Yep, iTunes Raised Prices on Songs You Like

Posted By on Tue, Apr 7, 2009 at 11:30 AM


Remember when I told you iTunes was gonna raise the prices of some of its top-selling and most popular songs from 99 cents to $1.29? Well, it's happened.

Head over to iTunes, and you'll see that songs like Black Eyed Peas' "Boom Boom Pow" (currently nesting at No. 1), that Lady GagGa song about poking some girl in the face and a pair of Flo Rida cuts will now cost you an additional 30 cents.

Good news: Kings of Leon, MGMT and Paramore cuts are still 99 cents. Even better news: Nobody still seems to give a fuck about Scott Weiland's new album. —Michael Gallucci
