In 2001 there was an album recorded for the LinuxTag in Berlin. This was
before the Creative Commons license (afaik), so the organisers drafted their own
OpenMusic license, which allows resampling (in its "green" version).

The lead song by the Magic Mushrooms could make for good material. The
LinuxTag was a more commercially oriented event and they choose to adopt the
term "Open Source" at the time.
