A shitty audio format which removes the detail from uncompressed lossless audio files, which sound so much better than MP3, WMA or any lossy file format around the 3 MB range.
MP3 may be good for basic talk and space saving, but terrible for music.

An audio file format. Generally used to illegally copy, download and share music files, usually grossly low quality, incredibly irritating when the only file type available for downloading (i.e. itunes). Takes up more bytes per qualitum than WMA files, yet gets chosen over them because it has no restrictions on illegal sharing.
Suckers.
I didn't have enough money for the Anberlin cd, so i downloaded it from wal-mart's website. Little did i know, they stopped selling WMAs, they only have fucking MP3s now. It sounds horrible.

An outdated but still very popular lossy audio codec.
Shorthand for MPEG-1 Layer 3.

Notorious for its totally gross quality at low bitrates (128 and below). Usually considered good enough when created by a good modern encoder (LAME) with VBR quality 0-3, that's usually 160..320 kbps. Although people with the most sensible ears say that its model is designed in such a way that some sounds will be thrown away or distorted even at maximum bitrate.

Nowadays there are lossy codecs which are more efficient and superior to MP3 in all ways: Opus, Vorbis, AAC, Musepack are the most widely known of them.
Great band! I must go "buy" their discography at torrents… damn, it's only in mp3. I wish I had worse hearing.
