Best AC/DC Albums

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. "

I Just Tell You that this is the 2ND Album With more Copies in all the History!

Highway 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.

This is the album that really cemented AC/DC as a force in hard rock. I know it comes in at number 2 behind Back In Black but this is the album me and my friends all listened to. Maybe it's the fact that this was the last album Bon Scot sang on that makes it my number 1,however when I think about all the great AC/DC albums this one always comes to mind first.

The best album. Had the most best songs like "touch to much" highway to hell" and way more. They truly went all out on this one. Bon is a legend and will always be one AC/DC forever.

Let There Be Rock

What an amazing album. We must remember that this was the time period where genres such as punk, disco and new wave dominated the mainstream. In my honest opinion, this is one of the many albums (along with Van Halen's debut, among others) that single-handedly saved brutal, party-hard rock and roll from sinking into obscurity. Cuts like "Go Down", "Dog Eat Dog" and "Bad Boy Boogie" have some of AC/DC's best guitar riffs, fine-tuned with extra distortion and brutal attack. Meanwhile, "Overdose" and "Hell Ain't a Bad Place to Be" are cautionary tales of excessive love and lust. There's even a recycled song on here: "Problem Child", which is from AC/DC's third studio album (if you live in Australia, anyway) "Dirty Deeds Done Dirt Cheap" (try saying that five times fast). But the best tracks on here have been, are currently, and always will be the extraordinary songs that are "Let There Be Rock" and "Whole Lotta Rosie". "Let There Be Rock" is AC/DC's own twist on the Bible's own story of ...more

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

contain some of the best and most underrated song, let there be rock, whole lotta roise, go down. Let there be rock's guitar solo is my favorite.

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!

High Voltage

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!

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.

This basically is an International version of TNT, The only difference being this features the song She's got balls insted of School Days

Without this awesome album, we would've never got to hear AC/DC. Best debut album ever.


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

This is without doubt the AC/DC monolith. Clever, soulful lyrics from Bon. Brian's a top bloke, but I miss Bon's wit. The tracks are all simply awesome, in fact I think the best tracks are the least well known ones. If you want perhaps the finest album they ever recorded, buy this. How anybody can prefer BIB to this is beyond me. come on, even if not this one, number 1 "has" to be a Bon album. Sorry Brian.

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. "

The 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!

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. "

there's a number of overrated albums ahead of this one. put this in top 4 at least.

got the 6 greatest songs in the world on it

Dirty 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?

If I judged a book by its cover, then this would be no. 1. But its not. I admit Dirty Deeds Done Dirt Cheap is a good song, and Big Balls is my favorite by AC/DC, but I find High Voltage and Back In Black better.

Australian version with Jailbreak and RIP Rock in Peace is the way to go.

For Those About to Rock We Salute You

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.

With the cannons in for those about to rock it is one of the greatest rock songs whoops one of the the best songs ever and spellbound is awesome as well and so is every other song by AC/DC

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!

Black 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!

It definitely shows that making a great album is timeless, "Rock 'n' Roll Train" is definitely in my top 25 AC/DC songs of all time. This was definitely one of the best comeback albums of all time, it definitely deserves #9, because although it isn't one of their best, it's still amazing.


This is on here twice...

Love this song!

The Contenders

Rock 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

In rock we trust, it's rock or bust! And this one rocks indeed!

Back in Black and Highway to Hell will always be on top. I have this one on CD, MP3, and will be buying this one on vinyl soon too. I voted for this one because it is truly a masterpiece. While I cannot name a single AC/DC song that I truly dislike, this album has numbers that are works of art and will undoubtedly be among their greatest hits.


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

One of their Best ones!

Stiff 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.

One of Malcolm young’s best work. Awesome, electric, and true rock and roll.

When you see an album like this so close to the bottom you know there's some really great on the list.

Flick of the Switch

My favourite album of all time. It is raw, and there is no bad song on it. I love Landslide, Bedlam in Belgium, and Brain Shake. Listen to it, cause it is exactly who they are.

Along with Back In Black, Flick Of The Switch is far better than any other AC DC album with Brian...specially including overrated For Those About To Rock, and most irritated Razors Edge. This album is mix of classic Heavy Metal and Blues...great riffs, great choruses...Rising Power, Guns For Hire, Nervous, Flick, Landslide...l

A true gem, not as commercially successful but awesome start to finish

Guns for Hire
Bedlam in Belgium

Most underrated album in rock history! Pure masterpiece, great mix of bluesy heavy metal riffs, angry singing and good songwritting with memorable choruses. Unfortunately this is last great AC DC album, it is equal with Back In Black and much better than For Those About To Rock.

Blow Up Your Video

Fifth behind Back in Black, Highway to Hell, the Razors Edge and Dirty Deeds.

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.

Fly on the Wall

Way too low! What a kick-ass record!

Kicks ass, their 2nd best album!

How can they put TNT above this TNT wasn't even released in the us

The ravest and hardest hard rock album ever times, too too hard and raw also AC/DC

If You Want Blood You've Got It

I just felt like I had to put a vote in for this killer live album by AC/DC. Should be much, much higher than this. If you look back at what they were doing back in the 70's; writing short kick *** rock songs not caring what critics thought compared to others who were trying to cash in on disco or long drawn out ballads, AC/DC got to the heart of what made rocknroll so great. On this recording you really get a sense of the raw, stripped down feel of their live show. Awesome!

Greatly under rated with the best version of Whole Lotta Rosie and Riff Raff never sounds better than this

This is quintessential AC/DC. And it is the first of the two records that were the best of the Bon Scott years, which are--arguably--the best AC/DC years.

Arguably the best live rock album ever bar none! Surprised its not already on this list and not in the Top 5 albums!

AC/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

All the classics, but they just sound better and have more energy live

This album shows how strong AC DC is/was live. Thunderstruck is just amazing.

Amazing album. I usually dislike live albums but this one is great

Live At River Plate

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

Hells Best Performance and song selection!

Best live!

'74 Jailbreak

Great album with Bon scott


Why is this album stuck at # 20? It should be in the top ten! I was around in the eighties when this came out and my friends we were all crazy for it. Great title song and video to go along with it plus we never heard these songs before as they were Australian releases only up until that point. Lots of new fans were made because of this album. Hmmm?

With Baby Please don't Go, Show Buisness and Jailbreak 3 timeless ACDC classics


Amazing collection of live shows and demo tracks, love me some Bon Scott!

Love this why back in black in it though?

The Complete Collection

Acdc is cool

Back Tracks

It's a good album,

But not enough to be in top 10!

Greatest Hell's Hits

This is a double album, one cd has stuff with Bon and the other has Brian. And there are bonus songs as well.

Hells Bells

That's not an album, it's a song.

Who Made Who

"Who Made Who"
"Chase The Ace"
Great new songs worth listening to

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

Iron 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.
