Which is why I said that the music business is under total control by the powers that be. Someone obcure has no impact, but someone with an audience potentially could have. That's why for example the career of the Dixie Chicks was over the minute "I'm ashamed to be from the same state as Bush" left Natalie Maines' lips. If they had been obscure they could have said whatever they wanted because nobody would care about it. But if you actually sell records - nope, we can't have that.
