MySpace: Hack to Dowload Any Song on Myspace

MySpace allows you to listen to a lot of songs; however, only a few of them can be downloaded. This little work-around will allow you to download most music files.


9/2006:

The method described in this tech-recipe has likely been fixed.

Old recipe is found below…
———————————

Mysace allows you to listen to a lot of music, but they only allow you to dowload a select few of the songs. Here is the work around.

1. Goto the Mysace site that you want to download the music from
2. That page must have at least one song available for download
3. Open notepad
4. Right-click the download link and select copy Link
5. Paste this link into your notepad

You see something like this:

    http://mp3dowload.mysace.com/index.cfm?fuseaction= bandprofile.dowloadSong&bsid=OldSongNumberHere&song_name= Title of the Old Song Here &fid=bandid

6. Right-click the add link and select copy link
7. Paste this into your notepad

You will see something like this:

    asfunction:addSong,NewSongNumber^Title of the New Song Here

8. Now in the original URL just replace the old song number and old title with the new number and title. Paste this URL into your browser and click OK.

9. After several seconds, you will be prompted to download the song.

Here’s an example:
Site: http://www.mysace.com/monstersarewaiting

The one dowloadable song Christine…
http://mp3dowload.mysace.com/index.cfm?fuseaction= bandprofile.dowloadSong&bsid=535475&song_name=Christine&fid=7570106

The add link to Don’t Go…
asfunction:addSong,2373353^Don%27t%20Go^Monsters %20Are%20Waiting%2E%2E%2E%2E%2E%2E

The new hacked URL…
http://mp3dowload.mysace.com/index.cfm?fuseaction= bandprofile.dowloadSong&bsid=2373353&song_name= Don%27t%20Go^Monsters%20Are%20Waiting%2E%2E%2E%2E%2E%2E&fid=7570106

Addendum:

I figured this out independently while just playing around with Mysace. In the forums Brian Berris pointed out that he figured this out first. Props to him! If I had known it, it would have saved me some time. Feel free to check out his blog for a similar version of this tutorial.

    well see if you can find a way to do it now since they changed it

  • sally

    this is really bad guys. Some artists are really trying hard to make a living out of thier music and this type of hacking is really selfish and unsupportive of the artists you “hackers” actually like.

    i have reported this site to myspace.

    • bob

      The only reason i would do this if there was a song I COULDNT BUY. If they are signed and have a record, i will buy it.

      don’t click on ‘kyle’s link, it re-sends you to a chinese site that loads a virus onto your computer. I NEVER trust a site with .cn at the end of it.

  • patricia

    hi there

  • http://www.nexgenfreelancer.com/ Affordable SEO Services

    Can’t downloading be legally done? You are saying that its “Hacking”, which, I don’t think I’ll be doing, because even though I would be able to download those songs, all the time I’ll have a sort of repenting thought in my mind. I don’t wanna have that. Another thing is, I think its better to buy the CD or DVD of my favorite bands if I really want to support them instead of downloading their music that way,

    You can dl a plugin for firefox that does all this for you.

  • Be Serious

    Or you could just buy it and SUPPORT the artists you like.

    • that guy

      what if the artist hasn’t released the song and you cant buy it?

      • Anonymous

        It is ver interesting article thank you so much for shairng

    • Checkyoself

      You do realize that some songs created are one-shot songs- like where the artist does not survive the onslaught of the music industry. Then their songs are just there taking up space, and aren’t being sold by anyone.

  • Be Serious

    yeah just buy it. geesh

    Shame on you for posting this. How are these artists going to make money if people keep stealing their products!!!!!

    • Anonymous

      What products??? Those are low rate compressed songs lightyears from quality tracks…. It’s just a method to listen on the portable MP3 or ipod for some time and then decide if the album is worth the astronomic price…. The big problem are record labels not artists, if it were for artists then the CDs will be cheap and anyone will buy everything. But today very few can afford to buy everything…. Others have to make selections, and how do you do selections if not with listening and comparing?
      I think I will thank anyone who makes my life easier, and if someone has problems with this then it’s on them to make better protection. btw: it’s on me to install an excellent alarm in my car to ensure it will be still there when I return back and no one cares if my alarm is not good enough, it’s on me, just on me.

    excellent points altogether, you simply received
    a emblem new reader. What could you recommend about your put up that you simply made a few days in the past?
    Any sure?

    When I originally commented I clicked the “Notify me when new comments are added” checkbox and now each time a

    Is there any way you can remove me from that service?
    Many thanks!
