Rock The Vote for Net Neutrality!

I was talking with a friend of mine recently about how independent musicians and artists really need to start making some noise about the threats facing the Internet. This was mainly fueled by a recent article that I passed on written by Parul Desai from the Media Access Project. Looks like it's finally starting to happen!

Save The Internet writes today that "An alliance of singer-songwriters has come together to urge fans to take action before Congress scraps Net Neutrality and harms independent music."

The alliance has formed a band, The Broadband! Excellent.

The Broadband is Kay Hanley, Jill Sobule, and Michelle Lewis.

"Three singer/songwriters met at a Los Angeles recovery center for those suffering from internet-related anger issues. How could Congress vote to destroy one of the only good things left in America? This made no sense! How could so few people be enraged? What were people doing to keep network neutrality the law of the land?

They realized that they had found kindred spirits in one another and needed to work through their newfound political rage. Their counselor suggested that they could channel their frustration through song, interpretative dance, screaming or simply calling Congress over and over. When they discovered that Michelle was afraid of morons, they decided to just do the singing part. And thus The BroadBand was born.

God Save the Internet is their first outing. It will soon be sweeping the nation."

Download the song, Save The Internet, and don't forget about Access!
