This is a case for Supergeek: please help baby get candy back

We were wandering the web in our usual aimless way, link following link, when our eyes lit up as we stumbled on this Rolling Stone page that promised "the best Bob Dylan songs you've never heard." Imagine then, our exreme distress when we plugged in our earphones and leaned back .. to silence. For some weird reason, Rolling Stone—or perhaps it's the music industry lawyers—has decreed that we're not allowed to listen in. Here's what the pop-up said
We're sorry. We have detected that you are outside of the United States. This service is currently only available to residents within the United States.
Any friendly geeks around to help this poor blog get around that?

Haven't tested the site/service described in the article, but I think this is what you need. (basically a tool to use a US-based proxy and mask your IP.)
