10 Best AC/DC Songs

Anthemic guitar riffs and double-entendre laden lyrics from the best AC/DC songs have been burned into the collective consciousness of rock and roll fans for decades now. And with hit albums like last year's 'Black Ice' and this year's 'Iron Man 2' soundtrack, that perception is unlikely to change anytime soon.

'Shoot to Thrill'
Widely considered one of the best AC/DC songs ever by many hardcore fans, this hard-rocking album cut from 1980's classic 'Back in Black' album is currently getting new life as the lead single from AC/DC's soundtrack for this summer's blockbuster movie 'Iron Man 2.'

'Rock N Roll Train'
2009's 'Black Ice' was AC/DC's first album in over nine years. Its lead single, 'Rock N Roll Train' -- used as the opening song on their massively successful 2009-2010 world tour -- is well on its way to becoming an all-time fan favorite. For all you office-based rockers, they've also released the world's first animated Excel spreadsheet video for the song.

'T.N.T.'
For AC/DC's first American album, 1976's 'High Voltage,' they compiled songs from the first two albums released in the band's home country of Australia, including the title track from their 1975 debut 'T.N.T.' The song's growling riff and insistent "Oy! Oy! Oy!" chant make it one of the highlights at their live concerts.

'Dirty Deeds Done Dirt Cheap'
Concrete shoes, cyanide, TNT, neckties, contracts and high voltage -- these are the dirty deeds mentioned in this sinister tale of revenge-for-hire. The single wasn't released in the U.S. until 1981 -- five years after it's Aussie debut.

'Thunderstruck'
With its crowd-energizing lead guitar run in the intro, this rock anthem from 1990's 'The Razor's Edge' became AC/DC's biggest hit in over a decade. It's nearly impossible to attend a live sporting event without hearing this song used as somebody's entrance music -- whether it be baseball's Chicago White Sox or pound-for-pound boxing king Manny Pacquiao.

'For Those About to Rock (We Salute You)'
With a name reportedly inspired by a book Angus Young read about Roman gladiators, the title track from 1981's 'For Those About to Rock (We Salute You)' is known as one of the best AC/DC songs. The band is known to end each concert with this song, complete with the firing of life-size ceremonial cannons.

'Back in Black'
The title track to 1980's 'Back in Black' features a unique, strutting rhythm that has enticed dozens of rappers to attempt to license it for use on their own records. So far all of them, from Kid Rock to Public Enemy to the Beastie Boys, have been rebuffed by AC/DC.

'You Shook Me All Night Long'
1980's 'Back in Black' announced loud and clear that AC/DC would indeed carry on successfully with new lead singer Brian Johnson. To date, the album has sold nearly 50 million copies worldwide, and this surprisingly danceable rock and roll radio staple -- frequently considered the best AC/DC song ever -- is one of the main reasons why.

'Hells Bells'
Four ominously tolling bells kick off 'Hells Bells,' the first track off the 'Back to Black' album and one of the most haunting, slow-burning and powerful songs in the band's catalog.

'Highway to Hell'
The title track to 1979's 'Highway to Hell' was the one that finally helped the band break through on the American charts. Driven by Angus Young's guitar riff, the song was inspired by Australia's Canning Highway, nicknamed 'Highway to Hell' for its steep decline just before a major intersection.
