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
Squealer
Playing with girls
Send for the man
just to list a few that they rarely, if ever, play live.

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.
