Free Music Downloads Legally
Finding free music downloads legally can bear serious consequences because the RIAA give warnings about downloading songs without a fee. It is very difficult to find free songs without the risk of getting caught because only a handful of websites offers free music legally. Here is a list of legitimate websites to get free music online without worrying if it's illegal.
- Amazon Amazon members mostly have to pay money to download music off the site, but they have a category where anyone is able to obtain free music to download legally. Although most of the music is from independent artists, a handful of free music downloads is from popular singers/bands.
