This post is a long time coming………….
You might know I’m a serious rocker (or not. I’m alot of things you don’t know hehe!). I adore vintage rock in a big way.
I was heartbroken when AC/DC decided to sell out to Walmart. Yeah, sorry if you had to hear about it on my blog but it’s true. AC/DC has sold out to Walmart.
It’s all quite true.
AC/DC hasn’t released in album in nearly 7 years or so but they decided it would be a SUPER duper idea to release one exclusively to Walmart. But why Muse for the love of god WHY!?
I wondered the same thing.
Turns out Walmart just brought three million copies of the album in one go. Great deal for AC/DC no waiting to actually sell the CD, it’s sold already, all three million, to of all places, Walmart.
Did I mention I hate Walmart? Walmart is a drain on economy among other evils that I won’t begin to get into.
I choose to remember bands like AC/DC as they were so no I won’t indulge in an exclusive Walmart CD by AC/DC no matter how I love them or how great the CD is.
But honestly, in all seriousness, how good could this CD possibly be if Walmart will be carrying it?
Go buy the latest AC/DC CD at Walmart! Hardcore! You can insert a picture of me rolling my eyes here. Is my sarcasm thick enough for you?
To add insult to injury and to pour salt in my already open wound I proceeded to read about how Guns n’ Roses is rumored to be releasing a new album to Walmart too.
Has the world gone mad?
Has hell frozen over and I wasn’t sent the memo?
Next thing you know KISS will be doing a song for a Disney movie!
Who knows maybe Walmart will exhume Joey Ramone for a single. Stranger things are obviously happening as is what’s one more step for those wild and crazy rockers at Walmart.
Indeed these are some things to consider.
It’s when these bands go off the drugs and enter the land of the sober that the bad decisions begin to happen.
Remember kids it’s best to stay on drugs, wreck hotel rooms, bed tons of fan girls, and act wild and crazy but don’t sell out to Walmart. The Muse no likey that idea at all.
This is a public servant announcement from a die hard rock fan.
I will mention that it appears Guns N’ Roses will be releasing Chinese Democracy without the aid of Walmart….praise Jeebus maybe someone is listening up there! However, we won’t BEGIN to get involved in all the problems with Axl’s aging or the fact that Slash and Duff are no shows….that’s a blog for another day!
I leave you with good music that hasn’t been touched by the evil empire!
