Another semi-punk related tidbit. The formerly cool Metallica once again has shown us why they're a bunch of money-grubbing jerks. They've brought lawsuit against Napster. As if they've put out anything worth downloading in the last few years anyway. And to quote, if you use Napster, you: "exhibit the moral fiber of common looters." Screw them. Boycott Metallica. Update:Commodore Sloat writes "It's not punk, but Metallica was once an important band (for better or for worse) for making crunch palatable to mainstream America…. Well now they are suing" Napster and some universities for "conspiring" to, ummmm, not buy their albums, I guess. It's the top story on nofuncharlie.com right now; here's a link to the threaded discussion. "
