Back In Black, featuring “You Shook Me All Night Long,” “Shoot To Thrill” and the title track, is the best-selling studio album of all time by a band.

Highway To Hell, released in 1980, was AC/DC’s first hit album in the U.S. The Razors Edge features the classic single “Thunderstruck,” the video for which has been viewed over a billion times on YouTube.

The classic 1976 album Powerage contains the single “Rock And Roll Damnation,” the band’s first European hit.

The iconic cover of For Those About To Rock (We Salute You) features a “Twelve-Pound Cannon” from the 19th Century. The band still incorporate cannons into their live set to deafening effect.

High Voltage, the band’s international debut, included tracks from their first two Australian albums.

Dirty Deeds Done Dirt Cheap was initially unavailable in the U.S. for five years. The album eventually rose to No. 3 on the Billboard chart, selling over 6,000,000 copies.

AC/DC provided the songs for the soundtrack for Stephen King‘s movie Maximum Overdrive from Who Made Who, which included three brand new tracks including the hit title track.

LIVE, 1991’s double live album, was recorded at Donnington Park & Birmingham in the U.K., Edmonton in Canada and Moscow.

The legendary multi-million-selling band played their first show on December 31, 1973, at Chequers Nightclub in Sydney, Australia. Now, 50 years later, AC/DC has thrilled their fans by announcing the “POWER UP” European tour for Summer 2024.
