Winamp for Mac?

Is it at all possible to get a version of Winamp that will run on an old G4 MDD running Leopard? I've been trying for quite a while now and just run into one dead-end after another. Twocows was supposed to have it, and I downloaded the .sit file, which turned out to be a text file full of garbage.

Excuse me, but that one just went right over my head. I'm sure I'll be laughed at, but what does that mean?

Okaaaayyyyy..... I still don't get it. Why would anyone wish to visit physical damage on a llama in support of an MP3 player?

I must be a bit thick here, or something, but I cannot seem to make the connection between the llama and the software....

Another search revealed this:

image above shows llama inside logo
Mike the Llama is the company's mascot; this is frequently referred to in promotional material (especially for Winamp) citing llamas. Frankel introduced the llama in Winamp's startup sound clip, inspired by the lyrics of Wesley Willis: "Winamp, it really whips the llama's ass!"[1]

Did none of you use Winamp back when it first came out? If you had you recognize the sound clip.

I did use it, even played with the visualisations and was bummed, that iTunes was so restricted with that feature, but I eventually grew out of my viz phase (smoking weed is really fun with some extra viz) and didn't look back, though the past years iTunes has become quite a big pile of excrement, thus I wish, something simple as Winamp would exist. MacAmp is not that visually appealing though.

And I hadn't I searched for that video, I wouldn't have been reminded of that sound, which I haven't heard for almost a decade (Winamp version 2 was my last one, though I still remember version 5 and was confused, why there was no version 4.


EDIT:
And again, a www search brought me here. Man, I am bad at this, am I not?
