Download grooveshark song

I’m an undeniable fan of Grooveshark and have gotten quite a few people hooked on their free web-based interface for listening to their favorite tunes. Not everyone likes to stream music though, and that’s when they turn to the free GrooveDown app to provide search and download capabilities powered by Grooveshark’s vast library.

This isn’t the first time we’ve seen an application like this become available, but there are some really unique features that set it apart from the others. For starters you can download songs in bulk by creating a download list, which you can then start the transfer at anytime you want. This is an excellent way for those of you that want to queue up a bunch of downloads and just have them run overnight.

If your music listening tastes tend to run down the popular course there is also an option in the Tools menu you’ll want to take a peek at. From there you can have the search list display the top 500 songs on Grooveshark, and in just a few clicks you can be downloading all of them.

GrooveDown claims that it is legal to download songs from Grooveshark, but I’m sure plenty of people will disagree.

  1. Their legality argument sounds like total bullhockey to me. I’m not an expert on the matter, but I think this is what happened. Grooveshark pays the labels – or at least the ones that have signed on to their service – royalties for the right to *stream* songs on their website. They have not paid for the right to offer downloads of the song.

    TL;DR: GrooveDown is illegal.

  2. Have at it Pieter. It’s working great for me :)

  3. This is not a legal application. Grooveshark does not license any application to rip songs from it’s streaming service. We are working hard to kill this app as soon as possible so we can continue to get artists paid for their hard work.

    • Look, on this site ANYONE can easily impersonate another… Trolls should stay at home and in their basement.

    • Besides, by streaming a song, you are downloading it. The only difference is the amount of time it stays on your computer – and that’s only if you clean out your temp files.

  4. “so we can continue to get artists paid for their hard work.”

    That is American Capitalism, when is earning enough going to stop people from the continuing the greed machine?

  5. I misspelled my own company name!

  6. TECHNICALLY, it isn’t legal to download a song without paying for it. But since no genius seems to have come up with an iTunes-type program for mP3 players and non-apple products, this is possibly THE most professional looking and safe way to get songs without burning disks. Also, they do mention that you should only use the downloads for personal use (at home, with friends and family) or for educational use (like a primary school teacher teaching her students a song for a performance). So yes, it isn;t comletely legal, but it isn’t our fault – why should we be forced to buy iPods?
