Green Day: cashing in on P2P with pre-printed CD-Rs

Peter Rojas
Green Day CD-Rs

Back in the halcyon days of the mid-Nineties (when we was punk) we actually recall scrawling the word "SELLOUTS!" on the covers of the Green Day LPs that turned up at that college radio station we deejayed at. Which is why it's ever-so-hard to dish out props to Green Day for encouraging (and cashing in on) people downloading their music online with this set of blank CD-Rs that come with custom-printed Green Day artwork, so your "mixes" don't have to look quite so homemade. So we'll give 'em some props, but we're now gonna scrawl "DIY or Die" on these if we ever see them for sale in a store.
