Best AC/DC Songs

The Top Ten

1 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

In my opinion, Back In Black is overrated. Don't get me wrong, it's one of AC/DC's best, but not THE best. I mean they have better music like Thunderstruck (better solos), Hell's Bells (better lyrics), and TNT (Better riffs, solos, and lyrics). My top 10 are:

1. Hell's Bells
2. Thunderstruck
3: Dirty Deeds (Done Dirt Cheap)
4: TNT
5: Back In Black
6: For Those About To Rock
7: Problem Child
8: Rock and Roll Train
9: Shoot to Thrill
10: Heatseeker

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.

Just. Pure. Awesomeness. Epic lyrics, amazing intro, and the entire song is the whole reason I even know about 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.

Especially fitting on the drive to school in the morning.

4 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.

Brian is boss and back in black is the best album in the world

5 T.N.T.

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.

The unbeatable M-riff. It goes ahead together with bass like sneaking black panther; nasty and low.

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!

top opener

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!

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!

Should be on top beside "If You Want Blood (You Got It)

V 84 Comments
8 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

LOVE it WE SALUTE YOU!

9 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...

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

This song makes me want to host an entire race to trick people into finding pieces of Jesus and then be shot by a paraplegic’s nfinitely spinning fingernail so I fizzle out of existence across the multiverse

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

What a great riff... it really gets your blood flowing... LOVE this song!

The Contenders

11 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

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!

This is the ultimate rock anthem right here. This is what rock n' roll is all about. All summed up in one track, and done well too, almost a little too much.

12 Whole 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 - wolphert

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!

Power and power second to highway to hell from the scott era
my personal number 4

This should be #1

13 Touch 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!

This. is. un.. 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!

One of my favorite songs with Bon Scott. Should be in the top 10.

Vote for it.
Thanks for all the fish

The song Totally rocks. Beyond Stevens

14 Jailbreak

"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.

This should be Australia's national anthem!

Early Classic, my pic for #1

15 Rock 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

THIS SONG MUST BE THE NUMBER ONE OF ACDC IN MY POINT OF VIEW. THIS RATING IS SO POOR... - RIFATHUSSAIN

Insane song

V 12 Comments
16 Rock '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 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!

The best modern AC/DC song! - Dendo

17 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.

Money talks BS walks

18 If 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! - 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!

My all time favorite AC/DC song, I love it so much!

19 Walk All Over You

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.

This is THE BEST song EVER... Must be played loud. IF this song don't get your heart pumping. you MUST be dead.

Bon Scott is the greatest singer of all time and this song proves it - ACDC-

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.

20? You are crazy this song must be in top10

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

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

I laugh every time I hear this song I love it. But for some reason I feel like they were high when they wrote this song

BEST SONG EVER

24 Who Made Who

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

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

Everybody knows Thunderstruck or Highway to Hell. In relation to its underratedness Who Made Who is their best song. It has so much power, listening to it is like a 3 minute vacation.

25 The Razors Edge

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

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

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

If AC/DC and Metallica wanted a mashup, this song and For Whom The Bell Tolls would be AWESOME!

26 Beating Around the Bush

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

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

27 Riff Raff

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.

My favourite AC/DC song of all time. Needs to be much higher up this list " shame they don't play it live anymore!

Pure Rock and Roll ladies and gents

28 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

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 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!

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.

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

32 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

33 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

One of the best songs of all time. 3 awesome solos and Bon Scott's last song - ACDC-

One of their best.

This one should be much higher

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.

37 Sin City

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

Should be number 1. Those who haven't voted for this haven't got a clue..

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!

Amazing song. Sounds like no other AC/DC song.

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"

47 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.

48 Shot 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.

The voice of Bon catch you in the heart, would deserve to be better known!

Dude how is this not in the top 10!
