My Favorite 2012 Prediction From The CD Baby Blog Comment Section
  • FRIDAY, DECEMBER 30, 2011

  • Posted by: Joe Puglisi

Because it's a slow news day-- yesterday, CD Baby posted on their DIY Musician blog prompting users to submit their predictions for the music industry in 2012. We picked our favorite from the diverse and well-rounded pool of five (5) total comments.

The prompt:

Speaking of, what do you think are going to be the big stories of 2012? Will Google Music become as dominant as its namesake? Do you think lockers in the cloud are the future of music storage, or is it a lot of hype? Do you think Spotify is going to be good for the music business, or do you share some of the same concerns that some artists have expressed about the service? Share your predictions with us in the comments section, and let us know what youre most looking forward to in the coming year.


Amidst thoughtful answers about Spotify and the function of labels, one sentiment stood above the others.

"The last rock and roll song will be issued on some small indie label, and lost forever. At that point, all the female artists will become professional strippers, and all the guys will become gay rappers." - Alcassaro

Can't wait to see the thesis on this. Looking forward to a ridiculous 2012!
