    What about Money talks?

    • Matthew Campbell says:

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

  2. A. says:

    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.

      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.
