The Australian rockers from AC/DC recently said in an interview that they will never accept that their music could be downloaded in digital format on the Internet, informs the electronic edition of the magazine New Musical Express.
Members of the Australian group, who launched a new live DVD on May 9, entitled “AC/DC: Live At River Plate”, told Sky News that they want their songs to be purchased only when they are part of an album.
“I know The Beatles have changed but we’re going to carry on like that. For us it’s the best way. We are a band who started off with albums and that’s how we’ve always been,” says guitarist Angus Young.
“We always were a band that if you heard something (from AC/DC) on the radio, well, that’s only three minutes. Usually the best tracks were on the albums,” he added.
Frontman Brian Johnson believes that the reason the band AC/DC has lasted so long in the music industry is because its members have remained faithful to the original formula and rock n ‘roll.
“We don’t try to change and that strikes a chord. It’s just out and out rock and roll, that’s what we do. We’ve outlived quite a few fashions. We’re still playing what we always did which is good old rock and roll,” Johnson said.
