The Music N*** is a simple replacement for iTunes, suitable for parties. It lets your guests queue up songs while locking the screen (kiosk mode) and disabling the playback controls.

The Music N*** should be able to play iTunes Music Store files (those with DRM), but I haven't tested this because I've never bought any songs from Apple. But I know it won't play over AirTunes since that's a closed feature of iTunes. There are third party ways of getting around this. The Music N*** requires at least Mac OS X 10.3 and it might not be able to read iTunes Library files before more...

What's New

Version 1.7:
  • Support for unicode on Mac OS X 10.3
  • Fixed bug where songs with &'s wouldn't play.

Requirements

Mac OS X 10.3 or later

I love rooting through old app listings and finding apps like this. Those stars in the app name -- so bizarre! Haha.

I love this simple app. It still seems to work with iTunes 9.

But I'm missing Genre browsing and the display of the rating or filtering out bad rated songs. Also displaying the year would be nice.

I loved this application as a light alternative to itunes, until it stopped working with itunes7 files.

It would be really great if it did again!
The only other major thing I would change about it is the option to Hide the app, whether this be password protected or not, its a good function.

Only real issue i've found is that when you lock the program, it is still very easy to use the computer. When you click to unlock the machine it brings up the dock, and a person could open an application, which brings up the menu bar, allowing access to the apple menu and the ability to open system prefs, shut down, log out, etc. Other than this, works great.

Oh, stop it with all the politically correct mumbo jumbo. I suppose you've also got issues with the 'Soup Nazi' from Seinfeld fame. Get a grip -- the word's obviously used in *that* vein, and by all means shouldn't be censored.

Censoring something like that is way over the top.

I do apologise. And the Hitler icon really sets it off and disassociates it from the Second World War in any way. Clearly it's a Seinfeld reference; silly me!

And, after the name and Hitler icon, do you find any other logical links to WWII in the subject matter? I couldn't find any.

As for a reference to Seinfeld, I didn't say he specifically made reference to some of the content in the show -- it was simply in similar vein.

It seems as if the author is making a veiled reference to Apple in this particular instance.

Besides the two examples? How many do we need - does it have to have an 'Extract Gold Filling...' option under the File Menu before I'm allowed to call it bad taste?

You've got to be kidding. You've never heard of sarcasm or irony?

Are you sure you don't belong to the NCAA committee trying to force Florida State to remove Seminoles as their team name? ; )

(That was a joke, in case you didn't catch my sarcasm.)

Yes, I was kidding. That was sarcasm, or irony.

This is not at all about political wellness or censorship. On a global scale, the allusion to Seinfelds soup nazi is an inside joke - you can´t expect everybody to catch it. In Germany, for example, Seinfeld is known only to a few coach potatoes who spend their sunny weekends watching TV. It´s simply not popular at all. Therefore nobody thinks of the soup nazi, when reading an application named music nazi, but may well remember those idiots still proclaiming that Hitler was doing fine proving their ideas by beating up any person they´re in the mood to dislike.

I felt offended too, then I looked up the Seinfeld story and now I think it is a funny application name - inside the US.

Developers should not be bound to figure out any way they might irritate somebody on this planet in advance. But IMHO they should try to understand upcoming complaints and respond to them in a sensitive way. It´s no censorship at all to tell somebody that his joke is not that good in every place. And this one really can be irritating.

Sorry to say, but a software called "music nazi" would spoil my party, for I would spend all night explaining the Seinfeld story to every single guest. No dancing at all - while this is a music player.

My prejudices over the stupid name mean I'm not even going to download this. I suggest a complete name change, and perhaps a look at a history book.

It must suck getting offended all the time and not letting yourself download things.

... next time, just choose a proper name for your apps BEFORE the release...

you knew from the begining that the word 'nazi' would be a problem... this is lamer!

btw, good idea... just need some tweaks and a better interface!
