The Pirate Bay and Kickass Torrents are the top two torrent sites in the world right now, and both have thousands upon thousands of torrents allowing users access to files of music, movies, TV shows, games, software and more.

The Pirate Bay employs a three-tier grading system consisting of colored skulls which indicate the level of trustworthiness of a torrent. Green is the highest level of trust, called "VIP," pink is the next highest level or "Trusted," and blue is the third level of trust, called "Helper."
