NICKELBACK Singer Gets A Job At McDonald's, Blames Illegal Music Downloading

NICKELBACK frontman Chad Kroeger has been named the Canadian spokesman for the new McDonald's Big Mac Meal Tracks promotion, according to Chart Attack. The Big Mac Meal Tracks launch will be on June 8 and will run through July 27.

Speaking at a press conference Thursday (June 3) at the Eaton's Centre in Toronto for Big Mac Meal Tracks, Kroeger discussed the state of the music industry and offered his views on illegal music downloading.

"If trends continue the way they are, there isn't going to be any new music for people to download," said Kroeger. "From a guy who runs a record company, who produces bands and plays in a band, it's a horrifying thought. I love playing my guitar for people and singing for people and I would hate to think that could all be taken away with a couple of clicks on a mouse.

"Young people don't think," he continued. "I'd be surprised if young people know what the hell Sam The Record Man or HMV was. Everyone just goes to the computer, downloads whatever the hell they want, they burn it and then they just play it in their cars. That's killing the music industry."

No bitch, shit music like yours is what ruins the industry
God they suck. Boo fucking hoo.

Well thanks y'all.
I try to walk a fine line sometimes by not trying to offend fans of certain bands that seem to be popular here.
But on some things we can all agree

If a few clicks is all it takes, then please, show me the links.

The record industry's biggest problem is that the folks who run the lables are unwilling to change the way they've been doing business. I heard a label's top guy interviewed a few months ago and I was just shaking my head. These guys apparently believe that if they sit tight and punish the downloaders, things will magically change back to the way they used to be.

The label people do not have a viable vision for the future. They only believe in the past.

It's not his fault. It's all the people who buy the shitty music. People don't want original stuff. They want something familiar.
