After previously voicing strong opposition to iTunes, AC/DC has finally released their catalogue on the Apple music store. Until now, the band’s members felt that their songs should not be made available individually as they were all integral parts of various albums.
“This iTunes, God bless ‘em, it’s going to kill music if they’re not careful,” lead singer Brian Johnson said in 2008 upon the release of their last album Black Ice. “It just worries me. And I’m sure they’re just doing it all in the interest of making as much… cash as possible. Let’s put it this way, it’s certainly not for the… love.”
AC/DC released their first live album in 20 years on Tuesday and will tour in 2013 for their 40th anniversary.
