In case you haven’t heard AC/DC is NOT releasing their new album on iTunes. I know, it hurts right?….
2 questions immediately come to mind:
- who cares?
- do their original fans even KNOW how to use iTunes?
…okay so that may be pushing it (they have sold a shat load of albums) but really, they are claiming that their NEW album is such a masterpiece that releasing it on iTunes (selling each track individually) would be a SLAP in their ARTISTIC FACE!!!!
This from a band who is famously quoted as saying:
“we haven’t made the same album 9 times. . . We’ve made the same album 12 times!” -Angus Young
Don’t get me wrong, there is nothing wrong with their music. At one time it was cutting edge, and ground breaking, but the 70’s are over, and they are arguably still playing the same riffs.
If you truly believe that AC/DC has a grander artistic vision to their new album (Black Ice), then you probably think Ketchup is spicy, and that weapons of mass destruction are still in Iraq, just Bin Laden has some really good hiding spots.
This is a money grab, as our friend Bob Leftsez flamed about.
They proably would make even more money if they put it on iTunes, but they are just too precious for that. Oh well, i guess we’ll be forced to steal it like all the rest. And so it goes…
