Are free music downloads license free?

I've looked around but I don't think this question has been answered directly.
If an artist provide's a free music download to a song, can I use that song.... since it's labeled/offered as "free".... to use in a slide show presentation that I share with others?
For example. Lets say U2 offers a free download of a song somewhere. I go and download it and then I create a slideshow presentation with that U2 song. Then I want to post it on Facebook or You Tube.....Will I be able to do that with licensing or rights issues?
By the way I reference a big artist like U2 simply because I don't like the royalty -free theme music that is available on the net. I like "known" artists.
I just want to clear this up. I'm kinda new to this so please be paitient with your replies. Thanks
