2 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

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.

4 T.N.T.

Simply best song of AC/DC. It's the one that got me to listen to them.

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

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.

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!

7 Shoot to Thrill

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

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!

The only reason this is better than back in black is that I don't get tired of it with time.

To me, Shoot To Thrill is AC/DC's most progressive song. Cliff Williams' bass playing is off the charts, especially live. When you hear how he plays the bass in this song, (similar to his progressive band roots, prior to AC/DC) you can really appreciate how he was willing to pull back and make the song more important than thd bass riff. Well done, Cliff! You can't help but stand and clap to Angus' guitar tapping in the middle of the song. With Brian Johnson's unbelievable vocals, this song may be top ten of any song, ever!

8 Dirty Deeds Done Dirt Cheap

Number 8? You people are crazy

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

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.


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

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!

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

One of the coolest AC/DC songs!

"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.

Early Classic, my pic for #1

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

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!

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

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.

22 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

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


But Bon Scott had the balls (pun intended) to make a song about his gigantic balls.

26 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

27 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!

28 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.

This Is So Underrated, Best AC/DC Song Ever

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.

I like this reallty catchy song.

31 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

34 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.

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

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.
