AC/DC Albums: Hard Rock Royalty
AC/DC, and their many albums, songs, concerts, and tours, may be one of the most monumental rock bands in history. Hailing from Australia, AC/DC has changed the way we enjoy, gage, and listen to classic rock. Let’s begin by taking a look at some of AC/DC’s most monumental, bone-jarring albums in no particular order.
“Back in Black” Most fans would expect a list of the best AC/DC albums to include this classic. Not only is this album a true classic, but it may be one of the best comebacks in Rock ‘N Roll history. What most casual fans don’t realize is that this album was dedicated to former lead vocalist Bon Scott. Some of the classics from this killer album include “Back in Black,” “Hells Bells,” and “Shoot to Thrill” just to name a few.
“Highway to Hell” This was the final album that featured late-vocalist Bon Scott, who tragically died shortly after this album was released in 1979. “Highway to Hell” brought AC/DC to the forefront of the Rock ‘N Roll scene. While other power-houses like Black Sabbath and Led Zeppelin had already produced their best music prior to 1979, AC/DC was just in their prime. Some of the best tracks fro m this album include “Night Prowler,” “Walk All Over You,” and “Highway to Hell.”
“Let There Be Rock” If the previous fore-mentioned albums were main-stream classics, than “Let There Be Rock” was the predecessor of these classic albums and laid the ground work for their creations. “Let There Be Rock” features a wide-variety of songs that display the young band’s skills. Some of the most memorable tracks off this album include “Let There Be Rock, “Whole Lotta Rosie,” and “Overdose.”
“Dirty Deeds Done Dirt Cheap” Another classic from AC/DC was this predecessor to “Let There Be Rock.” “Dirty Deeds…” gets down and dirty, paying homage to AC/DC’s garage jam sessions. Some of the best tracks off this album include “Ride On,” “Squealer,” and “Big Balls” among others.
“T.N.T.” Rounding off our list of the best AC/DC albums is this classic from 1975. “T.N.T.” features the fire-power that AC/DC has been known for over the decades. Some of the best hits on this album include “Live Wire,” “T.N.T.,” and “It’s a Long Way to the Top (If You Wanna Rock ‘n Roll)."
