So who does everybody like? Bon Scott or Brian Johnson?
Bon Scott did '74 Jailbreak through Highway To Hell.
Brian Johnson did Back in Black to the present.
Highway to Hell is probably my absolute favorite!
I enjoyed Ballbreaker as well as The Razor's Edge from Brian.

Yes I absolutely love this band!! (My third fav band ever behind Metallica and GNR) One of the few great bands I've still to see live . Angus Young must be up there with the greatest guitarists ever (top 3 in my opinion!!)
I love both eras of AC/DC but probably just prefer Bon's material the man was a genius. However I'm going to contradict myself and say that 'Back In Black' is their best album.
I would also reccommed that you guys check out the 'Live At Donington' DVD it's absolutely flawless!! I also can't wait until the 'Plug Me In' retrospective DVD boxset is released in a few weeks covering live performances from the whole of the band's career it's going to be fantastic!!  :D  :headbanger:

I love all AC/DC, but prefer the Bon Scott era albums. Highway to Hell is my favorite album too.

YEAH now we are talking!!  :P
ACDC are my fave band ever! just never get sick of them.  I think Highway to Hell is my fave album, although its a tough choice. but Touch too Much is the best song out! I know not many people agree with me but I also really like Blow Up your Video, so its between those two.
I like Bon better, but I also like Brian. Who would have thought someone could take over a band like this, and do it so well?

Razors Edge is my least fave, way too over produced and Stiff Upper Lip hasnt really got any stand out songs either. Although I still like them, just my least favourites.

I LOVE THIS BAND.

I agree, it is all good, however I prefer the Scott era ... especially on High Voltage.

Now THAT is a great album often overlooked by Fake fans.
My favorite song would have to be Whole Lotta Rosie....I guess because I'm a whole lotta me!

AC/DC rocks. I like both Bon Scott and Brian, but Bon is my favorite. Highway to Hell is the coolest album I think. Great guitar riffs, but I feel that some songs might sound too similar. The riffs are just a little different and similar melody, with small changes. But many songs are unique and AC/DC is always fun to listen to.

Gotta hand it to AC/DC, they're an absolutely fantastic band, though i actually prefer the Brian Johnson (Current) years, but Bon Scott was still pretty cool.

Yea no reason why you shouldnt pick Bon Scott, probably one of the best frontmen out there, Brian Johnson is good but he even said he was tryn his hardest to get where Bon Scott was in singing.
