It definitely hurts album sales. People have already heard the pre-released songs, so why buy the album? For casual fans, there's no sense of wanting to buy the record for the huge parody. Only hardcore fans like us are going to double dip and pay for songs twice. Most, that aren't the casual fans that buy the album for the huge parody or the hardcore fans, just listen on the internet anyway. With the pre-release, the casual fans that would have bought the album, end up not buying it and just listening to the other half with most of the other people.
But, yeah, that's why it's a bad idea to do pre-released tracks.
