The bigbang_mixup challenge is a bigbang challenge that closely resembles a reverse bang. It mixes up the order of the challenge—first, a fanmix is created. This fanmix tells the story. It will then be claimed by an author who will write a piece of fiction (that tells the story they read the fanmix to have), which an artist will then claim (this is pretty straightforward--the artist creates art based on the story).

The RIAA dictates you're supposed to delete music you download from the Internet after 24 hours if you haven't purchased it. It's your discretion whether or not you delete it (or if you even make your mixes available for download (options of online playlists are available and totally cool with bigbang_mixup)) and we won't take responsibility for it because we don't know what you do with the mix after downloading. Any user that uploads copyrighted files for download does so at their own discretion--anyone that downloads does so at their own discretion. You CAN create a playlist from youtube; chances are the songs on your mix have been put up by an 'official' channel--or allowed by the label.
