Fans of SoundCloud and the musicians that upload and market music there, took to social media yesterday following growing rumors that the music service was quickly running out of cash.

Some expressed their support of the service while other tried to imagine life with SoundCloud. Many went online to encourage their peers to download and backup as much music as possible, as soon as possible, just in case SoundCloud goes under.
