With digital distribution and file sharing online, bands have been able to get their music in front of more fans than ever before. But because of file sharing and cheaper downloads, bands also might feel like they can’t make as much money by selling music and will often give away some MP3 tracks.

Would you pay to join a special fan club for bands or to get limited edition music? Share your thoughts in the comments below and I’ll run a selection of the best ones in the next Your Take Roundup.
