35 years in the black

ACDC-BackInBlackOn this date in 1980, rock band AC/DC released the album Back in Black. It was the band’s seventh studio album, and their first with lead singer Brian Johnson, who replaced the late Bon Scott. It has been certified as the second best-selling album of all time. Back in Black, in my humble opinion, is tied with Led Zeppelin II as the greatest rock and roll album of all time. Hard to believe it’s been 35 years already. Time flies when you’re alive.

Here’s a video of the album’s title track.

    Wow,it really HAS been THAT long…already…lol
    I admit to not having followed them when they first hot started…they GREW on me over time, and I really started to love thier music in he late 1990s.

    Adding in their “involvement” with the IRON MAN movies…that “sealed the deal” for me…heh.
    I’d wouldn’t mind mentioning them with ZEP in the same sentence

    A great group that has done all right over the years (with BOTH lead singers)
