The reason why the quality of music today sucks.
Overmarketing a bunch of karaoke singers and ignoring the talented artists will surely bring disaster upon the record industry.
The result of:
+ Harry Potter merchandise
+ Pokémon's downfall
+ Dragon Ball Z's hate
+ Cartoon Network's uptardedness
+ Over-obsessed fanboys
Everytime there is a product without millions of crap to suck out of it, a fat-cat businessman is born.
