So Rock My Monkey has a new wacky idea. What about taking 3 bands per week, posting a link to one free download (or stream if we get desperate) from each of the 3 bands, then letting just those three battle it out too see which one survives? The winner will go on to battle two new foe's the next week.
Bands with a direct MP3 download will get preferential treatment. In other words, if when picking the bands fo the week I have a band that links to a stream and a band with a direct MP3 link on their website, the band with the MP3 link will get the feature. Bands who insist on having you sign up to mailing list, click an ad, share on your Facebook, or dance around the house in a pink tutu for the almighty privilege of downloading one single song will be asked to go fly a kite and please fall off a cliff while doing so. Bands that want to charge can do the same.
No mater if you want to stream it or give an MP3 download, we MUST have a direct link to a specific song! "But dude this goes right to our MySpace and people can find the song there." We will not ask anyone to find jack squat. It must be a direct link or you will get sent back to the minor leagues. We WILL NOT host the file for you. You are big boys and girls and can figure out how to do that for yourselves.
So it must be a direct link to a direct song. A YouTube video is fine if it is on your bands official YouTube (or other video hosting service) account.
So do ya feel lucky punk? Well do ya?
Post the link to our Facebook page HERE. I will pick from there. If your band is not chosen feel free to keep bugging us. Only 3 slots per week so your chance will come up quick.
If you have any questions PLEASE ASK!
