AC/DC’s sixth international release, Back in Black is comprised of fun and furious hits. “From the ominous tolling that opened ‘Hells Bells’ to a closing blast of defiance titled ‘Rock and Roll Ain't Noise Pollution,’ the ten songs on Back in Black rock out with brute force and raunchy humor.”

ACDC's Back in Black topped The Rolling Stone's "500 Greatest Albums of All Time" at #77. In the middle of album rehearsals, singer Bon Scott went on a drinking spree; he choked on his own vomit and was found dead in the back seat of a car. After two days of mourning, guitarist Malcolm Young thought, "Well, fuck this, I'm not gonna sit around mopin' all fuckin' year." He called his brother, guitarist Angus Young, and they went back to work with replacement vocalist Brian Johnson and savvy producer Mutt Lange. The resulting album has the relentless logic of a sledgehammer. Back in Black might be the purest distillation of hard rock ever: The title track, "Hells Bells" and the primo dance-metal banger "You Shook Me All Night Long" have all become enduring anthems of strutting blues-based guitar heat.
