Three Brothers, a Sewing Machine, and Glam Rock: The Story of AC/DC

AC/DC goes down in music history as one of the most successful bands of all time. The group has spent decades releasing albums, selling out concerts, and making teenagers’ moms angry. The Australian rock band, formed by three Scottish-born brothers, has been described as hard rock, blues rock, and heavy metal, but AC/DC likes to call themselves a rock and roll band. They’ve had their many moments in the sun, so to speak – soaring high to superstardom. But, they’ve also faced the darkest days – having tragically lost a dear friend, a front runner of the band.

Despite the odds, AC/DC endured the lows that rock bands tend to experience and continued to create and play the music that came to define a genre. And they did it the only way they knew how to: loud. Fans might also be happy to hear that the band announced that a few members have very recently re-joined the band.

So, if you’re looking for an excuse to play their songs at full volume and discover the true story of the loudest band on earth, then in you’re in the right place.
