The record industry is dying because digital music sales aren't rising fast enough to make up for the decline in physical sales (CDs, vinyl, etc.) File sharing contributes to their drop in sales, but not enough to be the sole reason for killing them.

Shit bands have always been around and always will be.

One of my favourite artists, Devin Townsend tells people to download his music for free if they can't afford it and he's doing pretty well. People like him enough to buy his merch, CDs and see him live.

You can't download merchandise, if you like the band enough then you'd buy their merch.

Merch is always stupidly overpriced, so far as I've seen. I've been to a lot of concerts where they were selling t-shirts or stuff I wanted but only a mug or a diehard fan is going to drop £25 on a t-shirt (close to $40.)

Every metal gig i've been to the t shirts haven't been any more than £30, and that's for a longsleaved. I've paid a lot of money for band merch because i love the music so much. That's the problem with shit music, they're not selling merch, they're trying to create a brand from the artist.

£30 is a lot to pay for a t-shirt, long sleeves or not. I appreciate some people do that, like you clearly, but I don't want to support the fact that band merch costs way too much. I'll buy the music, but I won't pay three album's worth of money for a shirt with a logo.

not concert merch, that stuff is ridiculous, but like shirts, hoodies and accessories that you can find on the band's site or around other places at more reasonable prices.

...I buy the bootleg shirts in the parking lot after the show for $5.

I've looked online, the stuff I found was at least as bad as it was at the concert, and the online selection was terrible. Besides, bootleg stuff is nice, but I could make that myself and it would support the band just as much.
