This is just sad.

AC/DC have left music stores across the country thunderstruck as the Australian bandís new album, due out in the fall, will be released exclusively through Wal-Mart, the Wall Street Journal reports. The still-untitled, Brendan OíBrien-produced album will be the groupís first since 2000ís Stiff Upper Lip. AC/DC join a club currently occupied by Garth Brooks, Journey and the Eagles as artists who have made their albums exclusively available for purchase via the retail giant (in theory, at least.)

It's the Brian Johnson era anyway, so I really could care less. I do still love old Angus.

But Brian Johnson should have never gotten Bon's job anyway. Either Angry Anderson from Rose Tattoo or the singer from Angel City should have.

As far as hating bands for using Walmart...it won't be me.

I happen to buy my Clothes, Groceries, Pharmacy Products and a lot of other stuff at Walmart and have no problem with it at all.

Mom and Pop charged to much for their stuff, now their out of business. At least they can get greeters jobs at Walmart.

Its a great deal for AC/DC. The album is obviously going to suck so might as well get the financial backing of Wal Mart to heavily promote the album. This sucks for the industry as a whole. The marketplace should be more integrated not segmented. New bands are dead and only the big, rich bands will survive

Believe it or not Walmart is the biggest seller of cd's in the USA which is why some bands use them exclusively

which pays nothing with no benefits.

Wott about the factory jobs lost because Walmart forces suppliers to move overseas.

Where they charging to much also?

SCREW WALMART, they destroy towns and factories with their "business" practices.

Every time one of us:
a) buys a car made outside the country
b) buys a consumer electronic product
c) buys pretty much anything that feeds the entertainment beast

....we are shipping jobs outside the US.

To blame Walmart solely is naive at best...to think that we would have competitive prices on the things we want if they were only built in the US is equally naive.


At least here in New England...it started with the textile mills being replaced...then the steel companies in the rust belt etc. etc etc.

Please spare us your indignation towards Walmart...we only have our greedy selves to blame. We "want everything"........we "need so much less"

I'll just add my "who cares?" to this thread. OK?


AC/DC is pretty adolescent stuff as far as I'm concerned.

Heard the good stuff 1000 times and IMO the band hasn't made
a decent album in almost 30 years. They had something with Bon
Scott. Back in Black was good but god their new singer SHRIEKS and
I just can't stand 'em (Constanza ) anymore.

So, not caring too much here.

Walmart is the most egregious though. The demands they put on their suppliers force jobs overseas more than any other company. I have customers that sell to Walmart and they universally agree that Walmart is by far, the worst big box retailer in terms of pressuring their suppliers on price/terms/delivery etc.

Reminds me of when AC/DC's latest album came out and one of the critics said, "It's the same album they've made the last 13 times".

To which Angus Young retorted, "That's a bloody fookin' lie! It's the same album we've made the last 14 times!"

....gotta love it.

What is interesting to me though is that Walmart has refused to sell CDs with certain content...yet the band that gave us "Big Balls" and "Let Me Put My Love Into You" doesn't have a problem doing an exclusive deal with Hellmart? Talk about sell outs.

I'm waiting for the Phred Phelps type crowd to start in on this one ...he can get alot of mileage on it.

No Hugh, they are actually treating you bad. You just don't know it...LOL !

People always whining about Walmart. I'm getting ready to go there now and feed the evil machine. I will save me some money at the hands of the poor suffering employees, that are being held prisoner to work there. I know last time I was there I noticed supervisors with cattle prods shocking cashiers into hurrying up. The poor greeters, I heard they are really from Nursing homes and kept hostage in a dungeon below the tire dept.

Wonder what people going do around here when the Allman Brothers sign an exclusive deal with Wal-Mart? You can't blame a band for doing a Wal-Mart deal. The band get's to own their masters and keep their publishing, without having to deal with a record company trying to "bleed them dry", for assorted other cost. Wal-mart just acts as the exclusive distributor for an agreed amount of time. Also because there're fewer "middle men' bands can sell their CDs for less, and still make bigger profit than they would if they were signed to a record company and dealing with the "old style" distribution system, which pretty much made sure the "last" people getting any money was the artist themselves. Better believe that many, if not most established bands and artists are paying close attention to the success the Eagles have had with their Wal-Mart deal, and no doubt, many of them will be following suit.

True. They seem more interested in live recordings of their complete tours than doing anything in a recording studio. But to be fair, Brother Gregg has been seriously ailing.
