Arrr, matey! Ye should probably buy the CD instead of pirating their songs, and ye'll get a working version of it.

What the comedians are trying to tell you is, you have been a victim of the record companies/RIAA attempts to stop you stealing songs on line.

You've downloaded a fake track that has been let loose onto the P2P networks to fool unsuspecting downloaders, usually 30 seconds of real track, followed by white noise or silence

Either keep plugging away at downloading untill you get a clean copy, or go buy the cd, novel idea I know.

That's not as bad as me buying a copy of the Kings Of Leon album, only to find it doesn't play on my computer without installing some random shit off the CD (like that's going to happen)

back to the shop it goes, and off I go on a downloading spree.

I can't believe how retarded these people are - they've just LOST a CD sale by copy-protecting. I wonder how many other people have done the same?

Talk about corporate foot-shooting.

Record companies seem to be digging their own graves... Anyway, I think services like iTunes or Napster 2 will probably be the way to go in the future. 99 cents a song, with great audio quality, and almost instant access to a huge library... Nullsoft should do something like this. I mean, AOL has certainly seen the potential the online music market offers. I'd love to have something like the iTunes music store incorporated into winamp somehow...
