The platform that you used to illegally download Blink-182′s Enema of the State launched in 1999 and has gone through a number of owners during its lifespan. Most recently, Napster reinvented itself as a Best Buy-owned streaming service. Rhapsody, however, recently acquired Napster, and will be shutting it down entirely. Best Buy will receive a share of Rhapsody ownership, and Rhapsody is getting all of Napster’s subscribers. (via Stereogum)
