AC/DC Head To Streaming Services

AC/DC are putting more than a toe into the waters of the internet.

Long one of the holdouts in allowing their music to be used in new media, the band made one concession in 2012 when they allowed iTunes to start selling digital versions of their albums. As soon as Tuesday, they will take the next major step, adding their catalog to streaming services such as Spotify, Rdio and the new Apple Music which is set to launch.

So far, nobody from the AC/DC camp or Apple have confirmed the news but major media sources are reporting it as a done deal.

That leaves only a few major acts that have not joined the streaming revolution, foremost of which are the Beatles and Garth Brooks, two of the biggest selling artists of all time.

Apple may also have another long-time hold out set for Apple Music, which debuts tomorrow. Dr. Dre’s The Chronic is reportedly going to be available at launch marking the first time the rapper has tried streaming. He didn’t even have his music on his own Beats Music which was purchased by Apple last year.

Why AC/DC Never Play ‘It’s a Long Way To The Top’

AC/DC have rarely performed the classic ‘It’s A Long Way To The Top (If You Wanna Rock n Roll)’. The song was only played at AC/DC shows between 1975 and 1979. During that time they performed it 235 times which is a lot, but then as an Australian pub band it was not usual for the band to play seven times a week and sometimes twice on the same day.
