Music sites of that nature are renowned for the sorts of activity thatMsft have listed ther....taking personal and financial info...

 

I would take notice of the warning

 

Identity theft is a bad feeling (if you register on the site)....and so is the theft of your financial information (if you buy anything from the site or its affiliate sites)

It's good to be cautious, however www.dead.net is indeed the official website for the band The Grateful Dead, and is owned by Rhino Entertainment, the catalog division of Warner Music Group. A bit tough if we can't safely go there. My Emsisoft Anti-Malware which has the reputation of being picky, flags nothing there.

 

I'm guessing you're using Internet Explorer and the indication is coming from it? That means someone has submitted a report, but if nothing else confirms it, it's likely to be a false positive or a quickly dealt with issue.

 

Strangely enough, Warner accidentally flagged themselves last year:

If you suspect you may be suffering something like a re-direct, a thorough malware scan could be a wise precaution.

Many site rating vendors (i.e. McAfee WebAdvisor (formerly SiteAdvisor), WOT, Google's Safe Browsing, Avira Scout browser, Symantec WS.Reputation.1, Webutation, avast! Online Security Plugin (formerly WebRep), etc) use a system of volunteer testers that continually patrol the Internet to browse sites, download files, and submit information. All the results are documented and supplemented with feedback from users, Web site owners, and analysis from their own employees. The advising site vendor then summarizes the results typically into a color-coded red, yellow and green ratings scale to help inform Web users as to the safety of each tested site. While these tools are useful, they are not foolproof and sometimes may provide misleading ratings. Just because you visit a risky site, that does not automatically mean the site is bad or that your system has been infected by going there. In contrast, going to a safe site could even prompt a warning. There are legitimate programs available on web sites which are falsely detected by various anti-virus programs from time to time. This sometimes results in an inaccurate site rating/warning of potentially dangerous software when that is not the case. The use of rating sites does not always guarantee an accurate rating of the results they provide and can provide a false sense of security especially for the novice user.
