AC/DC’s Wild Ride on the ‘Highway to Hell’

The Four Percent

As mainstream rock softened in 1978, the Australian band AC/DC was nudged by its record label to follow the trend on its next album. The band resisted, recording “Highway to Hell” instead. The title song and FM airplay drove the album to No. 17 on Billboard’s chart.

Recently, AC/DC’s co-founder and lead guitarist Angus Young, bassist Cliff Williams and drummer Phil Rudd looked back at the song. The band is releasing a new album, “Power Up” (Columbia), on Friday. Edited from interviews.
