Free background music for your games

I happened to stumble upon this site when looking for new background musics for my rpg sessions; it's really worth checking! I am now categorizing them where they fit best (scifi/space, fantasy or both (or something else)). For my purposes, it was searching music with 'epic' feel that gave me what I wanted. I'll still need to go through categories more, but so far every interesting piece has been in 'Epic' -category.

While these pieces are free, you can of course donate to the site if you like the music.

Now, why I started to look for music, I wanted to find a piece that would have Epic feel, and would feel more epic with every listening, but isn't something that everyone recognizes. I want to use that piece as a theme for a campaign I'm going to start, and perhaps another song for my current Beasts & Barbarians campaign too!

 

Now, I want to ask you if you have any special sources for music online? If you have, feel free to share them!

You will probably like teknoaxe (on YouTube). He has lots of songs, many of which are suitable for action soundtracks. Dan O Songs (website) also has a wide variety of totally free music. I also have free instrumental songs (free for non-commercial purposes), but they might not be your style--they are mainly chill-out with a couple of rock and techno songs (http://longzijun.wordpress.com/2010/05/28/free-background-music/)

Thanks for the hints
