MP3Lizard was a website for royalty-free music by independent artists that was operated by the Finnish web publisher AfterDawn. It was launched in that form in 2001 and effectively unmaintained since 2005. On 2019-01-24, AfterDawn announced that the site had been closed[1].

Archival

Contrary to the announcement, the site was not actually taken down entirely immediately. While the homepage and many other pages (e.g. artist profiles) started redirecting to the AfterDawn website, seemingly all content is still accessible through alternative URLs as of 2019-01-26.

There are two independent archives: ArchiveBot job job:dzezdihrv21ypyaqyiqpeokll and a wpull grab by User:JustAnotherArchivist (on IA: mp3lizard.com_201901). The former covers only the English site, the latter covers both languages. Both are available in the Wayback Machine.
