The Grand Theory of Music Conspiracy Part 1

Sit down & grab some popcorn.
1The Clash
Revolution Rock

I have a theory for the reason why most bands end up being left wing. It doesn't make sense the way it stands currently. If about 50% of people lean right and 50% of people lean left, why is all (90+%) of the engaging music left wing?
2Dream Theater
Status Seeker

I think the main reason is that the record labels abuse the bands. The music labels hold all of the power in the relationship between the music industry and the bands. Bands will naturally grow to resent these large company entities.
Hymn II: Of Wolf and the Devil

If a band tries to come out as a whistleblower and tell the world how they are being treated, the music industry will simply blacklist them and they will lose their ability to make music (and money).
4In Flames
The Jester's Dance

The only way the band can get back at the record companies is by making music that preaches views against the corrupt and unbalanced practices by which they operate.
Rage of the King

This ironically works somewhat well for the bands as well. When a band is being harassed by the record label, it makes the members of the band more emotionally engaged - albeit traumatized, which makes more emotionally engaging music.
Through Silver In Blood

Bands would never acknowledge any of this publicly because doing so would forever ruin their careers and any chance at making money or gaining fame.
How to Disappear Completely

When you look at the history of most bands, they will use a series of common descriptions that are abnormally consistent: "Burning out from overwork" "Being cheated out of money in a contract" "Being a slave to the system"
8X Japan
I'll Kill You

The bands will rarely elaborate on such provocative statements, which raises the question "why don't they talk about it?"

Or maybe I should just lay off the shrooms.
