Default No piece of master tape with Wasting Light

I just bought the new Foo Fighters album and it said that a piece of master tape was included in the packaging, but it wasn't in there.

What should I do?

Go to store and tell 'em to get you a new one and then check right there if there's one in there.
At least give it a try-I mean you got nothing to lose.

Don't worry about it. Enjoy the new album, and don't let not getting a piece of 2" tape ruin your day.

Personally, I would return it to the store and request a new copy with the tape.

We can't help you out here I am afraid.

Honestly, it's absolutely no big deal at all. It's not like it's a photograph negative or something. It's literally an insignificant piece of tape. I bought two copies, I'll send you a piece of mine if you really want it.

I got a piece here in the UK. I think it's a pre-order thing, and then some random copies get bits of it too.

I got no warning in the packaging though, so I imagine loads of people have not noticed it or thrown it out.

While waiting for my deluxe set to arrive by snailmail I went to Best Buy and picked up the 2cd edition. The wrapper had a sticker that indicated there was a piece of tape included. Sure enough, there was a small strip, but I totally would have missed it had I not known what to look for. Alot smaller than I expected. I am sure quite a few just tossed it or it fell out upon first leaf through of the booklet.

I bought the CD at HMV and I didn't get one, so your aren't alone but I didn't even realise everybody got one till tonight, so it's not a big deal.

Did you look in the booklet? Mine was in the middle of the booklet if I remember correctly.

Default No Master Tape, Gutted!

The reason I'm gutted the most is my friend opened it in the Apple Store, I have a feeling it's floating about in there. And I think I've threw my receipt away (or it's downstairs). I think I may return it if I find the receipt and goto HMV and buy it. I would really like some tape.

Cheers
Chris

I didn't get the tape either. I bought it at best buy, and the packaging said it would be in there. It wouldn't be such a big deal, but i was also at the one night only fail, and so i am a little bummed. still love the foos, just a little disappointed.

It was hard to find mine in the cd I bought at Best Buy. It was in the booklet and it was almost the same color as the pages it was between. If you can't find them, it probably fell out when you opened it.
