Worth watching every second of this video’s 9:23 beginning with the great Frank Zappa, this is an analysis of how marketing breeds out innovation in music.

Update: here’s an interesting (and lengthy) analysis of the video by Cynical Musician (often a good read). As to whether he’s right in his criticisms, be sure to make up your own mind!
