A rock band from Australia. It has been disputed exactly what genre of rock music AC/DC is, but wheather they're Classic Rock, Heavy Metal, Punk Rock, or whatever, AC/DC is one of the greatest rock bands of all time. AC/DC has been considered one of the founders of heavy metal, along with bands like KISS and Led Zeppelin. In 1974, AC/DC recruited lead singer Bon Scott, and released a string of LP's. In 1975, they released their first studio album (originally released in Australia only), titled 'High Voltage', followed by 'T.N.T' shortly thereafter. In 1976, they started to gain a little bit of international success, because of the release of 'High Voltage' and 'Dirty Deeds Done Dirt Cheep' in Europe and the U.S (actually, the U.S didn't see 'Dirty Deeds' in stores until 1981, but whatever). Finally, in 1977, they released their first international album, 'Let There Be Rock'. AC/DC enjoyed radio airply, high album sales, and high grossing tours, for quite some time. Unfortunately, shortly after the release of their 4th international album 'Highway To Hell', singer Bon Scott was found dead in the back of a friends car. He aperantly died because of a combination of Hypothermia, and choking on his own vomit (a popular trend among rock stars). Scott's friend, Ozzy Osbourne, wrote the often misinterpreted song, 'Suicide Solution' about the late singer. Later that year, AC/DC recruited a new singer, the infamous Brian Johnson. They released 'Back In Black' in late 1980. It is now the 5th highest grossing album of all time-selling 21,000,000 copies in the US alone. This was because of the ever popular singles 'Back In Black' and 'You Shook Me All Night Long'. AC/DC continues to release popular albums today, and retains a vast fanbase, even through all of the changes the music industry has endured.
Most fans of AC/DC now days had no clue that they were even from Australia, or that they even had another singer who died, because most AC/DC fans now are just poseurs.
