Since I can't post a poll, I'll just ask. How many CDs have you bought since you discovered you could get music for free through filesharing clients and IRC?

I still buy music, but I use Kazaa to assure myself of the quality before I buy it. I mean, I wouldn't wanna buy a Metallica CD thinking it was good. (Just kidding guys) I've bought 8 CDs in the past year, that I can remember.

Hmm, this might sound strange in this world but i don't use file sharing programs as kazaa or some irc channels, I do still buy music, last cd was wednesday last week, and how many cds i have bought since the enormous growth of file sharing programs, no idea actually.

I never bought CDs before filesharing. I bought a couple since, but I mostly get my music off of some program. I'd hear somethin on the radio and decide I'd like to have it, so I'd get it online. Before filesharing, I just wouldn't buy CDs. Copy em from friends and stuff.

Around 130.
I use filesharing programs and have downloaded quite a few songs, but if I like the music enough I buy the album. Even if the artist gets barely any money from the album, the record company will keep them on since the records sell.
I hate giving money to those assholes, but if it keeps musicians that I like making music . . .

Although about 1/3 of the CD's I bought were from independent labels, so that's fine with me.

I'm glad to hear it. Alot of my friends haven't bought any CDs at all in the past year because they download them instead. I hope those RIAA bastards don't get their way. I'll have to buy CDs blindly or just stop buying them altogether, except on the rare occaision one of my friends has an awesome CD I haven't heard.

If anything file sharing had peaked my interest in purchasing CD's, it has by no means decreased the number of CD's I buy.

yes, i suggest everyone download metallica's ST. Anger, then pass it out to all your friends. SCREW YOU LARS !

i think ive bought like 50 cds in this year, mostly because my cds got stolen/lost. but why pay for music when you can get it for free ? :p

yeh, but if you just stopped kicking Lars' ass all the time, maybe they wouldn't keep sending Kirk to steal your shit. Dumbass.

My rule for buying a cd before file sharing was if I hear at least 2 songs off it, and they are all good, I buy it. Now, I just download alot of the band's songs and buy whichever cd seems the best. Becoming X by Sneaker Pimps is next.

Does anyone know when Wreckage by Overseer comes out? I've seen a few different release dates, and some places (amazon) saying it hasn't been released yet. It is sure to be a badass cd.

Not so much after filesharing, but after the RIAA's behavior. Since then I have not bought a single CD and probably will not.

Unless it is:
Indepedent
2nd Hand (CD Warehouse)
Internet Album (www.prickmusic.com)

I am going to give as little money as possible to those people that have treated the customers and consumers like total shit with a large lack of regard for them.

I never have, and never will buy an audio CD. Audio CD's just don't have enough music. Custom burned MP3 CD's is the wave of the future.

I don't use filesharing to preview CDs or anything like that. Just check the CD out at Yahoo and listen to the song samples, much easier/faster than downloading a CD. I do download music if the band is no longer together/active though, otherwise you are just supporting the record companies and the artist gets nothing. Of course, I tend to break my own rules sometimes...

P.S. Ghost: mini disc pwns j00! Catch me in IRC again and we'll discuss...
