15. The Pirate Bay

The Pirate Bay
  • Save

The music industry has been trying to shut down the Pirate Bay for more than ten years.  So has Hollywood, the FBI, and the entire gaming industry.

It’s not working. Amazingly, as of this writing, the Pirate Bay lives at its old harbor,  Personally, I can’t understand how that’s even possible, but go see for yourself.

According to SimilarWeb, the Pirate Bay easily remains one of the largest free mp3 music download destinations in the world.  As of September, the Pirate Bay drew more than 250 million visitors — a month.   And it keeps shifting locations, despite endless raids, shutdowns, and imprisonments.

The Pirate Bay is a torrent hub, which means it’s a repository of torrent links.  That’s entirely different from a YouTube to MP3 converter, and preferred by those seeking full albums and movies.  That is, in massive quantities.

Now, with the shutdown of Kickasstorrents, TPB is mounting a comeback to the torrenting throne.  And the war on the piracy high seas continues.

    Paul outstanding advertising article for getting free music. Didn’t know 9 of these sites but now I do. Thanks buddy! Great journalism

    • Denise Imbesi

      Can someone clarify? Are these sites doing this legally? How?

    • Arthur

      I would have to do some digging for the exact legal code, case citations and other trappings, but the law for entertainment distribution sets clear legal benchmarks for each type of media determining the legal point at which said media can be distributed without the artists explicit consent, though that mark is soft as a priest and as thin as a spider web. it will stand in court, though, as will the infamous marbury v madison defense

    • Priscilla

      Great list. Checked most of these sites. NOTHING comes even close to ZippyAudio!

  2. dhenn

    Of course, it’s NOT legal! I fckng hate assholes who steal music. Appreciate the info Paul.

    This is also a good site for free music downloads –

    All of the songs are legal because they are given away by the artist (permission to share is obtained from each artist).

  7. Raph

    Nice post, also chk this sits for Mp3 Download

  8. Michelle McCown

    I can’t open The Pirate Bay anyhow. Many music sources can already be found on YouTube. It only needs a video converter like WonderFox HD Video Converter Factory to download & convert the videos to MP3.

  9. Mark

    SongRepo is a music website which let’s you stream any track on Earth aswel as download mp3s to phone or computer in one click with no fees, signup or adverts. No gimmicks, no time wasting, no catch whatsoever.
