2 Thunderstruck Thunderstruck

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. - CrazyBoyAdrian

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.

This a good song one my my favorite songs by ac/dc

3 Highway to Hell Highway 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.

Lyrycs and music make this the best song of AC/DC.

Simply best song of AC/DC. It's the one that got me to listen to them.
Because BABE I'M TNT! I'M DYNAMITE!

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.

BEST not 4th it s the BEST com on it is the best

5 You 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.

6?! I liked it better when it was 5. - scienceLover10

6 Hells 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!

Perfect song! Brian Johnson's best vocal. I wonder if Mutt Lange pushed Brian to those high notes. It just keeps ascending. Bon was great but this song could only be produced this way with Brian Johnson singing. 5 stars!

7 Shoot to Thrill

The absolute best

I just love this song, its so catchy and lively you just wanna listen to it all the time

Loved it in avengers

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. It's 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!

8 Dirty 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...

Number 8? You people are crazy

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

9 For 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.

Epic

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

10 It'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. - Psykosauron

Great song if you like rock n roll which I do

Fastest, most intense guitar riff AC/DC has ever done -

Love the whole song! Amazing! Great lyrics and sick guitar solos. Epic song.

The Contenders

11 Whole Lotta Rosie

Number 1 for me and many others by far!

Top 10: 1. Whole Lotte rosie. 2. For those about. 3. Let there be rock. 4. Hell's bells 5. Highway to hell. 6 hell ain't a bad place. 7. Rocker. 8 shake your foundations. 9. Riff raff. 10 thunderstruck.

12 Let There Be Rock

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 - rock2metal

One of my favorite acdc song

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 - khali366

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!

13 Rock and Roll Ain't Noise Pollution

It's truth and sounds great. - SharkDestroyer

Rock n Roll anthem

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

14 Comments
14 Rock 'N' Roll Train

I remember hearing this a lot in 2008 - trains45

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 top song the band.
Awesome song and amazing solo by Angus. - i-love-rock-n-roll

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!

15 Jailbreak

Part where it goes silent and Bon goes “with a bullet in his back! ” and then they go back into the chorus is just magical.

"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.

One of the coolest AC/DC songs!

16 If You Want Blood (You've Got It)

Yeet
this is so great

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! - adamzupancic

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!

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!

17 Touch Too Much

Should be number 1 and I am one of the biggest ac dc fans of my generation

19 Moneytalks

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.

VERY UNDERRATED, best ac/dc song and with the best solo, this song should be in the top 3, and back in black under top 20, people vote it because it is the most known song, but it isn't so good.

This is definitely a top 5 songs, known long and wide as a rock n roll song. Idiots say this isn't good

20 Stiff 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.

um, this song is totally underrated.. PUh-LEASe tell me y this song is not number ONE? - Asianavynuke

21 The Razors Edge

Very underrated, their most evil sounding song

Different from any other ac/dc song, should be higher

How can it be out from the top ten? Comes the razor's edge! The atmosphere of it is magic.

This song is absolute magic! It has a nice dark tinge to it that most of their other songs don't really have! And might I say that the backing vocals just add to the whole dark feel! Top Notch

22 Givin' the Dog a Bone

THIS isn't ON THE LIST ITS THE SECOND BEST OF BACK IN BLACK shoot to thrill is the best

I can leave the air guitar down when this track comes on..

One of the best.

23 Walk All Over You

Way too low

Every time I try to consider this one being lower than #1 in the ranking, it simply doesn't want to go.

This is the best ACDC song of all time... Best riff, Must be played loud... All true fans know this is the best!

Best song I've heard by AC/DC... And I'm quite the fan. Clearly this song should be up in the top 10.

Imagine my surprise when my baby sister knew all the words!

Hilarious! Cannot help but sing along every time I hear it. The innuendos involved are just priceless.

Remember when a great group was fooling around and the product of that was still fun? Me too. - Cyri

Loved the double meaning in their song titles. SINK THE PINK

25 Rock or Bust

I liked this song when I first bought the album but when I heard it on the Grammys it went way up for me. The audience, including many celebrities, couldn't help nut get into it. It's that kind Iof song. It's so hard for rock bands to come up with a true rock anthem in this world of sampled music, drum machines and auto tune. This stripped down ball busting tune accomplishes just that. Love it!

Their new album is underrated and the best album of the year. - gemcloben

In what we trust, it's rock or bust...

26 What 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!

Signature song

27 Who Made Who

When you are Stephen King's favourite band, you know you're doing something right. Great song on a great soundtrack (made entirely by AC/DC) on a movie that does not deserve such good music.

Who made who is such a deep concept yet we all know who made us, God. But besides that this is such an amazing song. ACDC FOR LIFE/AMERICA FOR LIFE TOO

The perfect Song. Has the best vocals, the best Bass and killer drums. Rock and roll at it's finest.

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

28 Girls Got Rhythm

Purely amazing.

This one should be much higher

One of their best.

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.

29 Rock 'n' Roll Damnation

As much respect I have for Brian Johnson bon Scott was my favorite. Songs like this should he way higher.

LOVE IT, BUT I LOVE THEM ALL. SO MANY TO LOVE. COULD NOT CHOOSE 1 TO BE BETTER THEN ANOTHER. THEY ALL HAVE THERE PLACE, SO ENJOY!

Love this song,i don't know why it's so low cause I find it was the power ballad of the Powerage album

30 War Machine

God this song is pure genius! Heavy, brash and typical AC/DC. What an awesome riff. This song needs to be higher up for sure, along with Black Ice.

Sounds like Enter Sandman throughout the whole song.

Say you prayers little one
Don't forget my son
To include everyone

Push your foot to the floor

Great lines

Tihis is the best song

32 Riff Raff

One of the most powerful riffs ever - Bon at his mischievous best - To me this is their No. 1 track!

Best Bon Scott era AC/DC song!

Riff Raff, especially the live version from 1978's If you want Blood album, is the ultimate rock and roll song. Sure it is not a mainstream favourite but if you listen to this song a number of times it grows on you and reveals itself as a unique and powerful track that was often used by acdc as a concert opener in the day. My tip... Play it loud!

My favourite Angus Young guitar solo and riff.

I like this song, maybe my 5th overall after highway, shook me all night long, back in black, and rosie.

She got the jack yeah really really killer sounds I really enjoyed it.
She gave me her mind,
She gave me here body,
But she gave it to anybody,

Got ta be higher!

This is of the best...so under rated!

Got a one-way ticket... going the wrong way.

Great rock interpretation of the blues!

Very cool, blues song. I love this song. You gotta Ride On with this song. It's something to listen to when you don't want anything blasting in your ears.

My personal favourite ac/dc song, and I was raised around them, bon scott lives on forever in our hearts! Rock will never die.

36 Dogs of War

Its new...a definitely a TOP TEN material...

Most fun song to play on guitar

Ok, I agree "Back in Black", "Highway to Hell", "Thundestruck" are pretty good songs, but... How the hell can this masterpiece be placed 44th? This song is legendary! It has a great riff, tight drums, epic backing vocals... Best song ever!

37 Big Gun

Great starting solo, very rhythmic. Best for people who are looking to get their fix of energy in a song. The solo is the cherry on the ice cream of this song. Very underrated song in my opinion.

Grossly Underrated Song! I get pumped every time I hear it... Awesome intro riff gets stuck in my head all day and I love it...

Very underrated song. Awesome guitar work and vocals. Should definitely be in the top 10.

Rock out to this song is a must pure brilliance everything about it is awesome. Must be in my top three at least. Lisa

38 Fire Your Guns

Great song by AC/DC - unknown-soldier

It deserves to be in d top 10 at least guys! Listen 2 it once! Gotta make you dance!

Razors Edge is a great album!

39 School Days

What I like about ACDC is the ironic lyrycs
I think this song should go up a little

ACDC says smart things with funny ways

And awesome solos

40 Have a Drink On Me

One of Rock &Roll’s greatest party songs!

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!

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. - reddy4u2

Why is this not higher on the list? Everyone wants to hear this song when they are drinking. Classic dive bar song!

41 Let Me Put My Love Into You

Easily top 30. AC/DC has a ton of great music. I’ve got like 20 songs in my top ten.

Memories of my mate singing to his girlfriend in the car while the rest of us where out side singing having a beer.

One of the best for sure I can't believe its not farther up the list

42 Shot Down in Flames

Great song. Head banging stuff.

Way, way, way too low!

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.

What is this doing 153?

44 Anything Goes

This is a great song! Clean guitars, smooth vocals. Smokin guitar work and a great melody. I've been an AC/DC fan for 35 years and came upon this song recently because I don't have the Black Ice album. This is now in the 10 on my list. Blown away that it's AC/DC!

I love it! I found out that this song written mostly Malcolm. Brian Johnson's voice sounds awesome.

This song is just awesome their arnt no stopping Brian should be in the top five

Hell yeahh! This song awesome! Dafug guys! And thins song should be on 5

45 Ballbreaker

The Singing parts are so awesome and epic!

Its guitar is so catchy. should definitely be in the top twenty at least come on

I don't believe that this song could be here and not al least at the top ten, come on vote for this one

One of the best songs ever! Should be # 2! After "Back in Black"

46 Are You Ready

151? what! It was really high on the AC DC Guns and roses combo list...

This song is one of the best... needs to be in top 50. Clean intro riff, rest of the song, solos are great!

Can't believe this isn't higher up the list. Really catchy and has an absolutely epic, and unique intro. Also the guitar solo is awesome!

144? what this is the best one ever

47 Sin City

Great song, underrated, should be number 1

Come on why isn't this song higher up in the list? Great tune, great vocals, great riff. Everything about this song is well done. Songs from the Brian Johnson era that aren't even that good like from the ball breaker album and black Ice. I have a ton of respect for those albums it's just that these songs deserve
More respect and viewership. Only true AC/DC fans know more from the bon Scott era

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

My Personal Favorite ACDC Song. Its very underrated and I've never heard ACDC Play it live

48 Baby, Please Don't Go

Baffling rating. Definite Top 10. Breathtaking riffs and breaks. Mark M

No 58 hey? Although not an original, definitely a top 10 candidate. Studio version is awesome.

49 Back in Business

Amazing song and riffs. I've heard every song. This, send for the man and this house is on fire are my 3 tops

50 Night 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.

Indeed this song should be in the top 15. A song which gives a thumping end to the highway to hell album, this is also the last song Bon sang. Sad that they don't play it live anymore. Peace mate. - Whiplash_123

Wow, didn't know do many people don't know this song, one of their best - kity21

Night Prowler 36? Really? The sound of the guitar is undoubtedly the classic ensign of the Rock 'n' Roll. Just listen it again and enjoy it slowly
