AC/DC Finally Joins Music Streaming World

AC/DC Finally Joins Music Streaming World

AC/DC has ended their music streaming boycott, and now the band’s entire catalog is available to stream. Although the band was reluctant to do so, they joined iTunes three years ago. The band was concerned that listening to individual tracks (opposed to listening to the entire album), may have a damaging affect on the consumer’s listening experience. AC/DC has since made a smooth transition into the digital world, and their Rock or Bust project was the band’s first album that was available in digital format. The album has sold over 500,000 copies in the US, which has earned the band a Gold certified project. Fans (and potential fans) can now listen to the legendary band’s music on Spotify, Rdio, Rhapsody, and Apple Music.

AC/DC is one of the top-selling bands in music history. The iconic rockers have sold over 200 million albums worldwide, and over 70 million albums were sold in the US. AC/DC has released 17 studio albums, some of which include Back in Black, For Those About to Rock We Salute You, Fly on the Wall, The Razors Edge, Flick of the Switch, andBlack Ice. The band’s most-recognized songs include “Back In Black,” “Highway to Hell,” “You Shook Me All Night Long,” “Thunderstruck,” “Shoot to Thrill,” “Hell Bells,” and the single from their latest effort named “Rock or Bust.”

AC/DC is currently on their Rock or Bust World Tour, which is scheduled to conclude on September 28th in Los Angeles, California. On July 1st, the band will travel to Dublin 4, Ireland to perform at Aviva Stadium. The band’s remaining dates next month include July 4th in Wembley, London; July 6th in Dessel, Belgium; July 9th in Imola BO, Italy; July 12th in Gelsenkirchen, Germany; July 15th in Rockilde, Denmark; July 17th in Oslo, Norway; July 19th in Solna, Sweden; July 22nd in Hameelinna, Finland; and July 25th in Warsaw, Poland.
