The site formerly offered a radio streaming service, which was discontinued on 28 April 2014. [4] The ability to access the large catalogue of music stored on the site was later removed entirely, replaced by links to YouTube and Spotify where available. [5]

Last.fm was founded in 2002 by Felix Miller, Martin Stiksel, Michael Breidenbruecker and Thomas Willomitzer, all of them from Germany or Austria , as an internet radio station and music community site, using similar music profiles to generate dynamic playlists. The site name takes advantage of a domain hack using .fm , the top level domain of Micronesia , popular with FM radio related sites. The "love" and "ban" buttons allowed users to gradually customise their profiles. Last.fm won the Europrix 2002 and was nominated for the Prix Ars Electronica in 2003. [7]

Three months later, on 22 May 2009, Techcrunch claimed that it was CBS, the parent company of Last.fm, that handed over the data. [19] Last.fm again denied that this was the case, saying that CBS couldn't have handed over the data without Last.fm's knowledge. [20]
