Reactions Pour In Over AC/DC's New Album Deal With Wal-Mart
As we all know, thousands of AC/DC fans are angered by the bands decision to sell their new album exclusively through Wal-Mart. Now other journalists have chimed in with their two cents over the deal.
Mark Caro of the Chicago Tribune’s blog Pop Machine says: “This is unbelievable! The classic headbangers’ new album won’t be available at any sort of rock music store, but you can pick it up along with a box of Huggies?” Maybe this has more to do with the “death of the record store” than it does AC/DC, but still, it’s hard not to think that the band “has sold its twisted soul.”
The blog TheLefsetzLetter was also critical stating: "AC/DC are the biggest band still alive in the minds of teenagers. The closest Wal-Mart to me is almost twenty miles away! And the fact that AC/DC is one of the few bands that still “doesn’t offer its catalog on iTunes” makes the whole situation that much more frustrating. "
However some have praised the move claiming that: “JOURNEY and GARTH BROOKS have reportedly reached a deal to distribute their new albums exclusively through Wal-Mart.” And it worked out pretty well for THE EAGLES - their “Wal-Mart only album” has sold “nearly 3 million copies since last summer.”
