You probably know the band War On Women. They just released the ripping War On Women album. They directly address women’s rights, harassment, abortion and nasty people on the Internet.
With such pressing topics, the band doesn’t waste time with metaphors or ambiguous introspection. Abortion law is messed up in the USA and the band lets you know. Now is not the time for reserved reflection. It’s time for action.
But, the band’s willingness to say exactly what’s on its mind has made it a lightning rod of controversy. A lot of people love the band’s Crass-like attack… and a lot of people hate them because…. Well, no one can seem to say for sure. But, no doubt, the band has received a pretty constant blast of hate via Internet comments and have also been heckled on stage. (They’ve gotten lots of love, too.)
Because this band has ignited such a firestorm, Punknews’ John Gentile has written a piece contemplating the group, followed up by an interview with vocalist Shawna Potter. You can read it below.

In what is either depressing or exciting news, depending on who you are, last year, for the first time ever, streaming music produced more revenue for the recording industry than physical CD sales. As the AV Club points out, streaming brought the record industry revenue of $1.87 billion in 2014, while CD sales earned it only $1.85 billion. This follows a trend of decline in sales of CDs which has lasted almost a decade.
Overall, digital sales account for about 37 percent of music revenue. Physical sales of all types account for 32 percent of the market, and streaming accounts for about 27 percent. Just so you know, Pandora pays an artist about $90 per 1 million plays while Spotify pays between $.006 and $.0084 per play. In good news, cassette sales were way up in 2014 as compared to 2004. Experts have been silent as to whether this trend will continue.
