Y is for the Young brothers of AC/DC

acdchighwaytohellGot all the way to Y before I found a family band for which I actually own none of their albums: the Australian hard rock band, AC/DC, formed in November 1973 by brothers Malcolm and Angus Young. I have a dearth of 1970s/1980s hard rock. Still it would be difficult for me to be totally oblivious to them, if only because of the schtick of Angus’ schoolboy pants.

LISTEN to:
You Shook Me All Night Long.
Back in Black, which is one of the most recognized hooks in rock music.

If you’re up for it, HERE’S FOUR HOURS of AC/DC.

AC/DC was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2003.

But what I DO own is a hillbilly cover album of AC/DC songs. There are a lot of tribute albums of the band.

LISTEN to Full Blown Cherry – Jailbreak (Rockabilly Cover)
She Took Me All Night Long – Hayseed Dixie
2CELLOS – Thunderstruck

Unfortunately, Malcolm Young had a stroke earlier in 2014, and the status of the band is very much in doubt.
