    I just got into them recently. I didn't know what I was missing, cause damn do they rock! So what are your favorite albums? And do you prefer Scott or Johnson?

    As for me, I think everything they've put out is pretty damn good. I even like their most recent albums Ballbreaker and Stiff Upper Lip. And I prefer Scott of course. So tell me your AC/DC stories.

    Favorite album: Highway To Hell

    The stuff with Scott was better as it seems more fresh and raw, but I own and listen to all of it.

    Rock!

    1st time I saw them (1977) they were described as Punk rockers.

    Speaking of AC/DC, how are the new remasters? Particuarly Back in Black? Any improvment on the sound?

    OK, this may be seen to be a blaspheme, but.......
    I am a big AC/DC fan. I tend to favor Bon era stuff, but Back in Black stands in my book as one of the best rock albums ever recorded.
    In any event, there is a band called Rhino Bucket, that is a dead nuts copy of Bon era AC/DC. They have the vocals, they have the guitar, they have the groove......
    I first heard them on KNAC (Internet Radio), and thought sure I was listening to an AC/DC track I had not previously heard.
    Anyway, it was Rhino Bucket. FWIW, they actually have a cut on the Waynes World soundtrack. I usually dispise bands that clone the sound of another band (think Kingdom Come as a Zep clone), but these guys are damn good.
    They do have a web site, www.rhinobucket.com (you can down load MP3 samples of their tunes), but unfortunately are out of print. I paid dearly for their 1st two CDs on E-bay.

    I'm a huge AC/DC fan. I even have both versions of HIgh Voltage.
    I like the Bon Scott albums more than the Brian Johnson albums, but Back In Black is still my favorite of them all.
    Does anybody know when Let There Be Rock is coming to DVD?
    I also heard on the radio the other day that they will have a new album out soon. I think the date was sometime in the early spring.

    Regards

    Rock on! AC/DC is one of my all-time favorites. Saw them in 1982 on the For Those About to Rock Tour in Denver and again in 1997 in Louisville, Kentucky. Long time in between shows.

    Back in Black and Highway to Hell are my personal faves and the best from each singer.

    Long live AC/DC.

    I heard Rhino Bucket for the first time back in maybe 1992 or 1993. I could not believe how close they sounded to AC/DC. Hmmm...I may have to find them on Ebay as well. Would be a nice addition to my CD collection.

    long before i was into Black Sabbath & Judas Priest, or Vangelis & Mike Oldfield, there was AC/DC.
    been big into ac/dc since '77 when a friend got LTBR. haven't missed a tour since FTATR. i prefer the early stuff, but it's all great.
    favorite album: Powerage. like no other album they've done.
    when HTH came out, a friend and i heard it on the radio one afternoon on the way to a track meet. the next morning before school we called the radio station to request HTH. the DJ told us "we don't play that $hit in the morning!" and hung up on us. (SF bay area in the '70's, it was all disco stations. [​IMG] )
