    The only reason this happens in America is because we let it happen…by paying absurd prices for tickets and getting shitty service to boot. Fuck em, fuck em all and you can take your concerts and over hyped garbage “Product” and stick it up your asses. It’s because of you and the greedy cocksuckers in the Record business that have put music out of business. Enjoy your riches all by yourselves.
