Grooveshark returns from the dead, now sketchier than ever

Grooveshark returns from the dead, now sketchier than ever

In a bizarre turn of events, Grooveshark has come back from the dead after being closed down by the authorities last week.

According to BGR, a small team assembled after the site’s demise to revive it. The group had been secretly backing up the site’s content for some time and believes it had over 90 percent of it before it was taken offline.

The site is now available at a new URL (which we won’t link to), with much of the music that was found there previously. We have to wonder how long it’ll last considering the group is now operating well outside the law.

The resurrected Grooveshark attempts to absolve itself of responsibility on its terms of use page with the following comment:

Before you start downloading songs we want to tell you the following: The songs you want to download may have copyright(s) on them. This means you’re not allowed to download the song if you don’t possess the original record.

“This won’t be the last you hear of Grooveshark in the next few days.
