What happened to the old Garageband.com site?

I used to go there to get a lot free, legal, music. It was mainly for not well known bands. It's been a year or so
since I've been over there and now it's something different. I guess I could try my old password and see what
happens. I'm not a musician just a music lover of nearly every genre except country, well there's a few country
artist I can listen to but not many.

"In partnership with MySpace Music"

Oh god no. banghead smiley



EDIT: I like [bandcamp.com] for finding free (and some pay) music of all types. I actually setup a page for my old band just to have an online accessible place for our songs. It's great because you can upload high quality AIFF files, and the site lets people download at whatever quality they want too.

That was my main reason for asking, never messed with MySpace anything and don't plan on starting now.
I've DL'ed some really good, legally free, music off that site in the past.

I think I found the answer at Wikipedia:

"GarageBand.com was a large online community of independent musicians and music fans. Founded
in 1999, the site was used by musicians who were seeking greater exposure and critical insight
provided by an audience of their peers. The site was also used by music fans to discover new
independent artists in the site's vast collection. Some is Creative Commons-licensed music
content.[citation needed] Garageband closed its doors in June of 2010."


Well that sucks!

I did add an App for free music to my thread below.

Music Free Download Pro, they claim it's legal, probably unknown bands, haven't checked it out yet.

I remember now, my band used to have a garageband.com account too, waaaay back, probably 2002 or so. It was cool for a few months, it really required you to listen and provide feedback on music from other bands for your own music to get heard. Cool concept, or was at least.
