    check this out.

    100% free (just have to register after a bit and theres an ad banner (but you can buy out of ads if you want for like 3 bucks a month)

    you enter a band you like, it plays it and finds similar artists. can create channels, mixes, and so on for all your listening. rate the tracks, and all other kinds of cool stuff.

    quality is great too. sounds like 192kbs mp3's or better.

    ME: I want to hear a specific song

    Pandora: Okay, what song would you like to hear

    ME: "Perfect" by Simple Plan

    Pandora: Good choice, that reminds me of this other weak ass song by some artist you've never heard of

    ME: ... um, but I didn't want to hear that

    Pandora: Okay, moving on...

    ME: *thinking* great here it comes

    Pandora: Wow check out this song, it has a "similar sound"

    Me: WTF?!? Dude I don't wanna hear that, play simple plan asshole

    Pandora: Oh alright I won't play that song anymore, here's a song by a group with a similar......

    ME: FUCK YOU, PLAY THE GODDAMN SONG!!

    Pandora: Would you like to hear....

    ME: *Thrust kick monitor off desk, goes back to work*

    I'm suprised this is new to you, or that you haven't posted it first.

    The downside of the site is that you can only fast forward through like 2 or 3 songs before it stops you.

    By Reading this, I can tell who of you just signed up "cuz shit, free music" or who actually read what the Music Genome Project is, and how complex what they are actually doing, really is.

    Did you know that this Pandora equation works for every kind of music but Classical ? Do you understand why it is showing you these people, why you're there, or what you're helping to build ?
