We’ve said it a few times before; pirates are the biggest music fans, and buy more music than ‘legitimate’ consumers.
Luckily there are some artists that get this.
Blink-182 has risen from the dead recently, and the band seems to understand that their fans shouldn’t be treated like thieves.
Instead, they used several unauthorized fan clips that appeared on YouTube to make a clip for their latest single.
“To launch our first single in eight years, AT&T helped us search YouTube for every instance of fans using our music without our permission. And then we rewarded them for it. This film is made out of clips from all those videos. Thanks for being a fan,” they write.
