You can now rock out to AC/DC on Google Play Music, Spotify, Rdio and Deezer

Australian rock band AC/DC has made several albums available on streaming services, including Google Play Music, Spotify, Rdio and Deezer.

Although AC/DC is one of the best-known bands in the world — having sold more than 200 million albums globally — band members were reticent to make their records available online, stating that they prefer albums be heard in full rather than broken up into chunks for individual downloads. That stance changed in late 2012 with the arrival of Rock or Bust, which was AC/DC's first album to be sold digitally.

For those not yet familiar with the band, here's AC/DC performing Highway To Hell live at River Plate:

  • I know that was sarcasm, but she did a publicity stunt to make Apple and Apple Music look noble and exclusively has her albums for streaming on Apple Music. She is full of shit and does not care about other artists. She is in it for $$$$ Posted via the Android Central App

  • I think is funny all this fuss between streaming services and fight for who will be exclusive to who. I have all my CDs in flac format including acdc and dr dre, when play music became available in my country i uploaded my 12k collection songs into it. Never missed spotify, i have free streaming always.
