Buy an AC/DC cd at a cd store. Problem solved. They're not hard to find either.

I have a non-DRM copy of 'Highway to Hell' on 8-track. I could copy it to a non-DRM cassette for you :)

The same was true for Radiohead for quite some time... some artists just don't want their music on iTunes.

You could order a cd online somewhere like http://www.amazon.com or something. You can buy mp3s from Amazon as well, and they have a bunch of AC/DC available; I just checked.

Well, for AC that is easy. It is what comes into/out of the computer. The power supply converts it to DC for the system to use.

No deal has been cut with AC/DC apparently.

I got AC/DC's entire discography off of The Pirate Bay.

Oops, did I say that out loud...?

8-track? Not too common amongst the people I know. I only remember seeing one or two of those machines.....the first was in a Ford Mustang, back in about 1972, the second was in a second-hand shop about 3 or 4 years ago...

Seconding what RiceMonster said. Plus, you could probably get all their CDs used and rip them however you like for the price it would cost you to buy one of them off iTunes (if they were there.)
