There are numerous websites that provide free and/or paid music online which have little or no rights restrictions. Music hosting sites with the emphasis on user-generated content can contain a diverse catalogue of music and sounds and many ask their users to waive all copyrights on upload, which allows anyone to use the files.

Music which has been licensed under Creative Commons may also be suitable for your needs (although types of license can vary).

Finding Video, Audio and Images Online links to a number of sites that host free to use music and sound effects.
