Once you realize that labels don't have your best interest in mind it's easy to stay indie. I found it very difficult to give up that much control over something that I worked so hard to create.

I'm a small artist and my record label screwed me in so many ways. They started selling my song on the side as a ringtone for $5 each and sold several hundred copies (without my permission). They also algorythmically adjusted their fees for "services" so that I would never reached the cashout withdrawal minimum for sales. It was like doing business with a Casino. It left a bad taste in my mouth. I even started telling people to just pirate it. Then I finally had enough and requested a pull down of content on Everything! Next time i'm putting it on Spotify and giving it away for free. **** the labels. They have as much contempt for the consumers as their own artists.

This is true. Back in the day when I first started I wanted to get signed and hit the road. For one, I was young and dumb and really had no idea how much work it really is to be a working artist. Seriously, it's crazy sometimes. Then when the opportunity came the label said they would release my music globally, but wanted me to pay my own production costs. Huh? So I got to thinking, if the future is digital distribution why do I care about having CDs in every Walmart and gas station in the world? The more I explained it out to myself the less important it became to spend money to be represented by someone else. So I'm still happily indie.

Most of the time, I seek out lesser known bands. I tire of the radio. Shakey Graves is one of my favorites.

Muse is super huge, but their stuff is so freaking good. I would most definitely recommend.

Yeah, but are they in the Top 40 or Top 100? I'm guessing no. Because everything in the top 100 right now sucks complete ass.
