An interesting idea, the website bumrushthecharts.blogspot.com is urging people with I-Tunes accounts to purchase an indie single from the band Black Lab today and push it to #1 on the charts as a ‘stick it to the record industry’ gesture.
How the band is selected is beyond me, (maybe the band made up this entire marketing ploy?) But the idea is similar to people who plan a similar purchasing scheme on Amazon.com. Getting a large number of people to buy your product in a short period of time to make it a “bestseller” has worked well for many authors.
I don’t have an I-Tunes account, so I’m not going to fret about it. If you are interested in proving that a bunch of people can send an indie single to #1, and if you think that will somehow make the record industry jealous, head over to Bum Rush The Charts and show your support.
