Editors’ Notes

The guns literally came out blazing for the tour that surrounded the band's chart-topping 1981 album. In fact, this album's title track would provide the bombastic close to most of their concerts in the years to follow. In a career not lacking in bold statements, "for those about to rock / we salute you" seemed like the boldest of all–the new rock gods honoring their flock. Brian Johnson's second album with the band also took the group further away from their blues-y roots and straight into the heart of hard rock. The streamlined, clean riffs of "I Put the Finger On You" and "Let's Get it Up" were template-setting arena rock numbers that showed off choruses that were more like soccer chants.

Customer Reviews

HEAVY METAL 80's!!!!!

This album is by far the darkest heaviest Metal album of the 80's AC/DC ever released. A very underrated album indeed and in my opinion a worhty follow up to their best selling album ever Back In Black! Songs like "Inject The Venom" and "Evil Walks" say it all and I must add that the production quality on the album was just perfect for the time. Great Album all the way!!!

FINALLY

This album is a MASTERPIECE!!! I saw AC/DC for the first time on this tour at the old Phila. Spectrum (R.I.P.) What an amazing show. The only thing that could have made the show any better would have been if they did "Night of the Long Knives," my favorite song on the album. I personally think this is better than Back In Black, and the best AC/DC album with Brian Johnson. Do yourself a favor...if you don't have this, GET IT NOW!!!

great album

everyone knows for those about to rock, but i think i put the finger on you, evil walks, night of the long knives, spellbound, andlet's get it up are equally good

Biography

Formed: 1973 in Sydney, Australia

Genre: Rock

Years Active: '70s, '80s, '90s, '00s, '10s

AC/DC's mammoth power chord roar became one of the most influential hard rock sounds of the '70s, and is now one of the defining sounds of rock and metal. In its own way, it was a reaction against the pompous art rock and lumbering arena rock of the early '70s. AC/DC's rock was minimalist -- no matter how huge and bludgeoning their guitar chords were, there was a clear sense of space and restraint. Combined with Bon Scott's larynx-shredding vocals, the band spawned countless imitators over the next...
