Biggest Comebacks in Music Mistory

The Top Ten

1 Mariah Carey 2005 comeback after a failed movie and album

The definiton of a queen

2 AC/DC comeback by getting new vocalist

After the death of their vocalist (Bon Scott), they hired Brian Johnson to help make their biggest, best, and highest-selling album ever! Back In Black, which itself contains the best songs in their catalog! I'm not saying Brian is better than Bon, but that's just amazing!

The same year they lost bon, AC/DC creates one of the top ten selling albums of all time and became one of the greatest bands ever.

Bon died, same year they came out with back in black, 49 million records.
