The rock band Wilco is offering a free download to fans who promise to vote. The song is a version of Bob Dylan's "I Shall Be Released" recorded this summer in collaboration with Fleet Foxes. Nearly 50,000 people have downloaded the song so far, after clicking on a box pledging to vote. The band supports Barack Obama, although the get-out-the-vote effort is nonpartisan.
