In an opposition to an iTunes-obsessed world, Kid Rock has now encouraged listeners to "steal" his music. In an interview with the BBC, the musician explained why most of his music isn't found on the Apple-oriented music store:

“The internet was an opportunity for everyone to be treated fairly, for the consumer to get a fair price, for the artist to be paid fairly, for the record companies to make some money. But [iTunes is] an old system, where iTunes takes the money, the record company takes the money, and they don’t give it to the artists.”

If that wasn't enough, Kid Rock has just issued this YouTube public service announcement, encouraging everyone to steal not just music, but iPods, cars, and gas. The best (if not the most honest) part: "I'm fuckin' rich. So how can I bitch about someone downloading a song or two?"
