Google offering free music downloads?

Taking a break from Photoshop I stumbled upon a gem of an article showing you exactly how to manipulate Google into giving you free music. That’s right free music. Well sort of.

All you have to do is enter this bit of code into your Google search box, change the band name between the apostrophes from “Nirvana” to whatever you are wanting and hit that enter key.

-inurl:(htm|html|php) intitle:"index of" +"last modified" +"parent directory" +description +size +(wma|mp3) "Nirvana"

You will be displayed a bunch of open indexes, including downloadable .wma and .mp3 files. Try it for yourself.

The dude who actually worked this out can be found here. I’m not responsible for any of this, I just thought I should tell you about it, so that you can frown upon it too.
