Join me as we delve into the epic journey of this iconic band, explore their impact on music, and discover how you can show your allegiance with official tees from teerex.


Formed in Sydney, Australia, in 1973, AC/DC burst onto the scene with a raw and raucous sound that would come to define hard rock for generations to come. Led by the charismatic duo of guitarist Angus Young and his brother, the late vocalist Bon Scott, AC/DC quickly gained a reputation for their high-energy live performances and no-nonsense approach to rock music.


In 1976, AC/DC released their breakthrough album, "High Voltage," which introduced the world to their signature brand of hard-hitting rock 'n' roll. Tracks like "It's a Long Way to the Top (If You Wanna Rock 'n' Roll)" and "T.N.T." became instant classics, showcasing Bon Scott's gritty vocals and Angus Young's electrifying guitar solos.


Tragically, just as AC/DC was reaching new heights of success, Bon Scott passed away in 1980, leaving behind a legacy that would be impossible to fill. But rather than fade into obscurity, AC/DC rose from the ashes with a new vocalist, Brian Johnson, and released what would become one of the best-selling albums of all time: "Back in Black."


Released in 1980, "Back in Black" was a triumph of rock 'n' roll resilience, with anthems like the title track, "You Shook Me All Night Long," and "Hells Bells" solidifying AC/DC's status as one of the biggest bands in the world. The album's success catapulted them to superstardom and cemented their place in rock history.


Throughout the 1980s and 1990s, AC/DC continued to dominate the airwaves and concert stages with a string of hit albums, including "For Those About to Rock We Salute You," "The Razors Edge," and "Ballbreaker." Their music, characterized by its driving rhythms and infectious energy, became the soundtrack for rebellious youth everywhere.


But AC/DC's influence extends far beyond their chart-topping albums and sold-out tours. They are also credited with pioneering the "rock anthem" genre, with iconic songs like "Highway to Hell," "Thunderstruck," and "Dirty Deeds Done Dirt Cheap" inspiring countless imitators and establishing AC/DC as true rock icons.


In 2020, AC/DC made a triumphant return with their seventeenth studio album, "Power Up," proving that even after four decades in the business, they still have plenty of thunder left in their veins. Filled with classic AC/DC swagger and killer riffs, "Power Up" is a testament to the band's enduring legacy and unwavering dedication to their craft.
