It was actually 100 million songs, as it says in the quote from The Steve™. Too bad it was a flop...only 5 million were redeemed.

I remember you could tip the bottle just so and see if you won a song so you didnt have to waste any money.

I had a friend that worked in a factory, and they would save me everyone's codes.

I was so excited when I got to the 500-song limit -- it meant that I didn't have to keep looking for things to buy! I had begun downloading random music, and then sharing it with my roommates (authorizing their computers)

Ahh, now that I think of it, those Pepsi song caps are what got me to download iTunes... and eventually get an iPod... which makes me a victim of the "halo effect" because I'll be getting a MacBook. :D
