It'd be nice to load up a whole thumbstick with music legally and at a reasonable price.
Well, the answer is sort of a yes and no. MP3s themselves are not DRM'd, so you wouldn't have problems with pure MP3s. Subscription-based content is I believe WMA, which is DRM'd and will not play properly. If you have a device that plays the subscription music, these songs *may* play on the head unit. Each device is different and some allow the playing of DRM'd material over the USB port and some do not.
Sorry I couldn't be any more help. That's just the nature of DRM, always getting in the way...
