so you're telling me I have to get in the car, find a "select" record store, probably wait in line with a bunch of weirdos, obtain some stupid mask with an access code in it, then go to a site, plug in the access code, all just so I can hear 1 song about a half hour before the rest of the world?

you know what...SOLD.
