Hmm.

The 90’s.

Bill Clinton. Monica Lewinsky. And Napster.

Metallica Brought The Fun To A Halt. And Left The Innocent Fans To Ruins.

I Liked Metallica’s ‘Black Album’. I Don’t Even Know If That’s The Official Name.

N e Hoo.

As Jim Morrison Would Say, ‘Strange Days’.

Selah!.

Is that still going on, by the way? It never really made its way over here and now it seems to have died out.

I used Napster in college and it was awesome. The network was super fast and even faster if I wanted to download from someone else on campus. I was a total Napster glutton. I downloaded everything. :grinning_face_with_smiling_eyes:

I never used Napster, but I did use Kazaa, Bearshare, and Limewire.
I’m really glad things like spotify and youtube exists now.

Never really used napster. I was always getting annoyed downloading for hours on a dial-up, only to find i was bieng rick rolled.

Limewire never - Too much kiddy porn shite was on that.

I borrowed audio cd’s from the library instead and ripped them.

Yes I do believe it is still illegal to download music and movies without paying for it… It’s a lot like stealing only harder to catch someone doing it now days
