Those merchandising prices are insane
. Who even pays $20 for big name CDs let alone small bands? Had Motley Crue let you guys simply price your merch at your normal rates I can't imagine they'd be losing out on any noticeable amount of business. That's really scummy. And it's not like they should be hurting for cash.
