The voice of the indie bands is usually insignificant comparing to popupar artists (remember Swift and her Tumblr rant against Apple?). The big guys like Spotify or Apple Music can tell them take it or leave it. What are they gonna do?
Looking further into this, the consumers (you, me, and everyone else) are screwed as well. We pay with all hope and intention that our beloved artists will be well supported with royalties coming from our pocket on a monthly basis. How do you feel when the money you hope to give to the artists you like go to some other artists that you.. hate (but a lot more popular)?
