The Beatles Finally Get Their Big Break on iTunes, Sell 450,000 Albums in First Week

After decades of wallowing in near obscurity the Beatles were thrust into the spotlight last week when their entire catalogue went on sale in the iTunes Store.

More than 450,000 albums were sold along with over 2 million individual songs, in just one week. “Abbey Road” and “Here Comes the Sun”, respectively, were the two big winners.

Legal wrangling between the Beatles’ Apple Corp. and Apple ended in 2007, it took three more years for Apple to launch the Beatles in iTunes.

Your kids’ iPods are now officially cooler than yours.
