Magnatune and Creative Commons licensed music

I'm fooling around with making a machinima and I wanted to find some open-content licensed music that I could use freely as an audio clip. I found some music using the Creative Commons search and decided to purchase it from Magnatune. Yes, I was more than happy to pay. I just needed something that I could use freely.

I'd never used Magnatune before but the first thing that struck me is I could enter my own price for the album. I selected the default $8 and paid with Paypal. It was then that they gave me this message:

Give this album away for free!

You can pass these download instructions on to 3 friends. It's completely legal and you'll be helping us fight the evil music industry! Complete details here: http://magnatune.com/info/give

It's a new day, and I'm kind of liking it.

Very funny. I just made a bunch of music available under a CC license for just this purpose @ earsmack.com
