What do you think of "used" albums?

So several music stores buy and sell used cd's. Of course bands don't get money off these kind of sales. Do you think it's right, do you participate in this sort of deal (I gotta be honest and say yes I have bought some and sold in this way before as well as on ebay for albums that are NOT out of print and NOT hard to find, just for the cheapness of it)?

remember that bands get little to no royalties for the cd.  the record gets the most.
besides the band should be happy that they are making fans, if i had a chance if i bought a used cd of a band i really liked depending on the condition, i would buy a new copy later.

wanna support the band? buy a ticket. buy their merch, and tell others about them.

I have bought a used Trash Cd (Alice Cooper) as well as I have bought some used vinyls. I probably have bought more but i can't remember off the top of my head.

i also have heard that the bands get little money for albums also,
but either way used CD's are still exspensive.
like at this one store here : new cd (average) $15-$17 used cd (average) $9-$10.
The Wicked One

at stores, that why i buy almost everything online

though when i vinyl hunt, i can get em at 5 bucks.

oh and i meant 'record company' up there
Dante

I pretty much buy all CDs from the internet!
But I don't like stores buying used CDs.
There is one store that even sell burnt cds!
Tainted Innocence

haha,
how is that not illegal?
The Wicked One

the burnt cds were probably singles of local bands producing their own stuff.

if not, what the shit?

I have a question; why do some people consider bands like Disturbed nu metal? I admit; DWTS and TTF had some rap/hip-hop influences, but does that honestly make a band nu metal? I think Disturbed is one of the best metal band around.....but no where near Iced Earth Wink

Eh, I've always seen Disturbed as hard rock, wouldn't classify them under Metal (their new album is real heavy though), just one thing you gotta remember, who cares what people think of certain bands, as long if you like the music, then it's good.

Expect for Rap.

Rap fails.

Razz

And hip hop that fails too.

By the way who are DWTS and TTF, can't figure it out? Must not be popular bands all I can think of is Down With The Smurfs and Time To Fuck. But I know those aint the bands (probably not bands at all) you are talking bout Set.

As for "does rap/hip hop influences" make a band nu metal question. No it makes a band suck as those are not even forms of good music whatsoever. No talent in the least is needed for rap or hip hop. Though I admit even though I hate it there are some I like. Old Beastie Boys (don't really like their recent stuff), rap artists (haha funny calling them "artists" as that implies having talent) like Emenem and Ice T I can tolerate (I even have the Ice T Body Count "metal" albums). So I may hate rap hip hop mainly for it's untalented performers and anti white people lyrics alot of them seem to have (funny how I don't have a problem with anti black people lyrics from country singers such as Johnny Rebel and David Allen Coe but that's just me), but I can tolerate them, even some of the anti white shit. Ice T had some I think (anti white type lyrics) and I aint white, very little white unfortunately is in my blood line. But oh well.
Tainted Innocence

lmao, dwts and ttf are disturbed albums. (i only know this because my brother listens to them)


and for rap/hip hop?
they should all be burned along with emo's.

Tainted is right; they are Disturbed albums

DWTS = Down With the Sickness [You were close!]
TTF = Ten Thousand Fists

I agree that rap/hip-hop should burn in hell, but I gotta tell ya, Disturbed is the only band I think that have blended met- -I mean hard rock [lol] and rap/hip-hop successfully.

SCORE!

The Sexiest Metalhead

I've heard many call it "pycopathic rap". It's rap, just with "brutal" vocals. Yes, it fucking blows, and it makes me laugh when people believe it's actually good. They used to be backyard wrestlers too.
Tainted Innocence

i think one thing worse then the music,
is the fans.
The Wicked One
