* Old Fogey Hates College Kids

OK, it sounds like an Onion headline - but Gene Simmons says 'college kids' are destroying the music industry.

Yeah... not the morons who keep pushing crap music, not the ones who killed the good acts, not the ones who've made bands and artists quit out of disgust after the MafiAA cooked the books to steal their revenue, but 'college kids.'

The record industry doesn't have a f---ing clue how to make money. It's only their fault for letting foxes get into the henhouse and then wondering why there's no eggs or chickens. Every little college kid, every freshly-scrubbed little kid's face should have been sued off the face of the earth. They should have taken their houses and cars and nipped it right there in the beginning.
Gene, you're the one who doesn't have a 'f--ing clue.' If the music industry hadn't been doing everything in its power (including illegal activities like price fixing) to defraud the customer and trying to stop legitimate use like putting our music onto our iPods, they wouldn't be in this mess.

Of course it doesn't help that the MafiAA's lies about "piracy" have been debunked numerous times anyways.
