The Crowdbands website is an innovative democratic online record label that allows its users to vote on all major industry decisions concerning signed bands.

After paying an annual fee, Crowdbands website users get to help run the label's signed bands by voting on everything from which songs get made into singles to how much to charge for online songs. The payoff for this managerial assistance is that the most active contributors get special 'VIP' perks like free CDs and backstage passes. For many fans, simply having a role in the way their favorite bands operate might be reward enough.
