    I think Linkin Park said that, but I'm not sure. If Radiohead did too, boy would that be embarassing? :p

    Not entirely wrong :

    This Reuters article reports that certain bands won't agree to sell albums by the song.

    The Red Hot Chili Peppers, Metallica, Green Day and Linkin Park are cited as bands unwilling to agree to Apple's iTunes Music Store terms which require individual song sales. The reason is said to be due to "creative" concerns (according to Mark Reiter with Q Prime Management Co):


    quote:
    "If you download a single, you may ignore the other tracks on the album," he said. "When our artists record a body of work, it's what they deem to be representative of their careers at that time."


    The Reuters article is not available to read anymore.
