never have and never will thanks to itunes and youtube.
Nah, if I want a specific album I'll just google it, and things like YouTube are good for random browsing. Would get into Spotify but i can't be bothered xD
Who even pays for music? That's like unheard of today.
In the form of Youtube ads, sure...
Phfff, who doesn't have adblock on?
To be honest, almost never except when buying CDs which I still will do occasionally....
I gave google play music, I don't even know why I guess I'm too lazy to look for a good place to download music
I pay for my music. AMA.
I dislike streaming services like Spotify. In order to make a dollar, triple the population of my hometown needs to listen to the same track. Also I hate the idea that I need an active internet connection to listen to something I could easily listen to from my device.
When it comes to independent artists, I always make sure to buy their stuff from Bandcamp. That ensures that most of the money go to them. I even was a Patreon of a specific musician for a while. For commercial artists I use specific music websites or subscription-based ones that allow me to download the files to listen to offline (eMusic). For everything else, there's Noisetrade.
I'll buy a used/like new CD on eBay for like $4 on occasion, but usually only because I can't find a FLAC torrent of it. So usually I do not pay for music.
Do streaming services count? If so then yes.
Other than that, I buy albums from indie artists sometimes.
I don't pirate much of my music (unless you count YouTube)
So I guess yes?
its been a while - spotify/google music for me as of the past few years, but prior to that it was on board storage and around 10 gigs of my fave stuff.
my first mp3 i downloaded was Butthole Surfers - Pepper in prob like 1996ish and never turned back during the napster days.
Never tried streaming services. Always seems like a worse option than clicking related videos on youtube or something. While I may point and laugh at things like facebook and twitter I can sort of understand why some people other than me would use them (unchecked vanity and delusions that they are doing something interesting does seem to be a popular affliction), however to this day I have no earthly idea why spotify got big. It does not even seem to be an ease of use thing, though I guess it could sort of be that.
I guess I pay to go to concerts, and music nights at various places.
My music collection grows at the rate of about 1 album a year, less if the bands I like are not releasing that year. I am still one for albums as well -- good singles are almost look a good riff and things I can happily ignore. Good album or I don't care.
hell no, I love tubemate and will never pay a single cent for another song.
yes. physical cds for everyone but I make excetions for indy artists by buying digital. I also use youtube as well but who doesn't?
The music i listen to isn't sold anywhere.
Just download foobar2000, get vgmstream and game emu player plugin and listen to INFINITE LOOP GAME TUNES.
I'll buy albums I really like to support the artists, but otherwise I just Soulseek everything
What that for? Why would i go there, they have music there?
