And I don't want to hear any shit about Coldplay not having a choice. You know damn well they knew this was going to happen and you know damn well they have enough marketing power to refuse to alienate their fanbase this way.
I didn't care when Celine Dion did this. Who the fuck cares, I wouldn't buy her album even if someone handed me money and drove me to Tower in a limo. But with Coldplay, I would have probably bought this album over iTunes but now: Screw you, I'm buying more yarn with my money.
Grow some balls Chris Martin, if you had any gumption (yeah GUMPTION) you would have threatened to walk instead of associating your work with this insipid plan. I used to stand by their work, even if it's rather generic and unoffensive, but now I truly see them for the corporate ass-licking shill that they are.
And after a bit of digging, here's everyone else that can now kiss my money goodbye.
