MySpaceMusic bands with FREE mp3 downloads

Most bands provide music you can listen to on a player, but few allow fans to download and save their songs. It's the old fashioned "charge for every fart the artist produces" mentality.

Here are some that abstain from such archaic, self-defeating, anti-promotional protectionism.

These bands know that free music is the key to getting new fans, blogospheric buzz, and customer loyalty. Free music hooks them, then they may be willing to pay for unfree music later, if they develop a craving for your sounds and a collector's mentality.

To search for any band, just go to MySpaceMusic, type in the names, click the dropdown menu to "Music", click on Search, and voila~!
