Maroon 5 just helped put together a free music playlist for you to download and we wanted to let you know about it.
A few weeks ago, they were hanging with a friend when they came up with an idea.
"Let's get a bunch of bands together and give away free music to people who pledge to vote.
Then after they pledge, we can send them some information that helps them find out everything they need to know about early voting, absentee voting or just finding their neighborhood polling location."
We contacted the people at Rock The Vote to help run the project, recruited some very talented artists to give away songs and launched the thing this morning.
In less than one minute, you can get Free Music from Maroon 5, Sara Bareilles, Phantom Planet, Michael Franti, Ry Cuming and more simply by visiting:
All you have to do is fill out the pledge and then download the music. It's that easy. Please Rock the Vote. Spread the word to all your friends... Spread the music... Spread the love.
Thank you very much,
Maroon 5 and Friends.

First Act has unveiled the 222 by First Act line of musical instruments in an exclusive partnership with Adam Levine, lead vocalist and guitarist for multi-platinum Grammy winning pop band Maroon 5. Comprised of twenty-two separate musical products, 222 by First Act is the biggest line of signature musical products ever created for mass retail. This comprehensive musical line, created specifically in conjunction with Levine, is a first for the lifestyle music brand.
"I partnered with First Act because they're all about making it easier to play music," says Levine. "They're all for that, and I'm all for that -- and I think that's a wonderful thing. Together we came up with a series to inspire new players and named it after my lucky number -- 222."
Levine worked with First Act earlier this year to create a custom, signature guitar that he played on a "Saturday Night Live" appearance as well as on the band's most recent worldwide tour. Adam's passion for this guitar and First Act's dedication to making quality and affordable instruments led to the partnership that inspired the 222 by First Act line. Levine had an active role in the design and creation of this one-of-a-kind group of instruments.
222 by First Act -- a comprehensive line of musical instruments -- is comprised of twenty-two separate products and its signature piece is a designer electric guitar with a white on white color scheme and the Maroon 5 logo. Additionally available are electric and acoustic guitar packages including amplifiers and the '222 Learn Guitar Book' -- which will teach budding guitarists how to play five Maroon 5 songs. The 222 by First Act 'Step Up' amp will also be introduced along with any and every accessory a guitarist could possibly desire including: strings for electric and acoustic guitars, designer picks and straps, guitar and USB cables, a distortion pedal, an electric tuner and a guitar stand.
You can see Adam Levine in the 5 Friends PSA below.
