Originally founded in winter 2002, but left for dead for years, Ben Loves Music was relaunched in April 2004. It was an outlet for the to-be university grad to share music with his friends even after graduating. The site sputtered along at about 100 hits a day until a mention and link on Copy, Right? blasted the site into the internet music universe and hit 2,000 readers a day. The site featured five of the "52 Songs of 2005" and dedicated readers now visit daily.

Since then, there has been a steady stream of visitors frequenting the site for a mix of punk, hip-hop, indie, mash-ups, and pop music.
Ben Cohen is a DJ/Editor living in Cambridge, MA. He's a smart-ass. He is also a huge, HUGE nerd for making his own wiki page. But we admit, that we love him for it.
