Hey there. Does anyone know of any bands that have been giving their albums for free? I know Radiohead, Harvey Danger and Heathen have done this, but does anyone know of any others? Thanks :)

I can't tell if that's a joke or hypocrisy at its best.

Check the music section at the Internet Archive, tons of live and studio stuff on there from what I remember.

It's still a maybe but it would kill all the bad publicity they got for suing Napster.
