, I have plenty of tracks by this artist and I think they're good. I'll agree that song was not their best stuff, but then I didn't pick
it. I know that people telling you to go buy something and spend money sucks, but then all day long we hear about how we have to buy some product or
our lives will suck. It's the way advertizing is.
I think it was a worthy cause and I had enough change in the ashtray of my car to cover it.
Now here's the interesting update.
Adam Curry stated a couple times in his podcast that 2 large record labels contacted him personally to see if he would organize a Bum Rush event for
their known, signed artists. He didn't even organize this at all. He only promote it.
You do realize what that means though. Their fear is showing.
As for the song, well so far it hasn't cracked the iTunes Top 100, but charts in most large markets have not been updated in over 36 hours. In some
smaller markets, they have already. "Mine Again" was at number 5 on the Top 100 in The Netherlands and number 9 in Sweden.
This was a global event of course. Power to the people. Now if we could only "Bum Rush" a new President in. I bet everyone would get onboard that
