Music for Streaming, Broadcasting, and Content Creation

 

(Now with Videos, Pictures, Fonts and Sound Effects (you can find them on the bottom of the document))

PLEASE NOTE THAT WE CAN NOT GUARANTEE YOU WILL NOT GET FLAGGED WITH TWITCH’S AUDIO SCREENING SYSTEM/YOUTUBE CONTENT ID SYSTEM.  THESE ARTISTS HAVE GIVEN PERMISSION. SO UTILIZE THE ATTACHED LICENSING FOR PROOF TO GET YOUR V.O.D.s/VIDEOS RESTORED!

 

When sharing this document, please, please, please, utilize the link: http://bit.ly/MusicForStreaming

This allows me to get analytics to see how this document is being spread around. It’s much appreciated! Thanks!

 

Background:  I have been streaming for more than 2 years.  I started off like most people, bright eyed, bushy tailed streaming any music I wanted to.  I streamed my personal iTunes library, online radios, etc.  My channel started growing, my friends’ streams started getting partnered, and we started learning what music we could and could not stream.  Copyright law is a hard thing to fully understand as well as what qualifies as “fair use.”  My goal with this document/table is to make it easier on streamers and content creators to find good, quality music for their work, without having to go through the hassle of contacting every single artist out there.  I have done most of the work so you don’t have to.  All you need to do is browse the various websites, and download/purchase the music you want to use!  Feel free to use this list, share it, etc. 

 

Any artist or group has been added to this list after giving permission via information available on their websites, publicly available licenses, or private email communication.  Any livestreamer as well as any content creator is allowed to utilize the resources provided in this document to add music to the background of their streams or videos and then monetize them (Twitch/Youtube partnerships) provided they properly credit the artist unless otherwise specified.  You are not allowed to sell any music in this list. You are not allowed to solely stream any music in this list (like a radio).  All music provided is intended for background purposes only, upon which you build your own content.

 

Legend:

Artists/Groups that we would recommend new streamers & content creators to check out are highlighted. These artists/groups have easy sites to use where it takes a few clicks to get what you want.  While the non-highlighted ones are a bit more complex in terms of site design or licensing, don’t necessarily rule them out. Everyone is on this list because they allow you to stream music 🙂

Artists, groups, or services with a green $ next to their name require you to make a purchase of some sort from them in order to use their content in streams or other video content. View the provided license links for more information.

An orange $ signifies that a purchase might be necessary. See provided links and notes for more information.

Any group or service with $$ next to their name are professional music companies or services.  With these companies or services, you can find similar music to the scores you would hear in big budget productions such as movies, video games, advertisements, etc.  Please note these services can be (but aren’t always) extremely expensive.

Any artist, group, or service with a red ! may require you to contact them PRIOR to using their music for your videos or streams.  Read about all the information on their website using the links provided
