Overview

These Australian hooligans could have folded up their tent and skulked off into oblivion after the death of charismatic frontman Bon Scott, but they chose option B, which meant downing a few bottles of "sustenance," enlisting an even more over-the-top singer, and recording this balls-out disc. New recruit Brian Johnson wasted no time in letting people know that he intended to stay the debauched course, yowling through anthem after hedonistic anthem, including "You Shook Me All Night Long," "Let Me Put My Love into You," and, of course, the massive title track. Yes, there's a nod to their fallen comrade -- the mournfully tolling bell and jagged guitar intro to "Hell's Bells" -- but AC/DC apparently figured that Scott would be best remembered by carrying his torch (as well as his libido and liquor stash) on and on. Two decades later, that decision seems wiser than ever. A pure trash-rock classic.
