Dumb, but compelled

One of the biggest wake-up calls of my career was when I saw a record contract. I said, ‘Wait — you sell it for $18.98 and I make 80 cents? And I have to pay you back the money you lent me to make it and then you own it? Who the fuck made that rule? Oh! The record labels made it because artists are dumb and they’ll sign anything’ — like I did."

Trent Reznor, Nine Inch Nails

Found on Big Fun, but originally at Underwire.
