The period around AC/DC's breakthrough 1979 album Highway to Hell was one of the band's most thrilling and fruitful, a time when the scrappy Aussie bar band with big dreams truly made the creative and commercial leap into legit international stardom.

But here we take a look back at the happy times when Scott, guitarists Angus and Malcolm Young, bassist Cliff Williams and drummer Phil Rudd were raising hell, taking names and securing their place in the rock & roll pantheon.
