The original post

I would like to know what's the reason that drives you to buy music CDs, especially those released by relatively fresh new bands. Consider that it's available cheaply, let's say 3 usd.
Is it because you have heard some kickass song on youtube? Or have you been to that band's concert and enjoyed some amazing moshpit?
I'd like to know whether you would buy CD because you have heard an entire album rather than not being able to find and download two or three songs on the internet(hypotheticaly, I know they'll find their way eventually).

Story behind this question is that we had a discussion within a band whether we should release all songs from new album on the band's web, with our most promising songs on the top of the list. Or whether we should make only few songs available and leave the "top" songs for CDs and concerts only, because nobody would buy it if it's freely downloadable.

I'm fine with whatever way people get their favourite music. It's truth that matters

And if the labels go bust, bands are screwed. They will have to self finance tours, promotion etc.

Many bands do this already.

And they incur thousands of dollars worth of debt to do so.

They also might not be able to get good spots on big festivals or even on tours as supporting acts. Very often it's the power of the bands label and management that facilitates this.

By buying Cds, I support the artists I like, so thay they continue playing the music I like. Plus, I enjoy listening to music on my stereo,
