NEW YORK (MainStreet) – If you’re one of the early Napster users who stopped illegally downloading music after the record labels started cracking down, today’s deal is sort of a blast from the past.
Through the end of the month, you can download music for free, and it’s all legitimate. The deal comes courtesy of Spin magazine, which is offering free iTunes downloads on 16 of the songs from its “Best of 2010” issue. In other words, you’re not getting the bargain bin stuff – these are certified as quality tracks by a real music magazine.
To get the downloads, just visit Spin’s website to see the coupon code and follow the instructions. The only requirement is that you download iTunes and set up a free account if you don’t already have one. You can view the full list of the songs on Spin’s website, which includes artists like Grinderman, Ted Leo, Wavves and several other bands I’ve never heard of.
The offer expires Jan. 31, so get onto iTunes now and find out what the kids are listening to these days.
