The Crap Music Factory

The biggest thing in rock-n-roll is tomorrow on the dole; it must take its toll... not only on the band but on their paying fans.
The fastest rising artist in the charts yet their CD has only one good song; all the rest is regurgitated mess... No wonder pirate downloads have gone to extremes; so which one is obscene.
Artist manufactured on the promise of a dream; it's all love and screams but it is only a scheme to generate a revenue stream for a music industry still operating in the past.
First place is now packing grocery bags at the late night convenience store wondering where they went wrong because no one longs to hear their latest independent song.
Last year's national young talented idols never really stood a chance; because in reality their only x-factor was their ability to generate television votes and thereby dollar notes for executives relaxing on expensive boats.

Unfortunately these dreamers do not understand that in this music factory they will not make any money from their first album's sales but maybe by their third release. But alas the marketing arm has moved along to this year's champ.
So even with her dance moves that shake and groove; she now has gravel rash on her arse because she did not understand it was all just a sales distraction to hide her lack of vocal attraction.
The crap music factory churns; the same old beats butt to different bum cheeks, the same old songs but to different words sung by a model who should not be heard, and music without a soul generated by a drunken money making machine.
Yes... I am glad I did not buy this crap that is wrapped up in marketing slap.

Real artists toil for years before being heard in our ears.
Real music is the domain of the live artists without a lip-sync track.
