I want a website or program to download free music, but I don’t want to risk getting a virus. One example being Limewire, I don’t trust it. Any ideas?

      Couldn't find any of the songs I wanted on there :/ musicjacker is pretty good for anyone wanting a program for downloading music, I found all the songs I wanted on there so I'd recommend using that instead...

      http://musicjacker.com

      It's safe too btw

    I don't know about software, but I tried some suggestions found on this page and http://www.mp3dld.com seems the most legit. I even ran a anti-virus check via siteadvisor and norton security web and it's 100% virus free! Thank you makeuseof community !

    Get latest version of *Firefox*, then the Addon called *DownThemAll* (Firefox mass downloader - best addon!) go to *Youtube*.
    Choose and click on the song you want and the "DownThemAl" icon will flicker black & red on the Firefox toolbar.
    Click on the icon and you can download anything you want, including multiple downloads to your folder of your choosing.
    Get the *VLC* media player as it compatible with everything out there.
    All the above programs are OpenSource and free.

      10$ for what?
      I paid *nothing* for all the software.
      You can always donate, of course.

    I followed John Emerald's suggestion and tried http://www.mp3dld.com . Really nice experience mostly due to the fact that there are no pop-ups or annoying ads. I recommend it!

    There's a really easy way
    Open up youtube, and find the song that you want
    In a new tab open Youtube to mp3 converter
    Get the URL from th youtube tab and go back to youtube to mp3 converter and paste it the the text box and click convert, after that check that you have he right song (the title will be on there) and click download.

    Spotify is the best I think. You do not really download, but stream. There loads of music for free.
    The website Grooveshark does that too.

    And if you really want to download music to your PC Jamendo may be the right option http://www.jamendo.com/en

    i do not recall bear share of being free half the songs you pick out on there you have to pay at least 99 cents in order to download the song so that is not free and bear share does give viruses i just need something simple and easy and that does not give viruses thanks

    i usually download my music on Baidu but sometimes it comes up really weird like you have to save this link and it will directly go on your desktop. After that you have to double click it it will go on your desktop just like that. BUT! it will not be on your Itunes yet... it is on your desktop and downloads. Double click the small icon on our desktop and your dream of your song will appear on your Itunes.

    I recommend the mp3Skull website. They have loads of free music of all types and categories.  Just type the name of the artiste into the search window and mp3 will give you a selection of freely downloadable songs. You  can also search for one particular song by name. They also have a pop-up music player so you can listen to the song(s) before downloading it/them. This site is VERY easy to use.  Happy listening!  Cleo

    What I would suggest is this-

    Hey, do you want free iTunes gift cards?  An awesome app that is completely free and legitimate is JunoWallet.  With the app you can earn gift cards for downloading apps and trying them.  You can also get money many other ways such as through a referral system.  When u are signing up please enter the code JC408266 to get u and me money.  I hope u try it.  Ps don't believe the people that say you'll get tons of money with their code.  This app is amazing. And I really do use it.  Thanks 
    Get iTunes giftcards with this, and buy your music with this. 
    ANY WEBSITE OFFERING FREE MUSIC IS ILLEGAL

    • Tina
      February 24, 2012 at 1:55 pm

      Joe,

      your final statement simply isn't true! There are a lot of websites offering legal free music downloads.

      Examples are Bandcamp, Free Music Archive, SoundCloud, Jamendo, NoiseTrade, many independent netlabels and many, many more resources.

    I use a program called musicjacker to get most of my music. You can search for music to download with it's 'musicscraper' feature but it also enabled you to download music from sites like myspace, youtube and facebook. So, you can pretty much get any song you want with it.

    You can get it from http://musicjacker.com, hope this helps you!

    My web site http://www.ajaxbeats.com offers free mp3 downloads.   I am a Brooklyn based Drum N Bass / Hip Hop producer.  I currently have 93 mp3's for download.  13 drum N Bass mixes that I made.  A 9 track Dnb Album that i produced.  Count less hip hop instrumentals that I produced.  Even A few freestyles over some popular tunes in the hip hop world.  I update my site on a daily basis.  You can also get information on my upcoming events in NYC & abroad.  Stop by the site or even come out to a rave.  Clicking a link wont cost you anything.

    I personally would find first a good I.P. blocker and or I.P. mask program. OR get a really cheap ass file sharing network. Like kaza or limewire clone site. I`ve seen them as low as six dollar a month all you can download. But atleast those sights your paying for virus free downloads there. And your covered as far as paying for the service. Atleast you will have proof your paying something if those jew feds coming after you wanting money for there own pockets. Just a thought. c.y.a. my friend.

    There are lot of sites and programs out there which you can use to download free music the point is that sooner or later you end up with a virus or downloading poor quality music or in trouble for downloading music illegally. I've had bad experiences with this kind of sites, fortunately a couple of weeks ago I discovered a pretty cool site from which I download all the music I want 100% free and legally, in cases you want to check it out it is here: http://bit.ly/gs1Zyl

    This one's easy.

    Be sure NOT to type in "www" because it won't work that way.

    I found this website I don't know how long ago, probably like a year, maybe a year and a half.
    This website is in my opinion the best place to go to if you want free music now without having to go through all that crap with the registration, and the toolbars, and the cookies, and the logins, and the security, ect.

    All you have to do is search, click, and choose to listen now, or save the song for later.
    But beware (not much though), some people, for some reason, think it's a good idea to post spam (fake songs, "way-off" frequencies, bits of songs, "tape-recorder-held-up-to-an-AM-radio"-esque bad quality, incomplete songs, corrupt files, mismatched songs/files, dead links, ect...), just check the duration and other specs and credentials in the description and you oughta be fine.

      I like keeping my music on my ipod also and add/delete music without losing anything else stored on it. So i was intro'd to "copytrans" there is a lil mire on the name i cant recall at this moment, but Google it and it will come up. You transfer anything you want back & forth w/o losing anything on your ipod. It syncs to ipod just like itunes, but doesnt limit what u can do. Check it out, its great!!

    • Sylviag84
      July 1, 2011 at 10:34 pm

      victor you can download this thing called copytrans you might have to pay for it but its not that expensive look into it and see if this is what you are looking for it takes everything from your ipod and transfers everything to your itunes so that when you sync you ipod it wont delete everything

    Before I give my answer, I should let you know that this method I'm about to show you isn't exactly legal and that I am not saying you should do this at all.

    To answer your question, what you could do (theoretically) is download a Firefox plugin called DownloadHelper and go to a site like YouTube or Grooveshark. Once on one of those sites, find a song you want, let it load, and click DownloadHelper to download it. You may have to convert the downloaded file to mp3 but I assure you this is much safer than using a program like Limewire. :)

    • rachelle
      July 2, 2010 at 9:26 pm

      Does this work if you want to download just the audio from a YouTube video? My old iPod doesn't have video.

    • Dscarmardo
      July 3, 2010 at 3:11 am

      If you just want to rip the audio, you need to grab audacity. i twill let you record the audio that is being played through your pc speakers, and you can cut and edit the audio stream.

      Very simple to use, and allows you to label the songs how you want them to be labeled.

    • Steve Campbell
      July 3, 2010 at 7:37 pm

      If you convert the file to mp3 you should just have audio. If that doesn't
      work I know there are programs that can extract the audio from youtube
      videos.

    • Aaron Couch
      July 3, 2010 at 11:13 am

      I do the same via Orbit Downloader! Grooveshark is great. I am curious though, is there a way to still acquire a virus through this method?

    • Aibek
      July 3, 2010 at 11:33 am

      I doubt you can get a virus through a Grooveshark because I am sure
      Grooveshark team check the tracks before posting them on the site.
      The OrbitDownloader is a bit different on the other hand. Since you're
      able to use it on many websites beyond their control you may get an
      infected file if used on unsafe website.

      Aibek

    • Steve Campbell
      July 3, 2010 at 7:39 pm

      Orbit Downloader is another great program for this. So long as you're
      downloading mp3s or flash videos I highly doubt you could get a virus. If
      you did it would probably mean that Grooveshark or Youtube somehow had a
      corrupt file uploaded, which I'd say is rare.

      @Skotstives, there are many many ays to convert video/audio files to MP3

      from Youtube or Grooveshark to MP3 format?'

    • Harrisonwillingham
      July 30, 2011 at 4:56 am

      You aren't very smart. Limewire, Ares, Frostwire, all this shit is legitimate. You get viruses because you don't look at the name of the website. That's why Limewire was shut down. So many people made look-alike websites that you downloaded from that the REAL Lime received lawsuits. You don't get viruses when you know what you're dealing with.

      Man.....I agree about Grooveshark. I'm over here in S.Korea teaching English and for some stupid reason I can't get Pandora (and some other sites) over here. Back in the US Pandora was always my favorite site. But since I discovered Grooveshark I'm not so sure that I don't like it better. Pandora might still be better to discover music but if you know what you're looking for I really 'groove' on Grooveshark. I don't know how they do it. The only artist I've never found tons of music from is Bonnie Rait.

      Grooveshark recently also added a feature to help you discover music -- I think it's called "radio." And I agree, Grooveshark is amazing and so much better than Pandora.

    • Jim Cochrane
      November 2, 2010 at 8:42 pm

      Art, I see you are over there in Korea teaching English. Ever heard of the Student's New Phrase Book? It's a winner. A 170 page pamphlet filled brim full of good phrases. A dictionary tells you the meaning of words but the Phrase book I speak of shows you how to use them. I know it costs £14.88, but it's worth every penny.

      I agree completely with you on that. Pandora has a much better radio or discover feature, but I really like Grooveshark overall. I have gotten music off Grooveshark for free using the Orbit Downloader plugin in Firefox which you can find here http://bit.ly/ifhryU

    I stopped download music or buying music because when I listen to it, I always seem to skip songs all the time that I don't like any more or I forget to download new songs that come out. My alternative is to listen to online radio. I've found a few stations I like, and they always play great music. Jelli.net is a pretty good site as well - you actually get to vote for the songs being played. http://www.makeuseof.com/tag/jelli-radioactive-free-music-streaming-site/

    Just an alternative to downloading.

      After I installed AWN on my Linux box, I discovered Pandora, another internet radio that very intelligently selects music according to your tastes.

    • Jack Cola
      July 10, 2010 at 1:29 am

      I used to love Pandora, but then they blocked it in Australia. I then found Slacker Radio, but that too got blocked. Now I am on to Internet Radio.

      You could always listen to a song and record it using Audacity?

      July 10, 2010 at 2:11 am

      Why would stuff like that get blocked? I guess I'm fortunate to be living in the USA, but that seems to be a negative these days. I'll continue to use Pandora until it becomes a problem. I really don't want to have to rip all my CD's again.

    • Jack Cola
      July 10, 2010 at 2:36 am

      It's blocked due to the licensing restriction they have on their music. It's the same reason why sites like Hulu or blocked to most parts of the world.

    Hi Edgar, the question to be asked here is if you are looking for legitimate places to download music or not quite legal torrents, such as Limewire. A few suggestions of places you can get some free music:
    http://www.emusic.com/ (30 free downloads)
    http://www.amazon.com/Free-Songs-Music/b?ie=UTF8&node=334897011

    iTunes also has a small selection of free mp3s which is updated regularly

    And also take a look at this article http://www.makeuseof.com/tag/top-10-websites-for-free-legal-mp3-music-downloads/
    You should find a wider selection on the sites listed there
