Highway To Hell
by AC/DC
Were they metal? Boogie? Punk? Rock ‘n’ roll? It was hard to put your finger on just which style of rock AC/DC specialized in throughout their first few studio offerings with singer Bon Scott. But one thing was for certain — they were rapidly building a large and loyal fanbase throughout the world, and it seemed to all coalesce in what would turn out to be the band’s last album with Scott, 1979’s Highway to Hell.

Already stars back home in their native Australia, AC/DC — who were comprised of Scott, the brother/guitar duo of Angus and Malcolm Young, bassist Cliff Williams (who replaced Mark Evans in ’77), and drummer Phil Rudd — were several albums into their recording career…

In the book AC/DC: Album by Album by Martin Popoff, former Guitar World Editor-in-Chief Brad Tolinski explained, “That higher level of discipline on Highway to Hell, that sort of lifts them from being this great little high-energy pub rock band into something worthier of the arenas. And that little bit of spit and polish on the choruses, like you hear on [the song] ‘Highway to Hell’, makes it just a little bit better for radio, too.”
