Artists don't get paid which in turn leads them to signing much harder contracts which in turn makes them a puppet of these studios and make music according to them which in turn gives us worst songs from the bands we once considered to be the best and our favourite.

Stuck in this vicious circle.

I'd like to see Spotify, Tidal, Google and Apple form their own record labels to sign their own service-exclusive talent and offset the licensing costs imposed upon them by the big four labels.

Smash the record companies. How? Not sure. Perhaps through some way for fans to support artists directly without these parasitic middlemen
