Chinese Roads To Be Resurfaced With Unsold Robbie Williams CD'sS

There may be no second acts in American lives, but crappy British pop music is now getting a second life in China. Robbie Williams' dancepop album Rudebox wasn't quite what you'd call a hit, leaving about a million copies sitting in an EMI warehouse. The solution? The company crushed the CD's and is sending the compacted matter to China for use in resurfacing roads and for use in street lights.

While embarrassing, we hope that Mr. Williams can take some solace in the fact that his CD's will now be around much longer than his music. [ Contact Music via CarDomain via CarScoop]
