Metallica Changes Download Tune
· 4

The old joke is that Metallica sold out in 45 minutes—not a concert, just sold out. The wicked bass and drums didn’t score any points with purists when the band did a 180 and decided MTV was good for their career after all, nor were any points scored when they went after Napster. Those who know exactly what I’m talking about will also double-take when I tell you the band is cool with online music these days.

That may be because Trent Reznor and Radiohead were able to prove the concept that downloads are good for business.
