I remember listening to the radio when I was younger and really liking a song. I would show up at the record store and pick up the CD.. look at the cover and say "I wonder if I'll like the rest of the album as much as the single on the radio?" More often than not I get home and the rest of the tracks suck and I'm pissed I spent $15 on ONE song that I will actually listen to! The digital media era is so much better being able to preview entire albums and buy single tracks.

let me get this straight. Jovi is upset cus we can purchase songs online now and not an entire album for just ONE song?
wow...No creas en los que dicen que te seguirán como si fueran tu sombra; las sombras desaparecen en la oscuridad...

The reason why kids these days don't enjoy music as much as they did back then is because music THESE DAYS SUCKS!!. I can barely find anything that's good most of the stuff is all auto-tuned or has no talent at all. no meaning to lyrics just a crappy catchy chorus..

One more thing with gas prices stacking up these days who wants to spend gas by driving to the mall to buy an album for one song when you could just hit download on iTunes and get that one song you only want!!
Plus Bon Jovi is on iTunes so why is he bashing apple?

Eh Steve didn't kill the music industry. Bon Jovi's looking for someone in the spotlight to blame.
I listen to my music on a daily basis, and it isn't any less 'magical' then Bon Jovi refers.

Nonetheless, this is the same thing Napster said when they came to be. Music was just too similar, so why pay for the same thing over and over again?
Most of the music nowadays is sub par. The older days produced better music :/

'Albums'? LOL. BJ is talking PRE-CD!
Maybe the 70's and 80', but check the calendar -- it's 2011!
CD's have outsold vinyl since, what, late '80's?
Oh, and GET OFF HIS LAWN!

In the end, Bon Jovi is missing the extra cash they'd get cause you were forced to buy an entire album to get 1 song and hope a few of the rest were worth a crap.
Also, the artists didn't have to share revenue with so many different distributors. The labels shipped out the records and they got paid. Now a person buys a CD and their family rips it. Or they preview it on iTunes and decide to buy 1 or 2 tracks.
Or perhaps he's most upset that Apple has set the global worth if a song to be $ .99/$1.29.

Shut Up Bon Jovi Ur riding royalties until you die. Music is ridiculously priced, one day when your like 80 you'll have a heart attack when you find out music is free in digital form.

Oh that's right, working a regular job. Or graduating middle-school. One or the other.
Bon Jovi took Heavy Metal Rock mainstream with what I call, "Happy Rock." Go watch an old Bon Jovi video - they're all smiles and laughing. That's why I like old-school Metallica - no videos.
Speaking of Happy Rock - think about old-school Metallica though, and you'll realize Jon Bon Jovi is right.
Metallica built a HUGE fan following and were already making millions on their records without a single video, and the songs themselves got little radio air play because the songs were either too graphic or too long. I clearly remember the HUGE hype built up prior to the video for "One" coming out on MTV. That song is over 7 minutes long.. So yeah, I get what Jon is saying.
Metallica's resistance to doing videos (when MTV was really about the music) said a lot about their music and it's quality. You KNEW you were getting an entire kick-*** album when the new Metallica came out.
Nowadays, not so much. Lots of entertainers with one-hit wonders, but very few with hit albums, where 8 out of 12 songs make into the Billboard Top 10. Why? Because all you need is that one big hit, then run it into the ground until the next big hit comes along - rinse and repeat. Even Metallica sucks nowadays..
John Bon Jovi is very powerful in the music industry. If you were trying to make it, having his endorsement would be a big step to getting a record deal - even if he is 80. Everyone understand technology moves on, and JBJ has been an active part of that progression. IMO, that's a good thing. But free digital music in the future?
Put down the pipe, sit down and shut up, little boy.
For you know not.

Hilarious. He's lamenting the fact that people now buy music based on whether they like it or not, instead of whether they like the album art. How unbelievably stupid.
