AC/DC are an Australianhard rock band, formed in November 1973 by brothersMalcolm and Angus Young, who continued as members until Malcolm's illness and departure in 2014. Commonly referred to as a hard rock or blues rock band, they are also considered pioneers of heavy metal, though they have always dubbed their music as simply 'rock and roll'.
AC/DC underwent several line-up changes before releasing their first album, High Voltage (1975). Lead singer and co-songwriter Bon Scott died on 19 February 1980. The group considered disbanding but decided to continue and set about finding a new vocalist: Brian Johnson. Later that year, the band released the new album Back in Black; a tribute to Bon Scott. The album became their all-time best-seller. AC/DC has sold more than 200 million records worldwide.
