Bum Rush the Charts

Bum Rush the Charts is a grassroots effort to stick it to the Man (the Man being the RIAA and Major Labels in this case). In their own words it is:

Podcasting gets little respect from traditional media. To them we're little more than a joke, than amateurs. What they don't understand is that podcasting is more than just a delivery mechanism - it's a social movement. People are growing sick of the watered-down, cookie-cutter content that networks and record companies expect us to enjoy. We want and deserve more. Big corporate media derives its power by having the
resources to mass market their product in a unified effort, which is why they think they're better than us. On March 22, 2007, we're going to give you a chance to change that.

Pretty noble idea, eh?

So on March 22nd go to the Itunes Music store, and Purchase the song "Mine Again" by "Black Lab". The important thing about this song is that the band was drop by not one but two major labels.

See you on the 22nd,
