its not about making money, its about metallica SUING their fans, which is flat out greedy and is NOT metal. you dont sue the fans, thats like the ultimate "fuck you" to the metal crowd. "thanks for your support and im glad you like our music, we as musicians get no greater pleasure than knowing that what we do is appreciated by you guys.... oh but we're going to take your ass to court and make you pay us a huge amount of money that you dont have, even if you're a little kid, because we're a bunch of washed up cocksuckers who havent written anything decent since ...And Justice"
i will never give those greedy fucks any money or publicity, albeit through buying their CDs, wearing their shirts, going to their shows, etc. you've gotta draw the line somewhere, you have to let the band know that what they did was not cool.
weird al got it right:
"hush little lars dont say a word
and never mind that noise you heard
its just the fans making bootleg tapes
i hope you choke on your sour grapes
we're in debt
from the internet
screw the fans
we're off to napster napster land"
