AC/DC’s High Voltage was originally released (in the US) on May 14, 1976 and was the band’s first international release. This album is full of the songs you know. “It’s a Long Way to the Top (If You Wanna Rock N’ Roll)”, “T.N.T”,, “Live Wire”, “The Jack”, and of course “High Voltage”. Though critics did not have much to say at the time of the release, there is still something to appreciate 41 years later.
40 years ago, on December 17th, 1976, AD/DC released Dirty Deeds Done Dirt Cheap internationally. This was the third album (second international) for the group, and contained big hits like the title track, “Love at First Feel”, and “Ride On”. “Big Balls” was also noteworthy as an attempt to get passed radio censors, framing the song as a song about large dances when it is for sure about their nuts. I personally enjoy “Rocker” and “Squealer” off the album. But let’s just take a moment and appreciate 40 years of doing dirty deeds for little to no cost, and let the rock and roll fuel your day.
