Title text: I don't know what's worse - that there exists broken-hard-drive-sound techno, or that it's not half bad.
Cueball points out that due to the repetitive nature of techno music, the iTunes 15 second sample can be used to recreate the entire song. This is for the many repetitions in techno music, usually repeating it 4 (or other powers of two) times.
The title text refers to the clicking and grinding noises of a dying hard drive, a sound similar to some techno songs. The title text suggests this actually exists: an example can be found here.

- Cueball: Wait, you're buying techno on iTunes?
- Megan: Yeah. So?
- Cueball: Couldn't you just loop the 15-second free sample 20 times and get basically the same thing?
