Need to find some decent music for a 3min Nightclub / Cocktail Bar promo video- music has to be non elevator musak 'i pressed auto on a yamaha wav tracks' stylee sort of cheesey thing!

YouTube audio library is a possibility, but are there any others?

Music track - upbeat dance with some rock music undertones.

I've been using Premium Beat a good bit lately. - like most places, their cuts have 2-3 min mixes plus cut down spot lengths. Shockwave Sound is good too. There are a LOT of buyout music places these days.
Just make sure the place you use has the lengths you need and read the license details carefully. It's possible to find something the client LOVES, only to realize after the fact that it's rights managed, not buyout - and the costs are not in the ballpark you're expecting.

Good luck.

I was using Istockphoto to find music for many years (about $30-60 per song) but recently they were purchased by Getty, and now the price went up to an unaffordable rate.
After researching all the different audio places out there I found AudioBlocks, which has 1 year UNLIMITED downloads for $99. Here's a link to that coupon: http://audioblocks.refr.cc/JF2LSW6

I purchased this and been using it for my client projects for over a month (needed stock music and sound effects). They have a pretty good selection and you really can't beat the price.

In regards to licenses and contracts, definitely READ them. As someone who had to read all the contracts and license agreements for the different audio/music sites (as a rep for my day job production company), a lot of them charge you or limit you to a certain amount of "views" or even charge per year that you are using the song. If you're doing online videos, this is a very outdated and inconvenient policy- because as we all know Youtube videos are up forever, and no telling how many people will view it.
From my experience, AudioBlocks seems like the best deal. You just pay for the subscription and then you get unlimited use of the music, that's it.
