Following in the footsteps of young trendsetters Metallica, Pink Floyd, and Led Zeppelin, AC/DC is finally bringing its music to streaming services. The New York Times reports that the band is set to put its music on subscription services such as Spotify, Rdio, and Apple Music as soon as this Tuesday, having held out longer than most of its ageing rock contemporaries from making its music available digitally. The band, which has sold 72 million records in the United States according to the RIAA, only made the decision to put its catalog on iTunes in 2012. Previously, its members had argued that the band's albums should be heard in full, rather than broken up into chunks available to purchase or stream individually.

The program, called Electronic Questionnaires for Investigations Processing (e-QIP), was not involved in either of two attacks by suspected Chinese hackers on personnel data and applications for security clearances, OPM said. After a security review ordered by Director Katherine Archuleta found a vulnerability in the system, OPM said it would take e-QIP offline for 4-6 weeks until security can be enhanced.
