About this album

Let There Be Rock is the third international studio album by Australian hard rock band AC/DC, released in June 1977. All songs were written by Angus Young, Malcolm Young, and Bon Scott.

Originally released on Atlantic Records, this edition has sold over 2 million copies in the United States. The album was re-released in 2003 as part of the AC/DC Remasters series.




Overview

Let There Be Rock is the last AC/DC recording to feature bassist Mark Evans, who previously played on the international versions of High Voltage (May 1976) and Dirty Deeds Done Dirt Cheap (December 1976).

As with AC/DC’s previous albums, there were differences between the international and Australian edition of Let There Be Rock, released in March 1977. For the US market (and later for the CD releases), the Australian version’s racy “Crabsody In Blue” was replaced with a shortened version of “Problem Child” from AC/DC’s Dirty Deeds Done Cheap, released in September 1976. The international version also has a slightly modified track order.

Additionally, the international version of Let There Be Rock featured a different cover from that of the original. This cover marked the debut of AC/DC’s classic logo. The Australian edition was eventually repackaged with the international version’s cover, marking the first time an Australian AC/DC album cover was matched to its corresponding international edition.
