Pearl Jam, Death Cab, Bright Eyes also donate downloads to registered voters
MustVote.com has signed up bands ranging from Radiohead to Death Cab for Cutie to donate free downloads as incentive for young people to register to vote. The non-profit aims to register 100,000 new voters between eighteen and twenty-five in the final weeks before their states’ deadlines.
Visitors are rewarded with a free song — an exclusive studio track, live performance or remix — for every person they convince to register through the Web site, with those under seventeen able to take part as well.
Other bands participating include Bright Eyes, Lisa Loeb, Talib Kweli, Cursive, the Distillers, the Faint, the Fever and Von Bondies.
