    1. Hi Deborah. Thanks for the suggestion. Yes, it is a great song and we added it as an honorable mention fan favorite.

  1. It’s a decent attempt at a virtualy, impossible task: the definitive, AC/DC top ten; as ALL “lists” are personal & subjective.

    Studio wise, you missed:

    Live Wire
    Up to my neck in you
    Kicked in the teeth
    Playing with girls
    Send for the man
    just to list a few that they rarely, if ever, play live.


    Guns for Hire
    Sin City
    Riff Raff
    Let there be rock
    Bad boy boogie

    As I wrote earlier, it’s subjective, and I’m a bit of a fan…. I’m an old-school fan, that has seen them live in 29 countries, yes, 29; And, fortunately/unfortunately, their last 2 shows at MSG & in Philly. Anyway, thanks for your work…cheers.

    1. Thank for the feedback and list A. Yes, our lists are all subjective and yes, super fans will definitely have your own lists of favorite songs.
