The Top Ten

Back In Black
Awesome song this is one of the best songs of AC/DC! This is the title track of the second best-selling album of all time, and is by far their best song would tell you that

Man do I feel like jumping while hearing this song! CHEERS
This is the title track of the second best-selling album of all time, and is by far their best song.
Best solo ever better than the stairway to heaven solo and I an not giving you my opinion even jimmy page would tell you that

THE GREATEST SONG & INTRO EVER! Needs to be in first place, come on guys, let's get this song to first place, where it belongs.


Well, Back in black is a very great song, but thunderstruck is the best song that ac/dc have made. If you just ask Angus you'll have this confirmed!
Why is this song not in the top spot. It has a way better intro and is much more engaging than Back In Black. I just wish they would put there songs on iTunes then I would be set.

3Highway to Hell
Insane song. This should be at the top for sure. No band ever comes close to what AC/DC is. AC/DC forever!
The best exponent of no fear to the hell! That's why we write AC/DC with capital letter, and this is a classical exponent of rock!
Wow I didn't know acdc went down the road to MY suburb.
Laugh out loud I love this song.

4You Shook Me All Night Long
My favourite ACDC song! While not as well known to others as say, Back In Black, it's so cheerful and makes you happy! Plus one of the catchiest choruses EVER!
This song really speaks about ac dcs versatility and how they are flexible, unlike what many critics say they are- predictable... I love this song
Amazing! Really gets you up and rocking, true classic. If you say you don't rock to this, you're a liar! AC/DC will never be irrelevant.

Simply best song of AC/DC. Its the one that got me to listen to them.
This song on tony hawk pro skater 4 was my childhood. My sister and I would always play that game and set to only play this song over and over. Great riff and lyrics a true classic.
Best one, great music and lyrics. I like it because it's simply the best. For really Rock'n'Roll lovers and those who knows what real music is.

6Hells Bells
Man, this song should have been in the top three. Amazing guitar riffs. I've listened to this countless times. I wish I could catch AC/DC performing it live.
This is an easy and awesome play for all those guitar players out there.
Oh my god! How this song can be not in the first place? The best of ACDC! One of the greatest hard rockheavy metal songs ever!

7Shoot to Thrill
Vote it up
I mean its also has been featured in IRON MAN!
After back in black and highway to hell,.. SHOOT TO THRILL deserves the the third position,. At least I think ya'll need to listen to this track again and then decide,... If you still think the ranking is correct,.. Then listen to it again and again till it reaches #3...
I wish there was a botton to choose all there songs but I can't :(

But I got to say this is my favorite one out of ac/dc's songs. Its a very catchy song that I listen to every time before I go to bed... Its that Badass. It may be Number Seven on this list but in my mind its number ONE!
I just love this song, its so catchy and lively you just wanna listen to it all the time

8For Those About to Rock (We Salute You)
Too bad not many people know about this awesome song. Once the cannons start firing on the latter part of the song, you just can't help but feel the energy of the song. Fire!
What the hell? A masterpiece like this should be the 1st. Come on you haven't even listened this song and you vote for something else. So obvious.
How is this? how can that freakin awesome song can be number 8?! COME ON THIS IS THE BEST ACDC SONG EVA! this one should be in 3 first best acdc song with you shook me al night long and highway to hell

9It's a Long Way to the Top
this is one song you get hooked up to and never get bored!
Guitar is although, simple sounding, very very addictive!
One Hell Of A Song!
Very Classical When Bon Scott Plays That Bagpipe!
Love It And Listen To It Everyday!
Such a rocking song, if you took rock n' roll and boiled it down for a hundred years, this is what would be left.

10Dirty Deeds Done Dirt Cheap
Bon Scott will never be equaled and this tune is the epitome of classic ACDC. You immediately get hooked by the opening guitar chords...
Best song ever! Especially on the live album which got me into AC DC. Rock On!
One of my favorite songs by AC/DC, gotta love a bit of the old AC/DC songs sung by Bon Scott R.I. P

The Contenders

11Let There Be Rock
Greatest song ever it should be in like the top tens at least it is a hit acdc always play at at concerts and has the best solo the world has ever seen. Also album is great


This song rocks! Hear the Angus Young solos, the Bon Scott voice and the fusion of the drums and bass and you will know what I am talking about! The video is great too


This should be #1. Love that relentless driving beat. It starts out hard and fast and keeps it up! It's like a marathon, don't they ever get tired? And Angus has an amazing solo, again, he's like the energizer bunny! When they were elected into rock n roll hall of fame this was the song Brian Johnson integrated into his speech. Enough said... Let there be rock! Rules!

12Rock 'N' Roll Train
Why isn't this in the top 10? It is the song which made me get attached to AC-dc in the first place!
The guitar riffs makes you dance the hell out of you. It is on board with back in black and thunderstruck. One of best ACDC songs! You simply enjoy every second of the song and it never gets boring!
The top song the band.
Awesome song and amazing solo by Angus.

13Whole Lotta Rosie
what the hell is this song doing so low it has one of the best riffs ever and then it just starts going crazy. which is why it one a poll in kerrang years ago


Power and power second to highway to hell from the scott era
my personal number 4
Best solo ever! Great song and preformed live one of the greatest songs to be made from the album Let There Be Rock. If you haven't heard this song than go search this on you tube you'll listen to it over and over again Angus plays the solo like his life depends on it and the begging is awesome also!

14Rock and Roll Ain't Noise Pollution
This song is simply one of the greatest classics ever made.. So low down the order just doesn't do justice to this awesome song!
Best guitar riff out of anything they made. And rock and roll really ain't noise pollution


More comments about Rock and Roll Ain't Noise PollutionListen to sample

Very underrated. The vocals and its contrast with the guitar part is amazing. It's so catchy and the guitar solos are cool. Not their best song, but it should at least be in the top ten.
One of my favorite songs of all time! I can't believe it's at 14 right right now. By far one of their easiest songs to get in to. I guess I'm just shocked more people aren't into this.
I p[icked this one cause I was listing at it at the time ><. but all there songs rule there just amazing at rock there new album is not as good as the others though ><

"There was a friend of mine on murder and the judge gave him fell. Jury found him guilty, gave him sixteen years in Hell! " Fantastic song about a man doing all in the name of Liberty!
How is this song so low? What a fantastic rock song! One of the very best of the Bon Scott era, which was when they did their best work.
Such an awesome song, so bloody catchy.

17Stiff Upper Lip
this one belongs in the top 3! definitely one of my favorites... greetings from germany! PUSH THIS SONG! & Rock On!
Because it's one of the best AC/DC songs ever! Gives a good feeling when you're listening to this while driving.

It's a must have on top rock songs of all time!
Just got into AC/DC this year. Buying their CDs one at a time. Just caught up with this one and SUL stood out immediately. Being a newbie I come in with fresh ears that haven't heard these songs since the mid 70s. Also liked Meltdown and Safe in NYC.

19Touch Too Much
Oh come on this song doesn't belong all the way down HERE! At least in the top 25! Very LAST? Are you kiding me?! Come on move it up a little bit!
One of my favorite songs with Bon Scott. Should be in the top 10.

Vote for it.
Thanks for all the fish
this. is. un. freaking. believeable! what is this song doing down here? am I the only person who's listened to this and realised what an awesome song this is? I can't listen to it without singing, or dancing for that matter! if you like ac/ dc in the slightest, you should get yourself on youtube and listen to this song right now!

20High Voltage
well you ask bout the clothes i wear and you ask me why i grow my hair
This song should be number 11, 12 or 13 not 17 vote this one up come on! Amazing guitar singing bass drums love this one great tune really electric
This is classic acca dacca. I love Brian Johnson but Bon Scott is a legend and this tune just rocks. Its got its roots in Chuck Berry and it adds a snarling twist. Its brittle opening chords and cool groove just can't fail to get the party rocking. The vocals are quiet in the mix and its production is so creative. This needs to go up in the ratings.

21If You Want Blood (You've Got It)
Mate, if you are just starting to like AC/DC, or you enjoy the bands music, this is a great song to listen to and even play on the guitar. I totally recommend this song and or album to anyone that is a huge AC/DC fan like me!

AC/DC Is the best band ever and any other band couldn't make better songs even if they tried!


My absolute favorite ACDC song ever. All of their songs are great but this one just gets you pumped up for anything! I always listen to this in my 67 Mustang and have hit 100 more than a few times with this song blaring!
Damn good riff, every time I hear this song, no matter what mood I am in, this song pulls me in and I jam my a$$ off!

One of my favourite AC/DC songs of all, I can't belive it is not at least in the top 15. "Here, comes the RAZORS EDGE! THE RAZORS EGDE! Such an awesome song
This is one of my favorite songs of all time. Simply Love it, wish acdc had more songs like this one. Woo!

23Who Made Who
The perfect Song. Has the best vocals, the best Bass and killer drums. Rock and roll at it's finest.
So many to choose from, but in my opinion this is their best, maybe I just feel the others are overplayed.
Who made Who Rocks
If you don't rate this as their best then you haven't listened to it. When Angus fires up his axe this song just goes ballistic

I always hated ACDC. Did a google search for must have metal albums and back in black was at the top. I was blown away. I now have almost the entire collection. This one is probably my favorite at this point. Funny how a band I hated is now up there with the likes of Led Zep, U2, Floyd. Love ACDC.
This is a bestest song ever!!!!!
AC/DC RULZ!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
One of their best.

29Have a Drink On Me
Has to be top 10, come on! Blinded out of your mind! Sour Mash and cheap wine! Forgot about the check get hell to pay! Great riff, great jam. Top 10!
Why is this not higher on the list? Everyone wants to hear this song when they are drinking. Classic dive bar song!
This should be a top 10 song. In my opinion, It's a Long Way to the Top If You Want To Rock And Roll isn't that good to be called the 10th best AC/DC song of all time. There are a lot of really great songs from AC/DC, and It's A Long Way doesn't deserve to be number ten.

30What Do You Do for Money Honey
In my opinion, this is the hardest rocking' AC/DC song around. That mammoth riff, those screaming vocals, the pounding drums and of course, that sexy, thumpin' bass. Roughest, toughest song there is. Rock hard, rock on!
This wasn't on here so I put it on... Come on... It's an amazing song why isn't it already on here!

35Sin City
One of the best live songs, check it out on the 1979 paris dvd, great lyrics, great riffing, great duck walking, more energy that a Duracell factory
VERY underrated song, not one of the 'usual' favourites - you can hear the edge in the song especially with the crashing out guitar.
My Personal Favorite ACDC Song. Its very underrated and I've never heard ACDC Play it live

36Walk All Over You

38Shot Down in Flames
Awesome! What I believe to be a truly phenomenal example of what AC/DC can do. This song is totally epic and I could listen to it all day. In my opinion it should be way further up the list.
Bon Scott is the lead singer and this is a masterful rendition of this song. I could rock to this all day. Angus excedes as usual on lead guitar. This is by far one of their best songs ever. Brian is good but not Bon. Sorry Brian.
Love this song so much could be my favorite if all of them weren't

41Night Prowler
Awesome conclusion to their album "Highway to Hell"
My favourite song by far, that really demonstrates their skills.
Fantastic blues rock that has no real flaws at all. If you haven't heard it, look it up.
At #36 Night Prowler is highly underrated. Should be top 15. One of the most sinister, hard hitting, blues rock songs out there. Like Golden Earrings Radar Love, listen to it while traveling on twisting roads on a moonless night. Crank the windows down, and the volume up, and feel alive.
Wow, didn't know do many people don't know this song, one of their best

46Live Wire
First of all, for as much respect and admiration as I have for Brian Johnson, Bon Scott was the greatest frontman of AC/DC ever! He is in the top 5 of hard rock/metal frontmen of all time! Therefore, all AC/DC songs done with Bon at the helm trump anything that they ever did with Brian Johnson. All the top AC/DC songs should be Bon Scott songs. AC/DC also sounded better with Bon. Angus' and Malcolm's guitar work had always been great but they were frenetic when they were with Bon! They were so much heavier with him and at times bluesier too. There are many great Bon Scott AC/DC songs but Live Wire is my pick. It's heavy, has a great build-up, great leads from Angus, great rhythm from Malcolm, and excellent vocals from Bon. The best version of this song is actually not the studio version though (although that one is great) but is the version from Live from Atlantic Studios in the Bonfire box set. It's so heavy and awesome! Really gets your head banging. Never before have I heard AC/DC sound as heavy as they do on that live album! And Bon's vocals are fierce, man! If you don't know it already you NEED to check it out! AC/DC forever m/ m/
This Song shows the raw power that they put into all there music, the absolute thought of this not even being at the top makes me cringe at your judgement of this amazing band, though why put these songs in a list? Every song may have the same chords, same simplistic feelings, but the soul, the effort and dedication that this band put into there music is what I love, I use to hate AC/DC then I listened to the whole album highway to hell, then Fly on the Wall, Blow up your video and so on and now I love every song they've done!
Watching them play it in London in 1976, class! Not their most famous song, but sums up the attitude of Bon ^^ the boys very well. Their early stuff really does rock!

55Nervous Shakedown

When you consider the quality of Brians voice, song pace, epic highs and lows, energy, and how this song kicks ass on some many levels... You end up with perhaps one of the greatest ACDC "sleeper" songs of all time. When I want to listen to something awesome that isn't one of ACDC's obvious hits, this is where I end up at. It doesn't disappoint.

underrated but greAT riff and songm/ malcom young rocks i think it should be in top20

This song is highly underrated to say the least, It's definitely one of, or if not the greatest AC DC songs and deserves to be much, much higher on this list, just listen to the opening riff in it's self it's got to be Angus Youngs' more creative most powerful riff's. Listen don't vote for popularity, vote for quality, if we were voting for popularity this list would be filled with Britiny Spears songs. I suggest that you all give this song another close listen and you will see what I'm talking about.
