Yeah, there are more than a few bands in my collection now who I stumbled across on Youtube, listened to for a bit and then went and bought their album. Some of those were direct sales as well, as they were small bands I'd likely never have heard of if I hadn't come across them on Youtube (At least one of the bands didn't even have an english language website).
