Why do musicians have such awful websites?

Why do most musicians have such awful, Flash based websites? I'm sure they look great on the designer's Mac in LA or London's Hoxton Square, but they're appalling when viewed by normal users - they take ages to load even if you have a fast DSL link, you can't bookmark or search them and music invariably warbles in the background whether you want it or not.
Amy Winehouse and Muse's sites are perfect example of something that looks superficially rather cool, but is irritating and unusable in reality. Motorhead's site takes things one stage further and combines Flash with frames. Hideous.
