AC/DC Ends iTunes Holdout
I couldn’t bare the thought of no AC/DC iTune availability AND Twinkies in my life. Thankfully, AC/DC has officially ended their iTunes holdout:
The AC/DC back catalog hit iTunes for the first time yesterday. Several live albums and compilations are now also available, including their new live album, Live at River Plate, which just came out this week.
Die hard AC/DC fans now have the option of purchasing all 16 studio albums for $100. For $150, you can get the live albums and compilations thrown in, too. Of course, you can also just buy the albums and songs individually.
A few years ago, guitarist Angus Young said he thought it was disrespectful for iTunes to force artists to sell their music as individual tracks. Times are changing, it’s hard to deny Apple. The biggest acts who are still trying are Garth Brooks and Tool.
