SO LET ME GET THIS STRAIGHT: Not to cast too wide a net here, and this certainly has nothing to do with you, but a whole generation which has grown up downloading music from the interwebs from places like Pirate Bay or other torrent sites get righteously cheesed off when they’re gifted a new release from one of the biggest bands ever.

What you probably haven’t heard is that 81 million people actually downloaded the music (because you had to do that to get it).
