Music by someone you’ve heard of

All this licence-free public domain and Creative Commons music is great but sometimes you want to play something a bit more “commercial”.

Fear not, here’s a list of better known bands, artists, tracks and albums which have been published with Creative Commons licences.  Again, remember to check the small print!

Nine Inch Nails actively encourage you to remix their work and many of their more recent albums have CC licences allowing non-commercial sharing so long as you give attribution.

The Beastie Boys and David Byrne along with others have released a CC music compilation album here

REM released It Happened Today under a CC licence and they’d like you to re-mix it!
