AC/DC's selection includes the "Complete Set" for $149.99 [iTunes], Studio Collection for $99.99 [iTunes], Ringtones, Live at River Plate, as well as individual albums.Once the Beatles signed up, Australian hard rockers AC/DC were the biggest major act holding out from selling their music on iTunes (or in any other digital music store).
