This Is Why Anti-piracy Laws Are Stupid

Because I wouldn't have discovered the majority of the music I know without it.
1Deftones
Deftones


Because I wouldn't own every Deftones album if I was never able to listen to them for free first.
2Dangers
Anger


Because the music itself is what matters.
3Refused
Songs to Fan the Flames of Discontent


Because people shouldn't go to jail for enjoying art.
4Barnswallow
Twos


Because many small bands would never been found outside of their areas.
5Death
Symbolic


Because thousands of people would have never heard some of their music without free downloads.
6Loma Prieta
I.V.


Because I would have never went to see some of the bands I have without being able to listen to them first.
7Planning for Burial
Leaving


Because it would have cost me thousands of dollars to buy every single album I have listened to.
8Verse
Aggression


Because I wouldn't have bought your record if I didn't love it first.
9Slipknot
Slipknot


Because without downloads I would not have progressed and this would probably still be one of my favorite bands.
10Aidan Baker
Scalpel


Because many independent artists would not have the global support that they do.
11Discordance Axis
Jouhou


Because we would have never met otherwise.
12Elliott Smith
Elliott Smith


Because art isn't about making money.
13Norma Jean
Redeemer


Because if you rant about how people are stealing your music it just makes you look like a giant douche.
14Botch
American Nervoso


Because many people would still be listening to Norma Jean without any idea that they copied a band that is a million times better.
15Burzum
Filosofem


Because musicians should be happy to be making music.
16Pig Destroyer
Prowler in the Yard


Because you're able to do what you love, even if you still have a day job.
17Wormrot
Abuse


Because how else would a grindcore band from Singapore be able to tour the world?
18Drake
Take Care


Because the music industry makes all of its money off of manufactured trash.
19Nine Inch Nails
The Fragile


Because even musicians themselves hate major record labels.
20Radiohead
In Rainbows


Because it is the RIAA that does the dirty work to fight piracy, not the bands.
21LMFAO
Sorry for Party Rocking


Because, again, the RIAA gives us crap and calls it music.
22Meshuggah
Koloss


Because we're all going to download this anyway.
23Full of Hell
Roots Of Earth Are Consuming My Home


Because real artists want their work appreciated more than they want it bought as a commodity.
24Charles Bronson
Complete Discocrappy


Because piracy is punk as fuck.
25Alcest
Ecailles De Lune


Because practically no one would know who this is without it.
