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. Even then, 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 Other Darrin: Brian Johnson for Bon Scott, Cliff Williams for Mark Evans, Stevie Young for his uncle Malcolm Young, Chris Slade for Phil Rudd, and Axl Rose for a hearing damage-afflicted Brian Johnson (who officially still is the band's lead singer, but has been sidelined from touring) for the latter half of the 2016 Rock or Bust tour.
  • The Pete Best:
    • Dave Evans, their first singer, who was ousted for having a Gary Glitter-esque Glam Rock style.
    • In fact, every bassist and drummer before Mark Evans and Phil Rudd would fit this trope.
  • Role Ending Misdemeanor: Once Phil Rudd got arrested in 2014, his "predecessor" Chris Slade was brought back to the band.
  • 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.
  • What Could Have Been: Steven Adler was going to join in 1990 after Simon Wright left, but the offer was withdrawn after Axl revealed onstage exactly why he was fired from Guns.
