Radiohead are now on iTunes

Only days ago, Radiohead were imploring Prince to make his video performance of the band's song Creep available on YouTube. Answering the wishes of their own fans, Radiohead are, for the first time, putting all of their music on iTunes.

As of this morning, the band's six studio albums are for sale via Apple's iTunes Music Store in DRM-free files. The group previously had only a handful of songs on iTunes that were included on various soundtracks or compilations. Earlier this year, Radiohead's latest album, In Rainbows, was made available there.

Radiohead's reasons for withholding their catalog from iTunes stemmed from their desire for fans to buy the albums in complete form, rather than as individual tracks.

As things now stand, The Beatles, Garth Brooks and AC/DC are the last superstar acts without a presence on iTunes.
