Sydney, New South Wales, Australia (1973 – present)

AC/DC is an Australian band formed in Sydney, New South Wales, Australia in December 1973 by Angus and Malcom Young. Their albums have sold in colossal numbers; the total is now estimated at well over 200 million copies worldwide, with the 1980 album Back In Black selling over 21 million in the US alone and 40+ million worldwide, making it, according to statistics, one of the best selling albums in the world, outsold only by Michael Jackson’s ‘Thriller’, and tied with Pink Floyd’s ‘Dark Side of the Moon’. Their newest album released in 2008 entitled Black Ice is critically acclaimed even ahead of its release. The band has had two distinctive lead singers, and fans tend to divide its history into the “Bon Scott era (1974-80)” and the “Brian Johnson era (1980-present)”.

Most fans will agree that lead guitarist Angus Young (Now living In The Netherlands) is the face of AC/DC, appearing on the cover of most albums. His wild stage antics and schoolboy uniform have made him one of the most loved guitar players of all time. He has the unparalleled ability to captivate an audience of over 50,000 people with just the sounds of his guitar and his facial expressions. Most footage of Angus consists of him either doing Chuck Berry’s patented Duck Walk across the stage, or of his mop of hair flying around as he rocks through one of his famous solos. Aside from captivating solos, he has also created some of the most well-known riffs together with his brother Malcolm Young.

    I just felt like expressing it due to the "Yay another back in black clone." shout. That was all. Well, yeah, I got the humour.

    yeah ....i got your point and as i suspected you got mine and the humour intended...... and although the opinion was attacked no piont was i trying to invalidate your point,jus asking why the need to express it ,given that although a valid point we still buy and listen to ac/ point was to try and explain why we still do and you got that i think ....hence the o.k. but then s3nny ???????

    I didn't feel offended at all neither that the point I was trying to make was attacked. Well, if you like what AC/DC have been putting out lately then you're probably gonna like the upcoming album too. AC/DC have found their "formula" of making music and I can tell you they won't ever change their style because they've had a fanbase for decades that love what they do as they do. That's what I meant with "but I suppose that is ok if you like them.". I don't really listen to AC/DC anymore but they were a huge influence on me 4 years ago when I was just getting into rock and metal music.

    funny isn't it that halmic ......based on his answer got what i was saying and you don't.......i'm sure halmic is more than capable of defending his position ,but chose not too.Really.... it's you who are close minded by trying to defend a position that's not defendable .Not one of your arguements to date has defended in a positive way a negative opinion .my repeated questions has resulted in being called an' ignorant cunt ' ha ha

    ha ha know i've blown your arguement out of the water..... purely based on the 'ignorant cunt' rant.Oh your so open minded can i send you a friend request.

    mmmmm still missing the point.....ok i already know that some people think that ac/dc are repetative in some people as a fan why do i need to be reminded of this....what possible objective can be achieved from that comment ? please focus and answer that.....then think a little further and give an example where a negative opinion you have read,has changed your opinion of a band .i already have heard the negative opinions ,as have most if not all fans of ac/dc so what is the intention of some body posting them ....i gave examples i have listened to lots of bands that have not impressed me for one reason or another but at no point did i seek to express those opinions on the shoutboxes here.....Why? because it's for your right to look on pages of bands you don't ones stopping you...but if you write negative posts then your opening the door to a reply

    from my point of view you're an ignorant cunt because you won't accept any other opinion than your own. which is sad, because experiencing music is even more exciting if you are capable of sharing good and bad moments with other people. that is the whole idea behind social media sites like you'd only have to be open minded.

    because it's part of the opinion of some people. why is it so hard for you to understand that? i don't think that hamitic wanted to start an argument or offend anyone. you were the one who attacked him for his post. he didn't attack anyone. if you feel offended by it, it certainly is your problem because you took it personal. pink floyd and led zeppelin are an example for that, but i won't go to detail because it'd blow borders here. acdc may not, but some bands do read and/or post on "you have the option not to listen", are you retarded? how can you know the work of acdc if you don't listen to it? you HAVE to listen in order to form an opinion on a band. stop the 'troll here, troll there' paranoia and act like a grown man. because sometimes i listen to the music i grew up with and when i have some time on my hands i check their shoutbox. why would that be a problem for anybody? just because i don't like listening to them 24/7 doesn't mean i hate them or whatever.

    P.s. what's really boring ,are people making the same pointless observations and posting them...........if your gonna troll at least have a new angle...hopefully humorous way of doing it.....some of the stuff on nicklebacks page is inventive and funny ,same for megadeth and metallica.some of the you tube spoofing is hilarious

    the fact that ac/dc are concidered repetative by some, is not missed by any ac/dc fans, so why do we need to be reminded of that by anyone? If the opinion raised has only the intention to cause arguement or offence then it's not valid,please give an example of where you have read a negative opinion of one of your favourite bands that changed your opinion of them.Bands don't read these pages when they are at the level ac/dc are,therefore any opinion expressed is directed at the fanbase and not the band.again to repeat myself have the option not to listen....and trolls put up comments in shoutboxes for negative reactions and attention ....just like the children they are.Obviously the diversity point was lost on you and the question of trying to get you to explain why you look on a bands shoutbox when your not into them

    maybe because a circlejerk is not in everyone's interest? a big variety of opinions (positive ones as much as negative ones) are more vital for a band or fanbase than sucking their dick all the time. you can only learn from mistakes or widen your horizon from opinions other than your own. on the other hand it is most definetly okay if a band has found their signature sound, like acdc. hamitic wrote that ac/dc haven't changed their sound for an eternity, which is true. you can't deny that. as a fan (or a more frequent listener) you should know that better than everyone else. that isn't necessarily a bad thing and nobody said that it is. it might be boring for some people (like me), but that says nothing about the quality of the music. now you need to realize, that other opinions may hold some truth in it. do yourself a favor and drop sentences like "don't listen to it", "don't visit the shoutbox if you don't like 'em", or "u a troll?". that shit is nothing but ignorant and immature.

    @ impronen......yes it is a worry but on the otherhand i comes down to the same old question....should a band disband when one member becomes ill , dies or leaves and the truth is ....its up to the remaining band members....we as fans only have the right to stop buying there product.the bands desicion will be based on a far more knowledgable insight than any of 'us outsiders' and should simply be respected

    @ s3nny well hamitic has a voice and replied to my comment.......and maybe got the tongue in cheek capiche.i wasn't angry with his comment as many bands have the same critique leveled at them....i was questioning why would you feel the need to post it.It's like censorship.....why should some body have the right to interfer( with there opinion) on another persons likes......when the reality is that you just don't have to listen. his opinion wasn't asked for by us ac/dc fans...but was given take yourself..... at what point would you say that your an ac/dc fan coz your top 50 doesn't include ac/dc and yet your looking on this bands shoutbox.that's ok in it's self... but to then pass on your comment shows ignorance on your part,or your a troll,or your opinion is far more important than anyone elses, or your looking for an arguement....which is it ?...btw respect to halmic for his response as he is obviously far more intelligent than i expected,given his response

    I'm kind of worried about that no-one (other than me) seems to mind that the new album is apparently made without Malcolm. It jus isn't right. I know a lot of people probably felt the same back in 80 when Bon was gone but at that time, they were a band at they're creative peak. Currently not so. And if there's one thing that makes AC/DC sound like AC/DC it's the way Malcolm plays riffs with the accuracy of a clock. Not in a monotonic way, just very, very precisely. I can't imagine the band with another rhythm guitarist.
