AC/DC Finally Comes to iTunes: What You Should Listen to First
Dirty Deeds Done Dirt Cheap (1976)
And then there are times when nothing will do but "Big Balls" to brighten your day. Sometimes you need "Ride On" to remember that even he-men like Scott had rough days.
For Those About to Rock (We Salute You) (1981)
With the death of Scott -- party hard in heaven brother -- came new lead singer Brian Johnson, who is still the "new guy" for a big portion of AC/DC fans young and old. This was their follow-up to Back In Black. This one isn't as flashy as that behemoth, but it's a great effort nonetheless.
This 1992 live album helped solidify the band's legend for their newest crop of fans, those of us weaned on Beavis & Butt-head on MTV. AC/DC wasn't just a name on a cartoon character's shirt, but a real, live, fire-breathing animal.
AND YES OK FINE I'LL ADMIT IT...
The Razors Edge (1990)
Don't hate. The first three cuts -- "Thunderstruck," "Fire Your Guns," "Moneytalks" -- make for a decadent and hooky triple threat. Yes, all very hammy, but "Thunderstruck" reminds me of the Houston Texans and then I have to bro out for a few minutes watching game footage on YouTube.
