why is ac/dc so incredibly popular? their biggest album, 1980's 'back in black' stands at 42 million internationally (22 million in the US alone - making it the 2nd biggest album in the US ever)! their back catalogue keeps shifting units like possibly no other band in the world.
there's something really addictive about ac/dc's sound. It's distinctive. when you think about it - no one else sounds like ac/dc... and they don't bother with "trends" or things like that. they have these powerful distinctive riffs... they just play their rock 'n roll... not reinventing anything, just doing what only ac/dc can do... playing rock 'n roll like no one else! addiction comes so easily when listening to ac/dc!
