The best band you're not listening to has released all of their music for free on their webisite.
http://50footwave.cashmusic.org/freemusic/
All the tracks are available in both FLAC and mp3 format (I grabbed both, FLAC is better but my Zune won't play it.) as a Torrent or direct download.

Edit: If you need even more reason to grab it:
There is an awesome cover of Somebody to Love (The Great Society, Jefferson Airplane) and a new version of Your Ghost from her solo stuff included.

Dear World:

We, the United States of America, your top quality supplier of the ideals of liberty and democracy, would like to apologize for our 2001-2008 interruption in service. The technical fault that led to this eight-year service outage has been located, and the software responsible was replaced November 4, 2008.. Early tests of the newly installed program indicate that we are now operating correctly, and we expect it to be fully functional on January 20, 2009. We apologize for any inconvenience caused by the outage. We look forward to resuming full service and hope to improve in years to come. We thank you for your patience and understanding.

Sincerely,

THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA

If you have a 30GB Zune and it is somehow currently working do not hook it up to your computer.
Do not.

At around 2am 30GB Zunes started failing for some strange reason. Mine was one of them. The one that belongs to my wife works fine though. She hadn't updated her firmware in a while though. Mine was up to date. So if yours works currently don't hook it up to your computer until this is fixed or you will get the latest firmware update and it will die. It appears that models other then the 30GB are not dying.
