The band's No. 1 hits from "Help!" to "Hello, Goodbye" are now available for purchase.

For the first time ever, the Beatles' repertoire is ringtone-able.

The band's 27 U.S. and U.K. No. 1 hits are now available for purchase on iTunes as 30-second mobile ringtones.

Each ringtone costs $1.29 (the price of a song) and can also be downloaded on iPads and iTouches.

The roster of Beatles classics include "Hello, Goodbye" (oh so appropriate, cell-phone wise), "Eleanor Rigby," "Ticket to Ride," "A Hard Day's Night" and "Help!" The ringtones echo the track list for the band's 1 complication, released on iTunes last September.

The band -- a favorite of the late Apple founder Steve Jobs -- has slowly entered the digital music market. In November 2010, their song catalog and albums finally debuted on iTunes, satisfying fan demand (and onstensibly, the group's wallet).
