AC/DC – The thunder from down under and possibly the biggest, loudest thing that has ever come out of Australia. Unless you have lived under a rock all your life, you know who this band is. Original lead singer Bon Scott passed way too early, but I believe Brian Johnson has filled the shoes extremely well. Angus and Malcolm Young complete the original lineup and hard, fast rock are what these guys are all about. From the early days of Dirty Deeds Done Dirt Cheap, to the excellent movie soundtrack of Maximum Overdrive, they have a style all their own.
TNT, Big Balls, Wole Lotta Rosie, Thunderstruck, the 80’s classic hits seem to go on and on. One thing I don’t understand though. Where does Angus Young get all the energy to keep doing show after show like he does? The school boy uniform, and the constant running across the stage is a sight to witness. I often wonder how many uniforms he has worn, and where he gets them. For most bands, the lead singer is the center of attraction. With this band, the lead guitarist is the main figure. Talk about talent, how does anyone run and play the guitar at the same time? I don’t mean a slow steady trot, either. Angus is in a full out sprint constantly during the show. The other band members are’nt no slouches, the wall of sound they put up is almost intoxicating. Loud drums, loud bass, loud rhythm guitar, just loud!!
My personal Top Ten AC/DC song list.
10 – Hells Bells
9 – Shoot To Thrill
8 – TNT
7 – Back In Black
6 – Jailbreak
5 – For Those About To Rock (We Salute You)
4 – Moneytalks
3 – You Shook Me All Night Long

What would your top ten list look like? Do you agree or disagree with me? Hopefully you will remember all of these classic 80’s music hits. I suggest breaking out your favorite AC/DC album and playing it loud from start to finish. Get pumped and enjoy!! Remember, play it loud, but most of all play it proud! Rock on!
