When do you guys remember the MP3 format starting to become regularly used, as in, when were you downloading MP3s from the net?

Summer of '97 was when I was introduced to MP3s. A friend had songs that he downloaded from FTP sites. From the history I've read, MP3 has been around since 1987 but I'm more concerned about when people started using MP3 to compress and distribute popular music over the net.
