    Thank goodness bands are starting to realize this may actually benefit them down the road. Although NIN isn't the first, you can get the latest from Big Head Todd and the Monsters off their Web site, plus stream any of their previous stuff online too. (edit-- and there are probably more artists doing it now, too)

    (and yes, I know Radiohead did it too, but that was for limited time, and it was more of an honor box deal. But more power to them anyway).

    In some ways, it's the labels' worst nightmare: What happens when major artists take their stuff straight to fans without a middleman? Oh well. They'll always have Garth Brooks.

    Coldplay's new single is free off their website, as well.
