Trivia: Ac Dc
  • Creator Backlash: Their setlists 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 tracklists. Even worse, the non-Australian version of High Voltage is essentially a scaled-down T.N.T. with a couple of 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 fanbase staunchly believe this to be their real name. (Not related to More Dakka.)
  • Hipgnosis: Did the cover for Dirty Deeds Done Dirt Cheap.
  • No Export for You: The original High Voltage and T.N.T. albums never saw a release outside Australia.
  • The Pete Best: Dave Evans, their first singer.
  • 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.
