Brian Johnson’s second album as ac/dc’s frontman, and as such helped them create a phenomenal commercial success, with both singles, ‘let’s get it up’ and the title track, charting on both sides of the atlantic. The album went on to sell over a million copies world-wide and the title track became an immediate live favourite, complete with a cannon-fire salute stage show that became instant encore material. Elsewhere, their familiar rattle remained intact, with ‘night of the long knives’ and ‘breaking the rules’ forging a familiar piece of metal.
