iTunes Review

Released at a time when disco and punk were polarizing, dominating forces, Let There Be Rock sounded like the work of rock 'n' roll primitives locked away in their own world. While each AC/DC album seemed to ramp up the intensity and menace, this 1977 effort seemed almost brutal in its attack. Riffs were faster and laced with fuzz on the "Route 66"-esque "Bad Boy Boogie" and the salacious "Whole Lotta Rosie." While Angus Young's fretwork has never lacked energy, on the title track he practically sounds possessed. The band is pared-down and ferocious on Let There Be Rock.

Customer Reviews

It's about F ----ing time.

Hell yeah! there is gonna be some head bangging tonight.

Bon Scott at his best

This is hands down the rawest and best album AC/DC has ever recorded. Angus' chugging guitar riffs, with blistering solos and Phil's catchy drum beats give way to the raw power of Bon's voice. Every song is great but stand out tracks are "Go Down", "Let There Be Rock", "Whole Lotta Rosie", "Problem Child", and "Hell Ain't a Bad Place to Be". Do yourself a favor buy this album, AC/DC at their heaviest, rawest, and at their best.

Download "Crabsody in Blue" to compliment "Let There Be Rock"

A forgotten AC/DC gem is "Crabsody in Blue" which was released on the Australian version of "Let There Be Rock." The international releases of the album "Let There Be Rock" did not include "Crabsody in Blue" since it's reference to the STD "crabs." However, this lost bluesy rocker can be found on AC/DC's compilation "Backtracks," which is available on iTunes. Download "Crabsody in Blue" so you can listen to "Let There Be Rock" as Bon and the boys intended for their fans to do so. Nevertheless, the sound quality of the songs is immaculate and "Let There Be Rock" would be a great album to start off your AC/DC collection.

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...
