I'm a little worried about the numbers, honestly. 800 tracks translates to less than $500 to be split between the label, the artist, and the charting studio. And then groups have 4 or 5 members. And that's a record. There is little financial reason to get music in RBN with these numbers. Hopefully we are moving in the right direction.

I bought the 'AA' song today, and I was not really happy with it to be fair, I bought like 6 tracks from the Metal section and the 'AA' track was the second worst I played from the ones I bought. (The worst being a track from XXT or something, I can't remember the name). But like, I see 'AA's song is more Emo than Metal.
Asking Alexandria is one ****ing amazing band their whole cd except for hiatus (techno of course) should get on there soo many people i know including me its their fave band and they never ****ing get old either. Final Episodes one of my least listened 2 by them lol and emos cant sound as brutal
RB3 will (hopefully) also boost sales once it's available. And being able to play the RBN songs in other modes than Quickplay will certainly help...
So Bodies made about USD 6000... thats still peanuts for bigger labels, the lawyers alone to make the contracts probably cost more
Also you have to get your song released on PS3 to reach these numbers. Sth. you don't really have any influence on (a well known song/artist will help of course)
I'm pumped to see that Asking Alexandria is selling so well. Bodes well for PS3 getting it quickly. I love Stand Up and Scream as a whole and wouldn't mind seeing the entire thing make it's way onto RBN. The Final Episode was my favorite song out of the 3 currently announced but I'd love to see Not the American Average and I Was Once Possibly, Maybe, Perhaps a Cowboy King get on there too.
