Shadowrun Wiki

The Music Industry in the Sixth World is alive more than ever. With the introduction of the synthlink, the invention of the Song-O-Mat, and the brand new abilities of the musically Awakened, music has reached new highs and sunk to new lows. While record companies and corporations still make billions of nuyen from the talents of various popular artists, there are many fringe and underground musicians who live and die by the message that "music must be free". From street kids pounding at a local gig to the novahot rockers who grace every Trid, music is alive and well.
