Apparently I have all of Metallica's albums on Spotify, which I find sort of funny since I thought Lars didn't really like the Internet at all. Does this have anything to do with Metallica's new label perhaps?

Nah, it just means they're getting money for all of this. Lars doesn't hate the internet, he hates not being rich.

No, that's true, but I just found this sort of interesting since people aren't buying their music. They get some money yes, but no where near what they could get from records or merch.

But it's still something. Lars probably puts the money from Spotify up his bum and gets off over it. Dirty bastard.

I bet Metallica is one of the 100 most profitable bands on Spotify, and they probably make less than $40 a day collectively from Spotify, likely much much much less.

I think Spotify syncs with your library. That's how all of The Mars Volta's and Chris Cornell's solo stuff got on there without any premium member restriction nonsense.

This is, of course, assuming Metallica's discography is in your library to begin with.

I checked, even the Metallica cds I didn't have were on spotify. And I got TMV without having to be a premium member

It's not. Not at all. I only have Master Of Puppets on CD, and it's not even on my PC's library. Plus I just saw Metallica's announcement on Facebook.

From Facebook:

30 years of Metallica now streaming on Spotify!

Metallica, an artist on Spotify.

They were never on it before. I thought it was from people sharing their playlist online.
Spotify links up all my music from the computer to my account without asking.

I somehow got the 30 day trial without even signing up!

Had it for 2 days then it got patched.

Took so much advantage that day hehe.

You can link your music file folder to Spotify and play stuff from there. Other people can find it in search (I think) but can't play it. It's only for your convenience.

Nice. I have been wanting to get into them for a while. Not my sort of music but I like all the songs I've heard.
#25
Lars was pissed at people getting his music for free, but he was more pissed that people were distributing HIS music however THEY wanted. It's his product, it's his choice how it should be distributed, not his fans.

They likely chose to be on Spotify.

I can almost guarantee that Lord Snow is better than anything anyone in this thread listens to.

Yeah I'm listening to them now on Spotify and don't have my external harddrive connected (or actually have much of their stuff).

Usually I couldn't care less about Metallica, but I quite liked St Anger when I borrowed it from someone by my rip of it is all buggered up. Now I can have a listen.
