One of my all time favorite bands, AC/DC were/are, plain and simple in your face hard rock! They may only do one thing, but they do that one thing better than anyone else. I don't think there's a band in the world that could pull off what they did, 17 albums worth of stripped down, raw, hard rock, and not a single ballad!

AC/DC never strayed from there roots. After awhile most bands get fat and lazy and start putting out crap. These guys still beat you over the head with a crowbar. And yes SK, not one single useless ballad. Come to think of it I bet an AC/DC ballad would still knock your socks off.

Listened to some AC/DC today, which is not at all unusual for me. I listened to the soundtrack to Who Made Who, which is unusual for me, I normally only play the Bon Scott stuff. (Who Made Who actually does have some Bon songs like Ride On)

The few ballady songs they did were pretty good too. Ride On, Rock n Roll Dream to name 2.
