Audiogalaxy was a file sharing system located at that indexes MP3 files. Founded by Michael Merhej and sporting a web-based search engine, always-on searching for requested files, auto-resume and low system impact, it quickly gained ground among file sharers abandoning Napster in 2001. Some observing the previous downfall of Napster via lawsuit were shocked at the design of Audiogalaxy, which was in some ways more centralized then Napster.

Although Audiogalaxy's primary purpose was clearly to facilitate sharing of music, much more has grown out of it. Audiogalaxy was notable for its strong community due to such features as chat-enabled groups and per-artist message boards.
