Indie cred[edit]

Why does "indie cred" redirect here? --JohnnyLurg (talk) 02:10, 11 April 2012 (UTC)

Improvements to Make[edit]

This entry is irrelevant and uninformative. It should be framed by the context that "selling out" was a term that gained traction in popular culture during the 1990s due to a widespread anxiety of authenticity. It should be noted that toward the end of the decade the idea started to lose value and it became more difficult to cite as a legitimate criticism against an artist. While the examples here are factual they don't really illuminate the issue. There should be a section on Fugazi's refusal to put barcodes on their records and Pearl Jam's lawsuit against Ticketmaster. There should be a definite distinction made between"selling out" and the factors an artist must face in light of a quick rise in popularity. Selling out seems to be a specific cultural phenomenon whereas the relationship a popular artist has with her art, her fans and her critics is a more general concern. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 75.83.151.87 (talk) 21:41, 9 May 2012 (UTC)

Roller Derby[edit]

This source was used as citation that "no old white men" made money off the skaters bodies. It doesn't say anything about that, and it's written from a very feminist POV, but may be useful if anyone has time to tidy the section up. BulbaThor (talk) 08:42, 9 June 2012 (UTC)

Metallica[edit]

They did not try to sue their fans. They sued Napster. There is a huge difference. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 66.102.16.22 (talk) 01:10, 13 December 2013 (UTC)
