AC/DC comes to iTunes

One of the last major iTunes holdouts is now available for download. AC/DC is finally on the iTunes Store.

According to the iTunes Store, the band’s complete catalog is available

Formed in 1973 by brothers Malcolm and Angus Young, AC/DC has sold more than 200 million albums worldwide and are still going strong.

AC/DC went through a number of line-up changes in their long history, but the band is known for two eras — The Bon Scott and Brian Johnson eras. Both were great for me, but some fans side heavily in one camp or the other.

Under Bon Scott, AC/DC released hits like “Highway to Hell” and “Dirty Deeds Done Dirt Cheap” which are both still staples in the band’s live performances. When Brian Johnson joined the band in 1980, following Scott’s death1, AC/DC released what would become one of the best rock albums ever — Back in Black.

With songs like “Back in Black” and “You Shook Me All Night Long,” AC/DC began years of great album releases up to and including their latest album, “Black Ice.”


  1. Bon Scott is said to have died from choking on his own vomit after a night of drinking.

    Now this is news. And I’m serious, this is bigger than a iPad mini or super-fast-absorbant 4th generation.

      Not even close. If you’re a “real fan”, you’ve already got their catalog. This is non-news.

        REAL fans have it on scratched 12 vinyl from the 70s, make this a welcome addition – if it wasn’t that the complete set is USD$149, or USD$239 in Australia…

          LOL If you “have it on scratched 12 vinyl from the 70s” and haven’t updated to the half dozen or so other formats that have come and gone since then – you’re not a real fan. :)

            A REAL fan knows the 12″ vinyl from the 70s sounds the best still :-P Either way, still good news although a pity that the early live recordings weren’t included – we always have bootleg ;)

    I’m sure all of Germany, in addition to many parts of Western Europe, care about these guys but meh. I get why they were originally iconoclasts but now? hehe, alright sure. I’m going to put my headphones back on and listen to Wolfmother instead.

      Dude are you serious? You like Wolfmother but question AC/DC? Without AC/DC, there is no Wolfmother!

        And I love them both, by the way
