    Check allofmp3.com
    It´s an russian site, but the prices are not to beat! The site is very good (fast, secure, comfortable), downloaded many mp3's already.
    A song out of the actual charts i.e. is about 0.10US$, depending on sample rate. go for it!

    regards,

    Bit torrents are great, you can download any bit torrent client, google the name of the song, album, or artist with torrent at the end (Stone Sour torrent) and they are usually pretty fast, free, and somewhat illegal, but hard to track.

    www.magnatune.com - free 128k mp3, paid wav/flac full-cd downloads

    www.jamendo.com - tons of free stuff, generally pretty good, but mostly european (lots of songs written in french, etc)

    www.archive.org - astounding amount of live shows from various taper-friendly bands. some other recordings as well.

    I could locate all kinds of obscure stuff on Limewire that my buddy could not find using Bit torrent.

    Try emusic.com. It's not free, but prices are very reasonable. Files are high quality MP3s and will work with any portable music player.

    why not just Google it?

    Try this on the google search bar, just change where it says NAME OF SONG OR ARTIST HERE but dont remove the " Don't change anything else!

    intitle:index.of "mp3" +"NAME OF SONG OR ARTIST HERE" -htm -html -php -asp "Last Modified"

    I'm really surprised at the posts here. No one seems to have mentioned that most of the options listed here are illegal. This includes the Russian mp3 site. It may be legal in Russia, but it most likely is illegal here. In fact allofmp3.com is such a hot issue that it may even jeopardizing Russia's entry into the WTO.

    A lot of people get really upset around here about Chinese knock offs and theft of intellectual property when it comes to the tools we use, but it appears many don't seem to mind it when it comes to software and media.

    Allofmp3.com is no different than a Chinese knock off of your favorite knife.

    Good point. On Macrumors forums these type of threads are shut down immediately.
