really shitty incentives, at least some up with something creative. For $500 you should at the very least get the entire band discography among other things

Holy shit, those incentives are terrible.

$10 for a digital download of ONE song!
$20 for a download of a music video, that's going to end up on youtube anyway!

And the best one...

$500 for a digital download of the song, two shirts, a DVD of the music video, an executive producer credit and a handwritten note. That's fucking shameful.

Dear world: Awesome example of an extremely bad use of Kickstarter. Take note.

I'm so tired of kickstarter.

These are really shitty incentives. However, it appears this kickstarter was created by the media company, not by the band. Maybe that has something to do with it?

I think the main problem with this is the final product is kinda lame. This is easily one of my favorite bands and even I could really care less about seeing a music video for a song that's a year or two old. I love this band and it pains me to say this but I don't think they are going to meet the 3000 dollar goal.

Thanks for the information. I contributed 20$ for my favorite band. Plus, it's my favorite song on Kingprince.

uh... these are probably the worst Kickstarter incentives I've ever seen. I like Cassino and everything, but they're just gonna have to be happy with me just buying their albums.
