Genius punk

Ever since the invention of recorded music, bootleg copies weren't far behind. But bootlegs existed long before records. A song written in the 1630s was played once a year, and only in the Sistine Chapel. The Vatican kept the composition of the piece secret for 150 years until the 14-year-old Mozart listened to the piece twice, transcribed it from memory, and produced the first unauthorised copy of the song.
