One Guy Is Responsible For Producing Most Of Your Favorite Songs, And You've Never Even Heard Of Him

Even if you've never heard of Max Martin, there's a good chance he's your favorite pop musician. As a sad revelation about today's music industry, this video introduces us to a man who has more #1 hits than Michael Jackson but you'll never hear on the radio.
