  • Song Lyrics:
    It's 2006, the consumer's still pissed
    Won't take it anymore so I'm writing a list
    Don't try to resist this paradigm shift
    The music revolution cannot be dismissed
    $18.98 Iggy Pop CD?
    What if I can get it from my sister for free?
    It's all about marketing Clive Davis, see?
    If fans buy the shirt then they get the mp3
    Music was a product, now it is a service
    Major record labels; why are you trying to hurt us?
    Epic's up in my face like, "Don't steal our songs, Lars,"
    While Sony sells the burners that are burning CD-R's
    So Warner, EMI, hear me clearly
    Universal Music, update your circuitry
    They sue little kids downloading hit songs
    They think that makes sense
    When they know that it's wrong

    Hey, Mr. Record Man
    The joke's on you
    Running your label
    Like it was 1992
    Hey, Mr. Record Man,
    Your system can't compete
    It's the New Artist Model

    I know I'm rhyming fast, but the message is clear
    You don't need a million dollars to launch a career
    If your style is unique and you practice what you preach
    Minor Threat and Jello both have things to teach!
    I've got G5 production, concept videos
    Touring with a laptop, rocking packed shows
    The old-school major deal? It makes no sense
    Indentured servitude, the costs are too immense!
    Their finger's in the dam but the crack keeps on growing
    Can't sell bottled water when it's freely flowing
    Record sales slipping, down 8 percent
    Increased download sales, you can't prevent
    Satellite radio and video games
    Changed the terrain, it will never be same
    Did you know in ten years labels won't exist?
    Goodbye DVD's, and compact discs!

    Hey, Mr. Record Man,
    What's wrong with you
    Still living off your catalog
    From 1982
    Hey, Mr. Record Man,
    Your system can't compete
    It's the new artist model

    You know, we just wanted a level playing field.
    You've overcharged us for music for years, and now we're
    Just trying to find a fair balance. I hate to say it, but:
    Welcome to the future.
