Kid Rock's digital catalog goes exclusive on Rhapsody

Kid Rock's digital catalog goes exclusive on Rhapsody Online music service Rhapsody has announced that the popular musician Kid Rock has chosen the platform as the exclusive online venue for his music, snubbing the market share leader iTunes in the process.
The musician's music has never been legally available digitally but as of today his entire catalog will be available for purchase and streaming through the subscription service.

Kid Rock has always shown his distaste for the iTunes store, despite the fact that it is the clear market leader for digital downloads.

In June, Rock even went as far as to tell kids to pirate his music as much as they want. "I was telling kids - download it illegally, I don't care. I want you to hear my music so I can play live," he said at the time.

His most recent album, 'Rock N Roll Jesus' has sold 1.7 million CDs, a very high number in this day and age.
