Perhaps the biggest rock n' roll act in the world, AC/DC is made up of Australian and English members Brian Johnson, Cliff Williams, Phil Rudd, Malcolm Young and Angus Young. The original frontman of the group, Bon Scott, died in 1980. The original lineup created some of the most iconic hard rock songs of the 20th century, and with the addition of Johnson, AC/DC climbed to the top of the rock world and into the new millennium. The band has never been prone to frills or overly complicated songs. But it is their straightforward, hard-rocking sound that has endeared them to generations of music lovers.
If you've never heard an AC/DC song, you've probably never owned a radio. Their songs have filled the airwaves for the past 40 years, which is why cheap tickets to their shows always sell out. Some of their biggest hits include "Thunderstruck," "You Shook Me All Night Long," "Highway to Hell," "Dirty Deeds Done Dirt Cheap," "Let There Be Rock" and "Back in Black." If you're wondering why AC/DC tickets are hard to come by, look no further than their list of accolades. Aside from being inducted into both the American Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and the Australian Recording Industry Association's Hall of Fame, the band has won a number of awards. These include Australasian Performing Right Association awards for "Most Played Australian Work Overseas" and "Songwriters of the Year." They've also won a Grammy for "Best Hard Rock Performance."
AC/DC has come to define a generation of hard rockers, so it's hard to imagine them as an up-and-coming band taking inspiration from other artists. In fact, it's gotten to a point where many new-comers to AC/DC's music may not even recognize names like The Easybeats, The Rascals or Muddy Waters who are just a few of their influencers. The band also took a lot of notes from Led Zeppelin. Cheap tickets to AC/DC's tour are hitting the market now, and they are much sought-after by hard rockers young and old. The band is planning to hit over 30 major cities across the world, and it's all but guaranteed that they'll leave a blaze of rock and roll glory in their wake.
