A large group of bloggers and podcasters are urging their fans to join together today March 22nd and make an independently released track #1 on the iTunes chart with a campaign titled "Bum Rush The Charts"
The beneficiary track is "Mine Again" by the band San Francisco band Black Lab. The act was chosen for the campaign in part because it was dropped from two major record labels (Geffen and Sony/Epic) and then had to fight to get their masters back. By making Black Lab #1,even if just for today, organizers hope to send a message to the major labels both about the multitude of great music they fail to support and the power in new independent media. We'll keep ya posted.
