SLIPKNOT Frontmann Corey Taylor hat in einem Kerrang Artikel die Labels als primär verantwortlich für das Filsharing erklärt:
"Why would you blame (people who download music)? Half the fucking albums that are out there are shit. I dont download, but at the same time, I dont buy new music cause it all sucks. Okay, theres a handful of bands that I buy, but other than that, I just buy old shitt because old shit is good.
I think its the quality of the product. If record companies would stop giving any fucking mook (idiot) on the street with a fringe a record deal or their own record label, maybe you would sell more fucking albums, dipshits."
