Are you a webmaster and does your client has a rock and punky website and wants to give it a stronger identity? How about some rock tracks from Metallica? Or something more new-age like Bon Jovi? You must be spinning with truckloads of ideas on the kinds of rock tracks that you plan to use. But hold your horses. Are you supposed to use these tracks? It might be tempting to use these tracks as music backgrounds for your websites, but of course you will have to watch your back for the Police who might be after you for using copyrighted tracks!
If you already have thoughts about using Sweet Child O’ Mine, then I suggest you give it a second thought. It can be pretty tempting to use these classical rock music tracks for websites but doing so will not do you any good. Don’t tell me that I didn’t warn you.
Illegal downloading is a fad, and everyone is doing it. It is evident from the increase in the number of P2P (peer-to-peer) network websites and not to mention download softwares like Kazaa, Napster and Limewire are everyone’s first download choice when they get a new computer.
So, while your fingers may be itching to include that popular track into your client’s website, think again of the dangerous consequences that you might face upon doing so. If you are really looking for a good rock track for use as background music, how about trying royalty free music? Are you new to this? Well, basically royalty free music are tracks that are not held by any copyright laws. This would mean that as the downloader, you are able to do whatever you wish to the royalty free music that you have downloaded.
You can loop it, edit it, cut it short or do what ever you wish to it and no one is going to hunt you down. You CAN use copyrighted rock songs like the ones from Linkin Park, but then you will have to purchase a license and that will definitely cost you a bomb.
These royalty free rock tracks are freely available off the Net. They come in all forms and varieties. .wav files or .mp3 files, if you want it, you got it. All you need to do is to make a clever little search and keep a look out for those tracks that might sound similar to the rock songs that you have been aiming for.
Do not get so paranoid or too worried if these rock tracks sound cheap and “fake”. You will be surprised to know that some of these tracks are actually composed by well-known music composers and directors. For a cheaper and reasonable price, you can own your very own rock music tracks.
There are a thousand and one things that you can do with these rock tracks. If you are feeling the creative juices oozing out of you, then maybe you can take this opportunity to try and make the best out of these rock tracks by remixing them around with 2 or more tracks and amaze yourself with the end product. Who knows it might sound twice as good as Green Day’s Boulevard Of Broken Dreams The Remix.
Using rock music tracks as website backgrounds is an interesting way to attract your visitors to your site. So, hit a nice rock track and dazzle your visitors today.
