Ac/dc - AC/DC on iTunes

AC/DC's songs are now available through iTunes.

The legendary 'Back in Black' band have made all sixteen of their studio albums, three compilations and four live albums available through the music service, part of the technology company Apple, from today (19.11.12).

The Australian rockers had previously withheld their music from the download site, saying they didn't agree with its business ethos.

Singer Brian Johnson said in 2008: ''This iTunes, God bless them, it's going to kill music if they're not careful.

''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.''

The band - which also includes brothers Malcolm and Angus Young, Cliff Williams and Phil Rudd - have previously sold over 150 million physical copies of their albums, and their 1980 masterpiece 'Back In Black' remains one of the biggest selling albums of all time.

The group's tracks have been mastered for iTunes, increasing the audio quality of the tracks when stored electronically.

The band's last studio album, 'Black Ice', was released in 2008, while their 'Live at River Plate' concert DVD came out in 2011. The band are currently believed to be working on a new record, but no release date has been given.
