Thumping rockers AC/DC have been remastered for iTunes putting the seminal rocknroll tracks in a digital music store for the first time.

AC/DC music has never been sold digitally before record label Columbia cut a deal with Apple, and now all 16 albums are on the store plus two specially packaged digital collections.

Apple promise that the new reworked version will let you experience the full intensity of the hairy rockers belting out their hits.

If you can't manage a beer-soaked stadium full of stamping rockers, then getting the acoustics remastered is best you can do.

Fans can also choose from two specially packaged digital compilations: The Complete Collection, the complete iTunes-exclusive AC/DC catalog; and The Collection, which includes all 16 studio albums.

The Beatles for iTunes came in 2010. There's always interest in lucrative old bands with a dedicated music following, of the age where they still expect to pay for music.

The entire collection is up for $99.99 - or $149.99 if you want to pay for the live albums too.

The Register editorial AC/DC fanbase suggests that you should download Whole Lotta Rosie. ®
