Apple Music: Please Add Song Credits to your Platform!
With the touch of a button we can stream tracks, explore genres, artists and albums, and even read the lyrics of the songs we listen to within the Apple Music platform...but nowhere can listeners find the names of the songwriters, musicians, engineers and producers who created the music. It's not just about giving credit where credit is due, it’s about giving us the experience we want as music consumers. Apple tags tracks with a very limited amount of metadata in order to identify songs, but more cohesive and complete third-party music credit databases exist...with a simple link, listeners could have user-facing song credits accessible within the Apple Music app. Apple, we CARE about the people who create our music. Please add song credits to your platform!
Petition to The National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA)
Expand College Pep Bands at the NCAA Tournament
Currently, the NCAA Basketball Tournament prohibits the use of electronic instruments with amplification and also limits the band to 29 students only. Many students are left at home and are unable to participate in this amazing opportunity to represent their school. Bands are forced to make adjustments to replace electric bass players with low brass players that may or may not exist at their school and deserving seniors who have given everything to their band program and team are forced to sit out due to the size restrictions. Non-football schools depend on their pep band to be the face of their music program in the athletic world and it is unfair that these schools have to adopt a new model just for the NCAA tournament. Electronic amplification is allowed throughout the season and at conference tournaments and pep bands have grown to include nearly 150 students at many schools. These limitations take away some of the critical pieces that fans love. We'd like your help in requesting the NCAA to change the restrictions on college pep bands during the NCAA Tournament by: 1) Increasing the size of the band from 29 members to 40 members 2) Allowing the use of electronic amplification for bands to use bass guitars, keyboards, violins and more. These two minor changes would allow college pep bands to produce a more balanced sound, help bring more students on unique instruments that need amplification and provide a more realistic representation of the kind of performance you'd find at the band's home games.

Petition to Warner Brothers, Orion Pictures, Milos Forman, Warner Home Video, Michael Hausman, Bertil Ohlsson, The Criterion Collection
Have the Theatrical Cut of Amadeus (1984) released on bluray
The Theatrical Cut of Amadeus has, basically, been extinct since the inferior Director's Cut was released. Still to this day, there hasn't been a bluray release of the Theatrical Cut, the version fans and critics have loved since 1984. The new generation has been down-grading this masterpiece because of the added scenes and fans cannot enjoy it in all its glory like they did back in the day. These factors have affected the film's legacy and now it has become a forgotten masterpiece. Warner Bros, as well with the director Milos Forman and Orion Pictures, can act to make a difference and release the Theatrical Cut in a new restoration, that will be glorious to watch. Also, with the addition of Dolby Atmos and 4K, this could bring much more life into the picture and offer a greater experience. The PG rating will also attract young audiences into this film and learn the true beauty of cinema, as opposed to the longer, rated R version of the film that mostly patient adults will find enjoyment in. The Original Theatrical Cut has always been my favorite film, since I first saw it on DVD when I was 11 years old. I have had other people borrow my copy and they too love this movie as much as I do. I watched it with my whole family and we all gazed up at our TV screen in wonder. Unfortunately the Theatrical Cut is very rare to come across these days, being overshadowed by the inferior Director's Cut that has already been transfered to bluray. I don't want to have the original cut become extinct and WE, the fans of the academy award winning masterpiece, can prevent that from happening by insisting on a new restoration of the Theatrical Cut we love and contacting the studio and director. Please sign this petition as this is very personal to me and many others. Just one signature from you can hugely helps us bring this cut back to life. Your signature COUNTS.
Petition to Donald Trump
Make the US National Anthem 'Funkytown' by Lipps Inc.
It is my proud belief as a citizen of the wonderful United States of America that we deserve better. No, not in a political or economic sense. We need a new national anthem. Our current anthem is one so long and boring, we don't even sing most of it. Every time it plays, we rise to our feet in solemn silence, often wishing we could be somewhere else, listening to literally anything besides an overenthusiastic and tone-deaf volunteer belt it out, or even worse, be forced to mumble-sing words like 'o'er' as best we can. It is evident we need something...new. Something better. Something good. Something like Funkytown by Lipps Inc. Yes, the full 7+ minute version. I guarantee you everyone will revel in pride for their great nation both while singing this God-given banger and while jamming the hell out during the lovingly constructed instrumental intermissions artfully placed throughout the song. I believe Funkytown, in every essence of its being, is a true reflection of America, its people, its ideals, and its sick beats. So please, show your pride for this wonderful country. Sign this petition, and I will deliver it to Donny Johnny Trump himself, demanding that, in an act of pure justice, he change the national anthem to Lipps Inc.'s masterpiece.
Petition to Why Don't We
Keep Limelight VIP Passes
Why Don't We is getting rid of "Limelight" VIP passes to their shows. These passes were a way for fans to connect with the band on a more personal level. It's a very special connection that most fans deserve. It's devistating and heartbreaking that they're taking this away from us. If you don't know what a Limelight VIP pass is, it is a $199 vip pass to one why don't we concert. Only 5 were given out at each concert. It had tons of perks such as early entry, merch, discounts, follows from the boys, meet & greet, souncheck, and just being able to hang out with the boys too. Help bring this opportunity back to the truly dedicated fans that need it. Sign this petition today.

Nirvana Reunion w/ Shaun Morgan (Seether) on Vocals
I recently realized how similar Shaun Morgan, the vocalist of the hard rock band Seether, sings like Kurt Cobain. Nirvana fans have been wishing for a reunion tour for ages, and I think Shaun would be the perfect candidate. Hopefully we can see him take on lead vocals in the future if we can get enough people to make the idea known.Listen to Shaun's vocals here (cover of Heart Shaped Box)https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=720RA3-DWFU Please share this petition with your friends!
Petition to Atlantic Records
Atlantic Records Drop Danielle Bregoli Contract
You're giving fame to people that don't deserve it and to a person who can't behave herself. You Atlantic Records call yourself a company with standards! You have so far have proven to have none at all, by giving her a contract. there are plenty of better and more talent musicians in the streets of Chicago, no less! If being disrespectful is how you get ahead in life, where are my billion dollars? I kindly ask that you drop her like it's hot! I don't need your money or pity!
