AC/DC is known as one of the greatest rock bands ever, and it’s hard to imagine a live sporting event without their music. Their hits have been played at games ever since they started putting them out in 1973, which is why some people refer to what they do as “stadium music.” But AC/DC is a lot more than just that. This is a band that prides itself on its ability to put out hard rock and blues rock jams. They have released some of the most incredible rock albums in music history, but the ones that must be mentioned here are Back in Black, Highway to Hell, Let There Be Rock and High Voltage. Highway to Hell’s significance is that it was probably the album that led them to prominence, and it was also the last one finished with Bon Scott. Scott passed away in 1980, and he will forever be remembered for his contributions to the band.
While the iconic band has been through a ton of members since the original group formed in 1973, the band that you’ll see today includes Angus Young, Chris Slade, Stevie Young and, in their last tour, Guns N’ Roses lead vocalist Axl Rose. While the music might not sound exactly the same now as it did with guys like Scott or Brian Johnson, AC/DC still puts on one of the most exciting rock shows around. You’ll still hear songs like “Back in Black,” “Highway to Hell,” “Thunderstruck,” “T.N.T.” and “You Shook Me All Night Long.” You’ll just be hearing it from Rose, which is pretty legendary if you ask us. Guns N’ Roses is one of the best rock bands of all-time, so seeing a mixture of the two groups is pretty awesome.
