NPR Sunday Puzzle (Aug 19): Music Is in the Air

NPR Sunday Puzzle (Aug 19): Music Is in the Air:
Rearrange the letters of NITROGEN to get a familiar word everyone knows, that did not exist 10 years ago. What is it?
The title was intended for the on-air puzzle, not the challenge for the week. Or was it?

Edit: I have to think the title was a deliberate hint since there is no mention of air in the on-air puzzle, just musical instruments. And air is 78 percent nitrogen. So the answer is...
A: NITROGEN --> RINGTONE
