A letter to Victory Records

Subject: please stop producing bad music.

Hello Tony,

I recently downloaded a victory records 11 track sampler from the internets. After downloading, I opened the included m3u playlist in winamp, and listened.

What followed after I hit the play button was the worst 37 minutes of music I have listened to this year. The fact that your company marketed this sampler as punk rock is absolutely disgusting, and the fact that this music is actually appreciated by the youth of today really makes you think about the kind of people who are going to be responsible for managing tomorrow’s society.

Tony, I don’t know if you’re a big shot at the company or not. I just found your email in the whois records for victoryrecords.com, but dammit, you really need to get someone to wake up to the kind of crap victory records is producing.

Find good punk rock. Bands that sing about girls and love are not punk rock. If you can’t find good punk rock, please stop marketing your label as a punk label, or better yet: stop producing music all together.

Thank you for your time.

Mike Bailey

    “Produce that asshole.”

    That doesn’t make any kind of sense.

    Well played, Tony. Well played.

    So you take time out of your life to write a well written insult. He replies with a swift F-U. And you spend more time writing an insult.

    Uhh… why? Do you just enjoy being negative sometimes? Should everyone who hates your blog send you an email and let you know? C’mon Mike. 😉

    I provided constructive criticism, and he had no argument.

  5. Jon Says:

    Well, that is one way to look at it.

    I’m not saying it was wrong, just more like why? But if there is one thing I know about humans, it’s that we’re all very good at justifying our own actions to make them right.

    I’m just throwing in another perspective for fun. 🙂

    Something has to be done about the crap kids are calling punk rock.
