Aerosmith’s Digital History Maker!
You know, you learn something new everyday... today I learned how Aerosmith (thanks to the band's Facebook page) was the first band to have a digitally downloadable song. The song "Head First" was an unused cut from the "Get A Grip" Sessions, and it made history and changed the way many get music today.
On June 27th, 1994, (24 years ago) Geffen Records released the first major label song for exclusive digital download. Over ten thousand CompuServe subscribers downloaded the song in an eight day period. 24 years ago it took anywhere from an hour to hour and half to download the 3:14 long WAV file song. This was a just a test, that as you know by now, was a huge, life changing, WORLD changing success! Check out the song that changed it all below.
