Everyone has valid arguments so far with regards to this,but I think Southern has every right to be pissed off.I don't know what the price of the cd was before shipping,but being that both Southern and Cheap Trick are in the U.S.,and it was only a cd,I can't imagine it was very much.So,even if the cd was $15.99 before shipping(just a conservative guess),how can anyone justify it being sold for half the price only a month later.It's situations like this that drive people down the illegal download road.Then the bands piss and moan that they are getting ripped off and losing money.Maybe they need to look at the current economic climate and realize that fewer and fewer people have disposable income to just spend on a whim.It's like this bullshit of releasing a cd with a European,Japanese and now a Walmart and iTunes bonus track.Do the record companies actually think the average consumer is going to go out and buy the same cd four times for a couple of extra songs?Bands need to remember that they are only where they are because of the fans.I find it hard to believe that a veteran band like Cheap Trick wasn't aware of the Best Buy sale price.For a national chain to put something on sale,they are going to have to commit to a lot of product,and it's not a decision they are going to make overnight.If I were Southern,I would write the band,voice his displeasure,and see if they will give him any kind of refund for the difference.Just my take on this.

P.S. I have heard the new Cheap Trick,and $7.99 is still a ripoff.Aside from a couple of tracks,nothing at all memorable.
