    http://www.pandora.com/

    Kinda of a cool idea. Isn't great but not awful.

    EDIT: Is this against the rules? It doesn't offer downloads, only streaming music. Close it if it is violating something.

    It was good, if you wanna find a radio station playing the music you like..

    But try this one too, http://www.last.fm/
    Type in a band you like, and a list of bands will appear.
    The bands may not be similiar with the band you typed in.
    For example, if you type Linkin Park, then it'll be a list of bands that other LPfans like.
    It's a good site :]

    I really like this Pandora thing, because instead of just telling you a band name and expecting you to find it yourself, they give you the music right there. Pretty neat, thanks for sharing.

    I like this a lot, and its not like it's condoning illegal downloading cause you cant download the songs you hear.

    I give it two thumbs up!

    I think it's just a ploy to get people to use Amazon/iTunes and buy music from lesser known artists. A great idea, but needs more fine-tuning.

    I've been using it for a while.

    Just make sure you don't put too different of artists together, because they won't necessarily mix well for some reason.

    Like my first station will no longer serve me rap. :lol:

    I started using this a while ago along with Launch! Radio on YIM. It's gotten me into a lot more cool stuff like Shadows Fall, Jag Panzer, etc.

    I'm not saying it doesn't, you just have to create a separate station.

    I had practically my whole music library that could be inputted on here, and all it played was rock. I had to make a new station.
