Mötley Crüe offers their new single "Hell On High Heels" as a free MP3 download...promoting their upcoming album "New Tattoo", hitting stores, June 20th.

See guys...*that's* how it should be done.

...not that a lot of you guys strike me as Heavy Metal/Biker types.....but perhaps Björk should follow the same example. :0)

Yeah, Eric, but it's Motley F***ing Crue, a band so past their prime they're gonna be doing county fairs with Foghat. They'll hook up with Twisted Sister and Quiet Riot and launch the "Ugly Housewife Tour."

Point being is that any band that's not on top of the world or making money has a vested interest in getting as much press as possible, but once they are King Poobah of the Mountain, they'll use the system to their advantage.

Then again, I happen to think Metallica peaked at Master of Puppets and it's been all downhill since. ;)

Deep Purple offered "Fireball" for download to mark their 30th anniversary. Although most would consider DP to be an ancient relic, they still do rock...

afaik, Bjork *has* offered a free mp3 download, just recently - a 'not available on any release' kind of thing.
but perhaps, like acting, it's something she'll do once and never again. cuz she's odd like that. ;-)

If only everyone else in the music industry would get the idea that MP3s aren't evil and can be used for good!
