People can be pretty passionate about what format is best when it comes to music and what is most "authentic" when it comes to performances. Based on how much people like to brag about what band they saw live and how many times, we clearly value the authenticity of the live performance above all else. But when we see a performer live, we're judging them based on what we know from the mp3 or record that we've already listened to countless times. What is a song "supposed" to sound like? As music has evolved from solely performance into media, the issue of what the most authentic even is has become increasingly complicated. So which is the most authentic? Watch the episode and tell us what you think!
