MySpace is a whipping boy of sorts for social media and music websites.  They used to be a great resource for musicians and fans, but now they're just a corporate failure that people (like us) love to hate.  Great article from Brenden Mulligan of TechCrunch called "MySpace Squandered the Only Thing It Had Left"

Our favorite line:

When MySpace launched its Justin Timberlake-heavy redesign, there was a critical aspect missing from every artist page. An asset that bands, record labels, and interns spent countless hours building: their fan base. MySpace decided that they would erase the audience that the bands had built and ask them to start over.

To put it simply, THEY DELETED THE F*CKING FANS.

It was upon realizing this that my brain exploded.
