Are you an Elvis fan? Even if you’re not, now’s a great chance to become one! In honor of his birthday, January 8th, Google Play is handing out free copies of Elvis Presley’s 30 #1 Hits.

This singer, actor, and cultural icon turned the music industry on its head when he unleashed his upbeat fusion of country music and rhythm and blues on the world. His sexually charged performances worried parents, terrified television producers, and won over generations of young Americans through the 50’s, 60’s, and beyond. His musical legacy and influence can still be seen throughout pop music, rockabilly, and rock and roll even into the current day. Even if you’re not a fan of his music, his 30 highest rated songs should probably be on your to-listen list just for cultural education purposes.

We don’t have any word yet as to whether or not this promo will extend beyond this musical legend’s birthday, so if you want to get your hands on it, you should probably act fast. Click the button below to grab your copy of Elvis Presley’s 30 #1 hits.

As seems to be the case with many of Google Play’s deals, this one may only be available to US residents. If you’re someone checking in from outside the states, let us know!

What are your thoughts of this deal? It’s hard to turn down free, so if you’re giving this offer a pass, let us know why in the comments.

(Update) The title has been changed to reflect that this offer is only available in the US. A regretful thanks goes out to the overseas commenters who confirmed our suspicions.
