AC/DC music band has finally reversed their earlier decision not to make their music available in iTunes store. Now you can access the legendary music AC/DC music collection in iTunes.
AC/DC, founded by Angus and Malcolm Young in 1973 was among the few music bands that refused to place their music in the popular downloading website. They decided to abstain from distributing music via iTunes to discourage the trend of people buying single songs online rather than the whole album itself. It seems finally they have decided to move with times and go online.
AC/DC album in iTunes includes a ‘Complete Set’ version which can be purchased for $149.99 (approximately Rs.8,000) in iTunes. The complete set will also include rarities, demo tracks and four live albums. Users can preview a song by scrolling the mouse over the title of the song in iTunes and then click on the button denoted as ‘Play’.
Then there is a Studio Collection that will cost $99.99 (approximately Rs. 5,500). Other collections placed in the store include ringtones, Live shows and also individual albums.
The songs however can be purchased and downloaded only after opening up the iTunes. Music fans would be happy that the popular Australian Rock has finally made it to the iTunes Store. Company sources confirmed that AC/DC collection will have around hundreds of songs available initially.
Not everyone in music band seems happy with this decision. Lead Singer Brian Johnson previously was stated as saying, “Maybe I’m just being old fashioned.” He also stated “But this iTunes, God Bless ‘em, it’s going to kill music if they’re not careful.” AC/DC music band is about to celebrate their 40th anniversary next year.
