The Top Ten

Back in Black
All songs of this album is Legendary!
Back in Black is the all time greatest rock album made by the greatest rock band ever
nuff said
I think it's pretty obvious Back in Black is the best AC/DC album of all time. It has their best song, "Back in Black" and is the second-highest selling album of all time. Many other notable AC/DC songs and hits are from the album, too, including "Hells Bells, " "Shoot to Thrill, " "You Shook Me all Night Long, " "Have a Drink on Me, " and "Rock and Roll Ain't Noise Pollution. "
[Newest]This album could be considered a greatest hits of all hard rock!

2Highway to Hell
Sadly the last album before Bon Scott's death, "Highway to Hell" lifted AC/DC's popularity largely. I believe "Highway to Hell" is the signature song of the band and certainly their most popular, but "Back in Black" is probably better. Another notable song from the album is, "If You Want Blood (You Got It). "
I was fortunate enough to see two Highway to Hell tour shows within a year of Bon's death. I bought Back in Black upon its release and found it a fine album... But in Bon's absence, the band was just never the same. Bon's voice was simply capable of so much: not just in terms of range, intonation and phrasing, but also sarcasm, irony and fun. I choose this album as the best not because it is clearly a better product than albums previous to this, but rather because it's a solemn reminder to what might have come had we not lost Scott in February 1980.
From the beginning with Highway To Hell, power flows trough your hears, until the very end with Night Prowler, the perfect ending.
Bon Scott is a legend.
[Newest]One of the best hard-rock albums in history.

3Let There Be Rock
You can listen the whole day and night...
This album along with Dirty Deeds Done Dirt Cheap and Back in Black is the best album. Whole Lotta Rosie is one of the greatest tracks ever
This album along with Dirty Deeds Done Dirt Cheap and Back in Black is the best album. Whole Lotta Rosie is one of the greatest tracks ever!
I think "Let There Be Rock" is a great album. It's actually one of my personal favorites. Hits from the album include, "Let There Be Rock, " "Whole Lotta Rosie, " and "Hell Ain't a Bad Place to Be. "
[Newest]Just the way it should be...

4High Voltage
High Voltage was not very critically successful during the time of it's release. It received much criticism for it's, well, loudness. The band also had a wild behavior at the time. However, it performed well in the charts.
Best AC/DC and one of the best Albums of all time in my opinion.

Features the unique edgy Rock and Roll sound only heard from AC/DC all the way through.

AC/DC doesn't do bad songs, this makes album makes no exception!
This basically is an International version of TNT, The only difference being this features the song She's got balls insted of School Days


[Newest]Plug it in and turn it up!

5The Razor's Edge
I have AC/DC 1990 album taken from forth coming album "Razors Edge" that has Thunderstruck on one side and Fire Your Guns on other with photos made into vinyl have not been able to find one like it anywhere. Great album!
got the 6 greatest songs in the world on it
The Razors Edge is a pretty good album. It didn't go to the extreme commercially and critically, but it has some good songs. The best song from the album is "Thunderstruck, " which is considered one of the best AC/DC songs of all time. "The Razors Edge" is probably the second best. Another notable song from the album is, "Moneytalks. "
[Newest]A very underrated album, should be no lower than 3.

6Dirty Deeds Done Dirt Cheap
Bon Scott was so much better than Brian Johnson. Don't get me wrong Brain's voice kicks ass, but he is nowhere near the energy and charisma of Bon Scott. Dirty Deeds's title track is one of their best songs. Also I just want to point out that 4 of the top 5 on this list are from the Bon Scott era.
Who doesn't love this album?


Australian version with Jailbreak and RIP Rock in Peace is the way to go.
[Newest]Ain't no fun waiting around to be a millionare

Oh dear. How can everybody not realise that this is AC/DC's finest hour? This is one of the greatest rock albums ever. This was AC/DC when they where dangerous. Down Payment Blues and Sin City are the album highlights but there really isn't a duff song here at all. The production values match the music too. I actually pity anybody who thinks that Back In Black is in the same league as Powerage
Their most overlooked and under-rated album. Perhaps not as immediate as Let There Be Rock, but this has all the power and a whole lotta soul... Bon's lyrics on this album are from the heart and his most intelligent, and the guitars are blistering.. I challenge any fan to listen to this back-to-back with Highway to Hell and not come away preferring this one. This is the last album which truly showcases the hooks, the riffs and the last which fully lets Angus loose on those solo's... On every track!
I will never get tired at looking at the cover of the Powerage album. It just looks so awesome! The most popular song from the album and my most favorite was, "Rock 'n' Roll Damnation. "

8For Those About to Rock We Salute You
You're all retarded. This album holds a collection of songs that together forms the 2nd best album of all time. Each song is amazing. Back in Black is overplayed and doesn't deserve to be top, along with most ahead of this. All the people who aren't true fans who only know Back in Black decided to include their vote.
Stuck up much? People can have their own opinions, and can prefer more popular content to the more obscure even if they are, as you call them, "True Fans".
This is another one of my personal favorites by the band. Despite, "For Those About to Rock (We Salute You)" obviously being the most popular song from the album, my favorite one is, "Evil Walks. "
Way too low of a spot for this album. Are you kidding me his voice is better than it was on back in black. This is the second best album brian has done.
[Newest]Why is this album ranked 11th? In my opinion, it's their 4th best album - maybe their 3rd best after "B in B" and "H to H"...11th is way too low for this masterpiece. Ridiculous!

9Black Ice
Despite not being one of their original albums, I enjoy it very much. It received generally positive reviews and brought a big comeback for the band. The two most popular songs from the album were "Rock 'n Roll Train" and "War Machine. "
I love all their albums! I don't think Fly on the ever got the credit it deserved I mean Fly On the wall, Shake your foundations, First blood, Danger, Sink the pink, Stand Up, Hell or high water - all fantastic songs!


It was rated best rock album 4 2009. Rock on AC/DC!


10Who Made Who
Awesome album! It has an amazing mixture of songs, well worth purchasing.

The Contenders

11Blow Up Your Video
I don't see why people dislike this album this album is amazing, there is (this mean's war, nick of time, that's the way I wanna rock 'n' roll, heat seeker, ruff stuff). And more this album and Fly on the wall are the best most under rated album's also Ball breaker. This is one of my favorite's and Who Made Who is also under rated and I have this as a vinyl (record) and if you haven't heard this album go out there buy it and if your disappointed then your not a true AC/DC fan. There's more than back in black and highway to hell so listen to some that you've never heard
An album that not many people know but it is great. Songs like Two's up and That's the way I wanna rock n roll is great "This means War" is also a good way to end the album. Everybody should buy this album. It is up there with the great Ac/Dc albums
Some say the Razors Edge brought AC/DC out of their creative rut, but I say it's this album. After 2 lackluster studio releases they finally came back with their strongest release in years. Heatseeker, that's the Way I Wanna Rock N Roll, Two's Up, Go Zone, Nick of Time, This Means War... I could go on, but I suggest you check the album out for yourself.
[Newest]This is a perfect album. It's the second best album of all time that they made.


I love this album for Multiple reasons. 1st off, their musical style became more advanced. They had MUCH more variety, with every song sounding different and non-repetitive. Every song has either a new awesome riff, or amazing vocals. Instead of their normal bludgeoning rock, they go for more of a calmer and easy going approach. Each song starts off slow, but hen quickly escalates to a very loud and fast paced song. A VERY underrated album. My Picks: Hard as a Rock, Burnin' Alive, Hail Caesar, and Ballbreaker.
Classic album! Should be in the top list!
Best album to me not a bad song on it

13Flick of the Switch
A true gem, not as commercially successful but awesome start to finish

Guns for Hire
Bedlam in Belgium
Think it should be in top three. Great album start to finish highly underrated
Couldn't agree more. Great album
[Newest]Nervous shakedown best song

14Stiff Upper Lip
This is a latter-day Powerage, full of soulful songs that really gel together to make a great album.
Plays it way too safe & isn't interesting at all.

15Rock or Bust
This is a fantastic comeback. Definitely not the best band's album, but one the most important for one reason, even without Malcom and Phil, AC/DC rules. It's long way to the top is you wanna Rock N Roll, and they've done it! No one can stop AC/DC, except (according to Angus) the death of every members!
Keep Rocking, from France.
In rock and roll we trust, its rock or bust
This is easily their best album yet.
Best riff yet by rock or bust
Best sport song by play ball
Miss adventure, rock the blues away
Great songs
Great album


This was my first AC/DC album I ever had, and it is one of my favorite AC/DC albums I ever had! Out of Dave Evans, Bon Scott, and Brian Johnson Bon Scott is my favorite! My favorite songs on this one is the whole album! I always liked AC/DC when I would listen to my dad's cds but this one made me a true AC/DC fan!
Has some good stuff on it


For me is the best album ever!

17Iron Man 2
This technically isn't an AC/DC album, but if you go to the official website and scroll to the bottom it shows a list of all their albums, and this is part of the list. AC/DC has never released a greatest hits album, so this is the closest to one they will get. This album is the soundtrack to the 2010 film, "Iron Man 2. " While many hits are on this album, not all of their absolute best are on this album, including "You Shook Me All Night Long. " However, it includes their two best songs, "Back in Black" and Highway To Hell" and many other fan-favorites.

18Fly on the Wall
Way too low! What a kick-ass record!
Kicks ass, their 2nd best album!
The ravest and hardest hard rock album ever times, too too hard and raw also AC/DC

19If You Want Blood You've Got It
Why is this album not present? And the remaining albums on this poll are all in the wrong order. Powerage at no. 7 and Let there be rock at no.3? - behave!
Arguably the best live rock album ever bar none! Surprised its not already on this list and not in the Top 5 albums!

20AC/DC Live
Easily there best album, yeah it's all there good songs but hell they are probably better live than recorded, not many bands can say that
This is pretty much a greatest hits cd. Many bands are not as good live but AcDc is even better live.
This album got me into ACDC. Should not be down here


22'74 Jailbreak

Love this why back in black in it though?

24Back Tracks
It's a good album,

But not enough to be in top 10!


26Live At River Plate
I think it is the best AC/DC live album. I don't know why it's so low.
