That would suck, IMHO. Besides, that would quite probably count as
redistribution too, so what do you win?

I suggest to just replace the songs with free ones. Search for some
GPL'd music, maybe from other games in Debian or so...
Or get some public domain music from archive.org or other sources.
There's tons of Creative Commons music out there, but I'm not sure that
can be packaged in Debian, I remember the current CC licenses have
problems. CC licenses >= version 3 (not yet released) might be better.

Note: I never used or played FretsOnFire, so I don't know what I'm
talking about :)
