XKCD: Demand DRM-free music
Comic explaining that you're a pirate either way, whether you download illegally, or try to circumvent DRM.

As a fan of the second option (demanding DRM-free files rather than finding illegal copies), I'd add that even if you do download illegally, you should still put pressure on artists, labels and distributors to sell DRM-free files. Yes, if they're stupid enough to use DRM, they don't deserve the sale, but sometimes it takes pressure for them to realise how stupid they are.

This is why I use EMusic :)

eMusic is good, but subscriptions don't really work for me. Sometimes there's nothing I want to buy and on eMusic I felt like I had to regulate my behavior: using up credits before they expired, or waiting till there were more credits before I could get something.

All I want is to be able to go to the website of any artist or label, click Buy, then start downloading. Evidentally that's too much to ask. I wish Amazon MP3 would launch here.
