Myspace was the dominant social media platform in the late 2000s and became a de facto music hosting platform for many artists and labels.
About a year ago, files on Myspace music stopped being available, with the company offering this message to users: "There is an issue with all songs/videos uploaded over three years ago". Myspace initially told those users that it would recover the lost data, but months later it admitted that the files were gone forever. After complaining to the company, users received a vague answer about "issues" needing to be "fixed" with digital uploads completed more than three years prior.
MySpace, the ancient social network that was about music and bands instead of social radicalisation and death threats, claims to have "accidentally" deleted a vast chunk of legacy content. While it might seem that the internet is permanent, it can be incredibly ephemeral - everything from a website altering an old design, to users uploading audio files to a server, can be lost overnight.

"I'm deeply skeptical this was an accident", tech pioneer Andy Baio wrote on Twitter.
According to NME, every single song that was uploaded to MySpace between 2003 and 2015 has been lost. "We apologize for the inconvenience and suggest that you retain your back up copies". The site was sold to News Corporation in 2005 for a staggering $580 million, before quickly losing ground to emerging social networks like Facebook.
