Hellyeah guitarist Tom Maxwell said that new rock bands are facing poor album sales because they make generic, low-quality, "dogshit" music.
Asked about the whole matter, the man told Kaaos TV: "Well, people don't wanna buy dogshit. You know what I mean? I think that's why.
"That's really basically what it comes down to. There's just so much over-saturation and just so many bands, and none of them sound original - everybody sounds like the band you just listened to before.
"I put on a heavy metal radio station here in the States - nine times out of 10 I can't tell who's who. So why would people go out and spend good money on music that fucking sucks?
"I get it why people will buy one or two songs at a time - most records only have one or two good songs nowadays, so why would they wanna go spend all their money on a whole record that sucks ass?
"If you really dig deep and put together a record - from song one until the end - that is just great, and you don't have any songs that you fast-forward to the next song for, then they might need that record, they might need to have all of it, the whole package, not just one song.
"I think with technology nowadays - all the downloading and streaming - it gives people an opportunity to listen to your record and judge whether they wanna go out and buy it or not. So I think if more bands put more time and quality into the writing, they might actually sell more records."
Valid points? Pot calling the kettle black? Both?...
