Most people in the file sharing community know by now about the corrupted mp3's that have spread around. It seems that most of the new/popular songs have been corrupted and seeded by the RIAA. You'll notice that the first 20 seconds or so of a song will sound fine, and then get garbled into a screechy sound.
