If you're a chronic ROM flasher, you'll need to go into the Google Music through your PC and deactivate some devices. Every time you flash a new ROM and open Google Music for the first time, it treats it as another device added to your account.

I was getting the same thing when I was running BAMF, I think it had to do with ads being disabled. I fixed it by downloading AdFree from the market and reverting back to the default hosts file.

I unblocked and reblocked the ads and it works

i know how to fix it!

if you have the adblocker on, you need to download the free app adfree
then it will scan your adblocker all you have to do is download & install the hosts and your google music should work on 4g or wifi or whatever ;]

I'm confused about the add blocker thing and what hosts?

If a host name exists in the hosts file, it directs it to the IP found there instead of getting it from your DNS server. The ad blockers direct known ad hosts somewhere else (like 127.0.0.1) so the ads don't load. I think that whatever host google music was using for streaming was blocked in the das bamf ad blocker. I used AdFree to revert my hosts to the default so it no longer blocked anything and that worked. cdoan said that he used it to install a new AdFree hosts file which means that the guy updating the file for AdFree removed whatever was blocking google music.
