Opinions ?

Basically the black keys are speaking about how they turned down 200,000 british pounds when they were broke because they thought that would be selling out.


In my opinion, if a company offers you $ to license your original track to advertize their product and you don't have to edit it or include some extra verse about how great that specific brand is, it's definitely not selling out, that's actually a big achievement! Some company wants to use your art to tie to their brand for advertizing, you must be doing something right. All the better if your music is kick ass and honest like the black keys.

I'm not talking about making a shitty guetta record for the specific goal of getting a licensing deal. I'm saying if you made creative music and all of a sudden it's popular, like Bon iver or someone.

What do you guys think about this. I'd be super honored if even the smallest of companies wanted to license music that I make in my basement for no money.

So like I said depending on if your an NCM or Officer and your rank, you probably make at least $50,000 a year but most likely more. And depending on if you live at CFB Kingston your cost of living is probably very low as well, but even if you weren't cost of living in Kingston isn't that bad. Its only $30 which is cheaper than most nights at Stereo. Most of us on here who post about Stereo have put out probably hundreds and hundreds of dollars clubbing there just this year alone, and have never really complained for the most part. I know I sure as hell have.

Maybe they didn't want to endorse what the company proposing the licensing agreement sold? Because they sure as heck had no problem licensing Tighten Up to Molson before the album was released.




seems like selling out would include endorsing a product that kills more people a year than aids and cancer combined n'est-ce pas? just sayin'.

although 1 Million $ is a life-changing amount of money, especially if you were to donate it to those in need or less fortunate.
