NEW YORK AC/DC is finally releasing its music digitally on iTunes.
Columbia Records and Apple announced Monday that the classic rock bands music will be available at the iTunes Store worldwide.
Sixteen studio albums will be released, including High Voltage and Back in Black, which already is in the Top 30 on iTunes top albums chart. Two of the groups albums also are in the Top 100 and seven of the Australian bands songs are in the Top 200.
AC/DC was one of the few acts that would not release music through the digital outlet. Two years ago Apple struck a deal with The Beatles record label, EMI Group, and management company, and began selling the groups music. Kid Rock, who had also been against selling his music through the digital retailer, is releasing a new album, Rebel Soul, on Monday and its available on iTunes.
Country star Garth Brooks, however, has yet to release his music on iTunes.
Four of AC/DCs live albums and three compilation records are also available. The statement said the songs have been mastered for iTunes with increased audio fidelity.
The groups first live album in 20 years, Live at River Plate, is out today.
