Welcome to The Rebel Lounge

The Rebel Lounge is the place where you can come to relax and listen to music. Just kick off those shoes, grab a pillow and put them where ever you like, and get comfortable. Feel free to rearrange the furniture while you wait for a site to download. Now isn't that better? OK, why don't you put some music on? This site is where you can contact the artists directly to purchase their CD's if you wish to. It really is the best way. Even though I don't handle any sales or receive any money for the CD's, if you have any problems contact me at webmaster@rebelpoet.info. I will guarantee any CD sales from this site because all artists are personal friends of mine. All songs are from artists that have passed my special screenings test, or have promised to pay me later. If you think you would like to do the same, just send me some. NO, not music, send money!  You can check out the artists web sites while you listen to their music, so relax and enjoy yourself. Each sound clip is about 30 seconds long. This is a no BS web site, so feel free to download any music clip and play it. I don't save cookies or install spyware or redirect you. Make sure your anti-virus program is up to date because I can't control what happens on the internet. If you need a free anti-virus or spyware removal program click on the "My Favorite Programs" button at the bottom of this page.
