    Whats the deal with music on the net how can you tell if a site is legit and above board with free music downloads.

    Has anyone got any links to good sites like this

    Plus, who the hell wants to download music for money?!? If I'm paying, I want to have something material, have the cover slip and actual CD rather than just some data.

    I have found it easier to stay the hell away from free music sites.
    They are riddled with virus's. I think I have one now from when my wife tried too download that stupid shnappy song for my 4yr old daughter.
    AVG tells me I have a trojan but it cant deal with it :cool:

    Not a reguar free music site with downloads but you can have your own radio station for a small donation or listen to someone elses for free

    Warning it does take a day or three to get an idea of your preferences but you do get to hear bands you may not have come across otherwise.

    Yea when WINMX got shut down the kids on my island went nuts. They've been looking for free downloads for weeks now.

    If I like something enough to have it at high quality, I'll buy the CD. Same with games, I just like to try before I buy, no sense wasting money on a bollocks game I can't return.

    This is not my personal view but illegal, copyrighted download sites are not to be discussed here. Please continue to talk about legal download sites at your will. Thanks.

    Adam: I didn't link to or give the address of any illegal sites. I simply mentioned bittorrent, which can be used to download things illegally, but isn't illegal in itself. It's just a medium. Similiarly, I mentioned a P2P download program, which is just a program. What you download with it isn't necessarily illegal.

    (I do understand I broke the ToS in that statement, but for a different reason).

    Other programs which aren't pay to use are also perfectly legit. What people choose to do with them, however, usually isn't.

    On topic though, try

    Thats one of my concerns, how do you know whats legit and whats not, just because a site says its legal doesnt necessarily mean that it is!!!

    Am not into stealing from bands who get ripped off left right and centre anyway, but I do think that there must be places on the net for up and coming bands who put up free songs to get thereselves a bit of cheap publicity.

    That would be a neat site. Good free music for bands trying to break into the business. Surely theres got to be someplace like that. Maybe where you can rate the music and give feedback?
