Using a program called Audacity you can remove the vocals from a song to make your own instrumentals!!

***************************************************************
***NOTE THE END RESULT WILL BE IN MONOTONE SOUND NOT STEREO!***
***************************************************************

Program link here:
http://audacity.sourceforge.net/

In this example I used Tokyo by YUI, it didn't turn up that well because her voice couldn't really be removed and got sorta distorted instead. Although when I used songs like Rolling Star it ended up really close to the real instrumental. So I guess slow songs aren't really great for this.

Step 1: Open the music file
        -At the top menu go to Project -> Import Audio


Step 2: Split Stereo Track
        -On the far left above "Mute" and "Solo" there is a little black arrow. Click on it   to bring down the list and select Split Stereo Track


Step 3: Select Right Side Sound Output
        -Select the Right side sound output by clicking on the gray box where it might say something like "Right, 44100Hz, 32-bit float"


Step 4: Invert
        -At the top menu go to Effects -> Invert


Step 5: Mono-ize it!!
        -From the same drop down list in Step 2 go to Mono


Step 6: Mono-ize it!! (again)
        -Do the same thing to the right output


Step 7 (optional): Amplify
        -If your still hearing some really soft vocals in the background go to Amplify and set the amplification to some negative number.  



.....aaaaaand im outta here!!

Looks interesting.. Wanna try that.. but..
Eh, isn't that program almost the same with Sony's Soundforge ?
Which one is better ?
Can that program edit/rip audio from DIVX encoded video ?

Go google lame_enc.dll. Download that file and when you finish with your clip export your clip as a MP3 and locate the lame_enc.dll file. Tada! You're done.

Audacity isn't able to get rid of all the vocals. I believe nothing can unless you're able to find a clip of the original song with all the excess recordings and etc.

Also more stuff about Audacity: Basically tutorials on the software.
http://audacityteam.org/wiki/index.php?title=Tutorials There's so much stuff that I haven't done with this software. That's why Audacity is like the best free software for audio creation and editting.
