AC/DC is finally releasing its music digitally on iTunes. The rock band was one of the last few major acts holding out on digital release.

Columbia Records and Apple announced Monday that AC/DC's music will be available at the iTunes Store worldwide. Sixteen studio albums will be released, including "High Voltage" and "Back in Black."

The Beatles and Kid Rock were also against selling music on iTunes, but have since jumped onboard.

Country star Garth Brooks has yet to release his music on iTunes.

Four of AC/DC's live albums and three compilation records are also available. The statement said the songs have been mastered for iTunes "with increased audio fidelity."

AC/DC also has a new album out this week called "Live at River Plate." It marks the group's first live album in 20 years.

The band's song, "Back in Black," was recently named the greatest guitar riff of all time by Gibson Guitars.
