Offspring puts new album online in MP3

Posted 17 September 2000 19:57 CET by ZiSE

Source: ZDNet Punk band Offspring said Friday it will give away a new album on the Web, hitting a sour note with a recording industry fighting a landmark copyright case against Internet song-swap service Napster, which it accuses of promoting online piracy. Offspring's strategy directly contradicts the recording industry's argument that Napster's technology is hurting sales by enabling fans to get music for free. "Digital downloading is not hurting CD sales," said Offspring's manager Jim Guerinot. The whole album will be posted by late October, while "Original Prankster," a single from the new CD, will be available for downloading next Friday, when Offspring launches a contest giving fans a chance to win $1 million by downloading the single and registering their e-mail address with the band. Okay...where do I sign up

This is probably the coolest thing any band has ever done, I use napster all the time, but I was going to buy offspring's new album when it came out because they support napster, but now I can download it with there permission!!! NAPSTER ROCKS! OFFSPRING ROCKS! METALLICA SUX!

p.s. I will still buy offspring's album anyway just because they are so cool.

About SmasingPumkins,
here is a great site :
http://www.netphoria.org/index.html

I think the official one is down...

Their new albulm is not supposed to be on Cd...

If anyone does have it on Mp3,
give us the link...

Title of the Albulm :
"Friends and Enemies of Modern Music" and 3EPs.

Here's the story :
"The Smashing Pumpkins have released a new album on Constantinople Records (Billy's new label) and is the Smashing Pumpkins 6th album. This album is being described as a followup to Machina and the last album from the band. As a final farewell, and a fuck you to a record label that didn't give them the support they deserved, a limited pressing album was made (3x10" + 2LP, 5 discs total) and given away to be bootlegged out among the fans. There is 25 copies pressed on to 12 inch records, there will never be a cd pressing for this album.

Hey Fixx dude http://www.cdfreaks.com/jochem/../smilies//smile.gif
I checked out that site. The only copy of the songs I could find were in real audio format. I like their music but I don't like it that much. I'd rather slit my wrists and drip the blood all over my computer and blow it out rather than install RealAudio or jukebox on my system. They both suck and are HUGE bloatware that tries to grab too much of your system.

Any other places you know of?

to Nila,
if you are talking about Smashing Pumkins, find everything about "Friends and Enemies of Modern Music" on Napster, I think the user is "GisliPals" or me "obike_fixx"...

About Offspring :
the same thing, use Napster.
"Original Prankster" has been found.
But nothing yet about the Album...

I also agrees with what TheSK8man said,
RATM Rules, they were cool at the VideoMusic Award.

Hope it helps.

Hmmmm, are you sure this is not a trap setup by RIAA.
When you go and collect the prizemoney, they catch you for illegaly downloading MP3s.

I know, I'm paranoid....

Maybe you aren't, who knows...

But anyway, you are still able to find it using Napster.

At least this one is not gonna come to your house.
