Two of these artists have some of their material available in mp3 format at Amazon.com. Kid Rock's new album is currently $3.99, while a couple of his previous albums can be purchased as mp3s. Bob Seger is offering his "Early Seger" album in mp3 format at Amazon as well. The kicker? You can't buy individual tracks. You need to download the entire album.

It seems these artists don't have just a problem with Apple; they also have a problem with people cherrypicking their album of only the tracks they like as well as "digital music" in general. Someone needs to point out to them that a) CDs are digital and can easily be converted into mp3s so that cat is already out of the bag, and b) if they are so opposed to breaking apart their albums, then why do they have greatest hits albums for sale?

AC/DC's Brian Williams? Well-researched.

Evan Read

Kid Rock is considered a Top Band? And do you mean Brian Johnston from ACDC, or Cliff Williams from ACDC?

Chip

Typical lazy journalism from Hypebot.

Bizzaro

Journalism? Where?

And yet y'all are still here reading it....

I am still bummed about the relatively tiny slice of the Def Leppard catalog on iTunes.

Niels Schroeter

Add to this list all Black Sabbath albums with Ozzy Osbourne.

Henry

I believe making their music unavailable will cause some listeners to resort to piracy who normally would not.

Vincent

Can't get King Crimson on iTunes ... except for the one song which is part of a different compilation.
