The music industry has opened up to streaming services which have had a major impact on record sales, however still there are some bands and artists that have held out and not put their music on these services. AC/DC is one such band, and its popularity knows no bounds. After having held out for so long next week AC/DC is expected to bring all of its records to popular streaming services that include Spotify and Rdio, as well as the one that launches today, Apple Music.

AC/DC certainly isn’t the only band in its genre to embrace music streaming services, the likes of Pink Floyd, Led Zeppelin and Metallica have already put their records on music streaming services.

Previously the band decided to sell its catalog through iTunes, it made this decision in 2012 after saying for many years that AC/DC’s albums should be heard in full and not be sold as individual tracks or heard through on demand streaming services.

“For us it’s the best way. We are a band who started off with albums and that’s how we’ve always been,” said guitarist Angus Young in May 2011.

The New York Times reports today that AC/DC’s albums are going to be available through music streaming services Spotify, Rdio and Apple Music, finally ending years of a silent protest of sorts against these services. I’m sure the band’s fans will feel that it’s better late than never.
