I've been reading as much as I can about the music industry over the past few months and I have always wondered something. Ok, so say a commercial band like Bon Jovi or Kiss sell 2 million albums in the first week of a new release. Probably at least a quarter of the people who bought a copy are either not going to like it or are going to get bored of it eventually. Where will all these left over CD's go? Music stores very rarely accept used CD's these days because they already have thousands and thousands of them. It's the same with amazon. You can find say a Green Day CD for only a penny on there. Do these CD's just get thrown into the trash? I am starting to run out of room on my shelf as well and I have a stack of CD's I used to listen to when I was in elementary school and middle school which I would never in a million years listen to again (like Blink 182 and Fall out Boy). I feel like my only option is to just throw these away, since they're practically worthless now. And this isn't even counting the cassetes I own. And this is kind of unrelated, but say Symphony X's Paradise Lost album sells for 7.99 on amazon.com when on the official website, it's worth say 14.98. Does SX's record label not make any money at all from copies sold on amazon which are very underpriced? Even new, unopened copies on amazon can be half of the listed price. I know bands don't directly profit from record sales, but the record label is usually the only way bands can perform world wide and get magazine interviews/ TV appearances/ etc.
