    Sex Pistols. Not that anybody probably cares, but it's odd that the mobiles hanging in the Apples Store advertising iTMS have the Sex Pistols album on them. Also missing Red Hot Chili Peppers.

    Dude. I'm sensing that you have a lot of rage. You might have a feng shui specialist look at your abode. Take a yoga class...or a deep breath. ;)

    Dude, chill. It is only a store. You can always go to Tower Records and buy their music. It is not like it is gone forever.

    In the meantime, drink some green tea.

    I'm still waiting for Mick and the Stones.

    I don't think German artists will be on the store before there is a European version. (But I could be wrong.)

    That's a lot of rage from someone who's not even a true rivethead. I mean come on.. seriously.. velvet acid christ?

    You'd get stomped right out of any self-respecting club by a herd of Wumpscut and Skinny Puppy fans.

    So much for this thread. I guess we'll just have to get some broke bottles and take this out into the parking lot...

    I wonder if Arn could make a list of these if we asked him.

    It would be interesting to see how many bands not on the iTMS have sold over a million records (gone platimum before).

    You listed several People who are in iTMS. 50 Cent, Eminem, and some others. (Some artists disappear when the server they are on is updated)

    We Also need Soundtracks... From;

    forgive me if any of these are in there. I'm at work (and unable to access the store on my PC) and I haven't looked in a couple of days, but I don't remember seeing these:

    I'm in an electronic/dance/house mood:
    DJ Sammy
    DJ Venom
    Sash (hm, I actually think they're french)
    Propellerheads

    When I'm in my classical/soundtrack mood:
    Lord of the Rings soundtracks
    Star Trek soundtracks
    Shostokovich (sp?)
    Henry Mancini
    More of Danny Elfman's works (I think he already has some in there)

    that's all I can remember off the top of my head..

    Re: Techno

    They do have Paul Oakenfolds studio album but i agree that they should have others as well. I'm really happy that Moby was added. Some other artists they need are:

    Sasha (you can't mention John Digweed without Sasha!) check out this album if you haven't already, it's awesome!
    God Lives Underwater (the rest of their albums)
    Aphex Twin

    that's all i can think of right now

    Nicely Done! It's nice to see someone with some good taste. Sadly, I don't think we'll ever get any of our stuff up there. I think Subpop or Matador is about as far as it will ever go. I'd love to see them pick up Kill Rock Stars, Up, and especially Touch and Go. Some Warp titles would be nice too. I'm not holding my breath though. Cheers.
