So, you’re in a band in the 1990s, and think your music is just PERFECT for one of the world’s biggest record labels, in this case, Sub Pop. You send them your demo on cassette, and eagerly await your contract with a few hundred thousand dollars in advance just waiting for you in the mailbox. They’ll LOVE your songs, and you bet they just can’t wait to sign you! After all, you’re a fan of Nirvana and Soundgarden and even Tad. Fame and fortune will soon be yours, you just know it!
Except, you get this, one of the greatest rejection letters ever.
