AC/DC finally releases its music on iTunes

NEW YORK -- AC/DC is finally releasing its music digitally on iTunes.

Columbia Records and Apple announced Monday that the classic rock band's music will be available at the iTunes Store worldwide.

Sixteen studio albums will be released, including High Voltage and Back in Black, which is already in the Top 30 on iTunes' top albums chart. Two of the group's albums are also in the Top 100 and seven of the Australian band's 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 group's music.

Four of AC/DC's live albums and three compilation records are also available. The statement said the songs have been mastered for iTunes "with increased audio fidelity."

The group's first live album in 20 years, Live at River Plate, is out Tuesday.
