In an interview with Launch.com, vocalist Chester Bennington explained Linkin Park's decision to take their songs off Apple's iTunes. In the interview, Bennington had this to say on downloading Linkin Park's music;

"We're all going to have to adjust, you know what I'm saying? Eventually everything is going to be purchased online. It's just a matter of how you're going to do it. You know? Do you sell albums by track or do you sell albums to download for one cost when you go in to download the music? Who knows? It's not up to me, it's up to the people to figure out the way they want to do it, and to do it in a way that's not going to destroy the bands that they love."

Best Buy is better.

EDIT: I thought I'd make this post on topic too. I made a huge rant a while ago concerning downloading music, and my stance of the situation is both in support, and not in support. I beleive that if you are a beginning artist, you should use the internet to it's full potential and encourage people to download your material. If you are a fan of an established artist, you should support the band and buy the album.

I agree with Chester 100%. I have all their Mp3s on my hard drive, but I also own all their albums. I&#39;ve got nothing against downloading music, I&#39;m generally in favor of it and I do it regularly myself...but I think that if you support a band and of course, if you could afford it, then you should buy the albums. I -have- downloaded entire albums in the past but in every case, I always make sure I buy the real thing when I&#39;ve got the money.
