MP3 Rocket is basically an online search tool which helps you locate songs and other difficult-to-find files on the Internet. What it professes is the ability to find creative commons-licensed files, but it actually searches video sharing web sites and converts the files to MP3s which are playable in programs like Winamp.
In reality, MP3 Rocket is not that advanced. That's not to say you can't find something interesting like cover bands, but it doesn't really match up to its former utility as a program that was able to find many popular songs.
Essentially, MP3 Rocket is a program that can find and convert non-copyrighted music into a format that can be played on a portable device, cell phone or PC.
Installing the program may include a toolbar or other unwanted software.
MP3 Rocket used to be a Gnutella client.
