“You Shook Me All Night Long” is one of AC/DC’s signature songs from their most successful album, Back in Black. The song also reappeared on their later album Who Made Who. It is one of the band’s top 40 singles, reaching number 35 on the Billboard Hot 100 pop singles chart in 1980. The single was re-released internationally in 1986 following the release of the album Who Made Who.

“You Shook Me All Night Long” placed at No. 10 on VH1’s list of “The 100 Greatest Songs of the 80s”. It was also No. 1 on VH1’s “Top Ten AC/DC Songs”. In the song, the lead singer Brian Johnson relates the story of a night with a beautiful woman. Guitar World placed “You Shook Me All Night Long” number 80 on their “100 Greatest Guitar Solos” list.

The re-released single in 1986 contains the B-side(s): B1. “She’s Got Balls” (Live, Bondi Lifesave ‘77); B2. “You Shook Me All Night Long” (Live ‘83 - 12” maxi-single only).

The song has also become a staple of AC/DC concerts, almost never being excluded from the setlist,[1] and it has also been considered their signature song, competing with “Back in Black ” and “Highway to Hell” for the title.

There are at least two live versions of this song that have been officially released. One of them is on the band’s album Live, the other is on the soundtrack to the Howard Stern movie Private Parts.
