The RIAA song

Zug.com is a super funny site, but their RIAA prank is a masterpiece.

I read somewhere that good humor is always a bit painful, which is so true of this prank. Considering how diffcult it is to buy legal DRM-free music, on all platforms, the situation is painfully funny. Zug main-man John Hargrave calls the RIAA, Apple, and Record Studios looking to legally buy music, and finds that it is impossible. But you can get sued.

To complete the picture, there is a free song available, making fun of the RIAA. The lyrics are also free, and all mashups are free too. I plan to play this song at the beginning of every party I host... Go get the song, it is pure brilliance.

The song ends with "...there's 60 million of us".
