    People asked in the comment section when music became a competition. Music became a competition as soon is it became a business. Capitalism bred better quality bands because everyone wanted to outdo the competition so everyone tried harder to have the best songs and put on the best show. The capitalism aspect of music died about twenty years ago when people went unpunished for "Unauthorized distribution of copyrighted work" time and time again. The laws still exist but our government refuses to enforce the laws.

    The result of non-enforcement of the copyright laws and therefore the death of the capitalist business model for music is there hasn't been a band that has become rock stars in this century. There is no longer any incentive to try because everyone knows their work will just be stolen or distributed without the authorization of those who put in the effort to create it. No incentive has resulted in no more rock bands reaching star status. The only bands doing well these days are the ones doing well on tour and all of them became famous before the advent of massive amounts of unauthorized distribution and duplication of copyrighted works by using the internet to do it. The internet and the cowards using it to break the law will ultimately be responsible for the ruination of not just the music business but the ruination of society. This isn't just another dark age we are living in but a black hole.

    Sounds like you are explaining commercialism. Capitalism would not yield better artistic result

    As for the topic, Gene Simmons has already been a greedy prick that charges fans money just to acknowledge them

    It certainly trimmed down on bands reaching star status, but Internet piracy started in the late 90's and got HUGE by 2002. Every single person in Halifax by 2002 had a computer and was ripping songs on Kazaa. I can think of several bands who became "Rock stars" past this time frame and enjoyed larger success in the latter part of the decade.

    Regarding "cowards using it to break the law" you can just shove that argument.

    By the late 90's before internet downloading, record companies and distributors were already blasting the prices of individual CD's up to $25+, which was nearly a 50% increase from the early 90's. At the time, they had a monopoly on redistributing CD's that people wanted to replace cassettes with, they knew it, and they blasted prices through the roof to greedily increase profit margins, while having most bands locked on deals that saw the bands get no extra revenue for the price increases.

    It was a perfect storm of circumstance that the people had enough and decided the internet was Robin Hood. Its not stealing, like you took an item from a store and now they lost it physically. Its replication technology like Star trek. If you could instantly clone a candy bar with a cloning machine, you would do it.

    KISS has nothing but shitty makeup. They had to dress like S&M trannies to sell records.
