The music industry is hopelessly corrupt. The music industry is also obsolete--it no longer functions as a useful vehicle for the creation and distribution of music. The purpose of this website, maintained by Rock & Rap Confidential, is to be a connecting point where all the evidence that we no longer need the music industry can be centralized for easy access by the world's music communities.

While Napster and other computer technologies have laid bare the fact that the music industry is worthless, there's much more to the story and we want to present it all. Your involvement will make that possible. Send us your feedback, your horror stories, and, above all, your vision of new ways music can be created and distributed for the mutual benefit of artists and fans. Send us any articles or quotes you think should be up on this site. Thanks!
