But where does Hoobastank stand on the issue?

I know this is going to come off as dickish... But all I could think was, ["WHERE'S JA?!?!'](https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Mo-ddYhXAZc)

Looks like Incubus really stood their ground and dug their toes into the sand on this one

I wonder what Zack de la Rocha is doing these days. He was always pissed off back then, I can only imagine how it is these days.

The problem with advocacy is that it dies too quickly, meanwhile big business is persistent in their cause. Until we recognize this and pick up our causes and make them a priority in our lives, big business and shady politicians win. Doesn't help that people's ability and desire to unify has been severely inhibited by several factors

So artists come out in support and Reddit just gets snarky and makes fun of them... Sounds about right.

"It's the end of the world as we know it!"

Oh great, we've won the war now. Thanks incubus!

I was pretty torn about this issue until I heard Incubus supports Net Neutrality. Turns out I want to be on the right side of history now.

You also take the power of knowledge from everyone. You can limit learning to people who want to pay more, thus the wealthy have all the education. They did it to our colleges. They don't want you intelligent. Next... books? Libraries?

I love all these joke comments saying "yea this will definitely change it". Like you expect just one action to make a difference when in reality it's a group effort full of many actions. If this brings just a little more attention to the problem then it would be worth it. Doesn't hurt to try smh. So many downers in here.

It's always great to see big artists supporting what's right, but at the end of the day it won't matter. The people in charge of making this decision have to decide between doing what's right or taking a massive bribe, and no celebrity is going to affect their decision. Either they're good people or they're greedy pieces of shit.

These comments on reddit are awful. Tons of people complaining how no one is talking about net neutrality and now some famous people (who have the means to increase awareness) are speaking up but reddit shits on them.
8 Dec 2017 02:18 - +27
Im surprised neither Trent Reznor or Maynard were on the list. Especially Reznor's absence. Also suprised Moby isn't on the list either.

I don't really care about these guys' opinions. But can somebody please get Ja Rule's take on Net Neutrality? Where is Ja?
8 Dec 2017 01:22 - +18
We all wait, patiently, for Dave Grohl.

People should probably realize that there is no amount of people protesting the canceling of Net Neutrality that will convince them. *they are perfectly aware of what cancelling NN will do, they do not care who disagrees or how many disagree*. Every person on the planet could be protesting and actually in the streets doing so all simultaneously. It would do nothing to stop their actions. These are not people who wanted their jobs for the purpose of bettering anything or making any progress. They got these jobs from people with a strict desire to screw over society as a whole and benefit a small handful of people. It is not as though they are confused as to how cancelling NN would work and how it would impact people. *they are well aware of this* and as much as we do need to voice our concerns and opinions, we are doing so up against a wall that has been purposefully erected for the intent of separating them from us when the decisions they make, cause bad things to happen. They *want* the bad things to happen and seem likely to keep it going.

Another reason to love Incubus

A strange and hostile response from this subreddit towards people bringing attention to an issue that effects them.
8 Dec 2017 01:56 - +13
Shit it's getting serious now Incubus is involved.
8 Dec 2017 01:44 - +11
Ugh, thought it was a new super group when I started reading.
8 Dec 2017 01:34 - +11
It's funny how it just says "Incubus", like it's the actual demon who signed the letter to support net neutrality.
8 Dec 2017 05:02 - +9
Incubus again proves why they're my favorite band ever
8 Dec 2017 03:48 - +4
On the offchance any of the bands involved are reading this. Thank you. I pirated your music as a child with no disposable income. I enjoy your music to this day and as a result I have bought your albums and gone to gigs in recent years. If it were not for piracy I would not be the fan I am because I would not have had the opportunity to enjoy your music.

Oh shit we got Incubus?

Reddit held the largest online protest in history against Ending net neutrality. Millions of people sent in angry letters to the FCC. It’s obvious that America has spoken and nobody in charge is listening. With Verizon’s ex lawyer running the FCC, this wasn’t a debate to begin with.
