You can't stand in the way of progress, it seems. Rock stalwarts AC/DC have finally listed their entire back catalogue of songs on Apple's iTunes ahead of their 40th anniversary as a band.

AC/DC have been on a shortlist of veteran acts (that until recently included The Beatles) who refused to join Apple's online music service.

That all changed this week with the announcement that their entire back catalogue is now available for digital download.

Individual tracks will sell for $2.19, or fans can buy the entire body of AC/DC's work for $229.99.

In the past, guitarist Angus Young has been vocal about his opposition towards the shift to digital releases.

"It's like an artist who does a painting," Young told The Australian in 2008.

"If he thinks it's a great piece of work, he protects it."

The announcement coincides with the release of Live at River Plate, the band's first live recording in more than 20 years. It also comes ahead of next year's 40th anniversary celebrations.
