GuerrillaRadio

Free music streaming for Android?

Are there any Android apps that let you stream music for free? Ads would be ok!

Turns out there's an app for playing YouTube videos with display off.

Seems okay. Wouldn't work earlier on the train but at home on my WiFi it's working great.

Most free ones act like radio rather than say just listening to any song you want.
A few to look at:
Blinkbox Music - Actually quite a nice app, genre stations, Artist Stations (similar artists), Like/Dislike songs to help build a personal station and ability to save stations for offline listening.

8tracks - User Generated playlists, even make your own here from songs on Soundcloud or the public library. Downside is it has limited skips.
https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.e8tracks

UberHype - An Android client for http://hypem.com pretty cool, but only really if the type of songs you like are posted by blogs their.

Jango - A huge amount of genre stations, nice simple layout, add artists to stations to play more of your faves.

Google Play Music - You can upload your own music to Google's Play Music service, there's a desktop app to upload music in the background or you can do it from http://music.google.com and then you can stream it from the Android app.

Unfortunately YouTube doesn't work with screen off though. (I sometimes use it to listen to radio plays/novels whilst doing housework through BT headphones and have to leave it on charge)
