Intonation troubles found on YouTube

    I like to fart around and play along to tunes on the YouTube and I'm noticing a couple things:

    1. How many bands tune down a half step - which totally p's me off! (I know why they do it - don't flame me. I'm just sayin' it's a pain in the neck for an A440 guy....)

    2. More to the point, I'm noticing that a lot of videos / bands / songs / whatever are slightly out of A440. Are bands really that careless? Was that an intentional decision? Or is that merely an artifact of the YouTube?

    One example I found is The Scorpions' Still Loving You.

    Anyone else notice this?

    -thanx, -mac
