Last.fm is a music website, founded in the United Kingdom in 2002. Using a music recommender system called “Audioscrobbler”, Last.fm builds a detailed profile of each user’s musical taste by recording details of the tracks the user listens to, either from Internet radio stations, or the user’s computer or many portable music devices. This information is transferred (“scrobbled”) to Last.fm’s database either via the music player itself (Rdio, Spotify, Clementine, Amarok, MusicBee) or via a plugin installed into the user’s music player. The data are then displayed on the user’s profile page and compiled to create reference pages for individual artists.

"Yeah I like it but I don't like how xbox 360 has monopolized it. I prefer YouTube - well - I preferred Youtube - before Vevo monopolized it."

"Nice alternative to Pandora. Pandora seems to have access to bigger artists and possibly a much larger music library, but (as others have noted) Pandora also tends to repeat songs more often.
Last.fm is a great place to discover new music, but there are a lot of great artists (famous and not-so-much) whose music is on Pandora but not available on Last.fm."
