Trivia: AC/DC

  • Creator Backlash: Their set-lists lack anything from between For Those About To Rock We Salute You and The Razors Edge, "Who Made Who" being the lone exception.
  • Executive Meddling: The four first albums were released in US with messed up track-lists. Even worse, the international version of High Voltage is essentially a scaled-down T.N.T. with two songs from the Australian High Voltage. A handful of early AC/DC songs have still never been officially released outside of Australia, and the band wouldn't release the same studio album with the same track listing until Highway To Hell.
    • Eddie Kramer, the first producer for the Highway To Hell album, wanted them to make disco music.
  • Fan Nickname: "Akka Dakka". Certain Australian members of their fan-base staunchly believe this to be their real name. (Not related to More Dakka.)
  • Hipgnosis: Did the cover for the international version of Dirty Deeds Done Dirt Cheap.
  • No Export for You: The original High Voltage and T.N.T. albums never saw a release outside Australia.
  • No Such Thing as Bad Publicity: At the 1974 Sunbury Music Festival, they got into a brawl with members of Deep Purple, and were happy for the publicity.
  • The Pete Best: Dave Evans, their first singer.
    • In fact, every bassist and drummer before Mark Evans and Phil Rudd would fit this trope.
  • Short-Lived Big Impact: Even after Bon Scott drank himself to death in 1980, he's still fondly remembered as one of hard rock's most popular vocalists.
  • Troubled Production: Rock Or Bust due to Phil Rudd, according to Angus and Cliff.
