MUSICBLITZ LICENSES SONGS FROM ITS EXCLUSIVE CATALOG TO DISNEY, WARNER BROS., USA NETWORK, FOX, MTV AND NBC FOR UPCOMING FILMS AND TELEVISION SHOWS

Songs from The Presidents of the United States of America, Quickie, Spacetime Continuum and Downset Featured in Felicity, Our Lips Are Sealed, Road Rules, Mysterious Ways, Respectively, and Others

Los Angeles, CA- September 18, 2000 - Disney, Warner Bros., USA Network, Fox, MTV Networks and NBC have licensed songs from MUSICBLITZ, an innovative developer of exclusive new music and targeted music brands, for use in upcoming film and television projects. MUSICBLITZ uses feedback from consumer downloads to pre-qualify its entire catalog of exclusive music. The most popular songs are then made available to the studios for use in films or television shows.

Songs from MUSICBLITZ's exclusive catalog have been licensed for a variety of television shows. Touchstone/Disney has licensed music from the multi-platinum modern rock band The Presidents of the United States of America for the season premiere of Felicity on the WB Television Network. USA Network has also licensed music from The Presidents for Team MXG, a lifestyle show geared toward young adults. Fox Television has chosen music from the up-and-coming Seattle band Quickie for American High and the Fox Family Channel's Our Lips Are Sealed, featuring the Olsen twins. MTV is including a track from the ambient electronic group Spacetime Continuum in an upcoming episode of Road Rules. NBC has also licensed a song from the hard-core/hip-hop group Downset for Mysterious Ways. 

MUSICBLITZ and 20th Century Fox are also running a joint promotion for the new film DUDE, WHERE'S MY CAR? Bands can submit songs to MUSICBLITZ via a special Web site (www.musicblitz.com/dude) for possible inclusion in the film. 20th Century Fox will review the ten most popular songs, as determined by online voters, and will include one in the movie. Additionally, music from The Presidents of the United States of America, Bobby Womack and Spacetime Continuum has been licensed for a new film being directed and produced by Montel Williams.

"The Internet is an incredibly effective medium for gauging whether or not a song has enough momentum to possibly become a mainstream hit," commented MUSICBLITZ CEO Kevin Nakao. "These deals prove that MUSICBLITZ has developed a strong business model that drives revenues for the company and the artists that record exclusive music for us." 

MUSICBLITZ has signed more than 100 established artists to date and offers its entire catalog of music as free downloads to consumers at www.musicblitz.com. Because MUSICBLITZ funds the recordings, works directly with artists and obtains the necessary clearances in advance, the songs can be re-packaged and licensed for other uses. In addition to film and television, songs from MUSICBLITZ's catalog have also been used to create revenues from broadcast and cable radio, and retail. 

MUSICBLITZ's catalog of exclusive music spans a variety of genres, including hip-hop, rock, blues, reggae, electronica, metal, punk and alt-country. Some of the well-known artists who have recorded exclusive songs for MUSICBLITZ include Aimee Mann, Coolio, Elastica, Ozomatli, Mudhoney, Screaming Trees, The Presidents of the United States of America, Wailing Souls, Shabba Ranks, Taj Mahal, Maxi Priest, Sir Mix-A-Lot, Motorhead and Wayne Kramer.
