  • This video tries to make it seem like “selling out” is a new thing. Fans have been complaining about artists selling out since before there was streaming – since before there were CDs – since before Edison played around with wax cylinders.

  • As someone who works in the music industry, I can say for certain that there are some factual inaccuracies here.

    Take it with a grain of salt.
