AC/DC – For Those About to Rock (We Salute You)

Chart Entry: Jan 2 & jan 9 (2 weeks)

The follow up to 1980’s highly successful Black In Back, the sophomore release for lead singer Brian Johnson did more. For Those About to Rock spun the hit “Get It Up” upon its release on October 1981 and the title track would see radio play on March 22, 1982, being one of AC/DC’s biggest hits and usually their show closer.

The album would be AC/DC’s only No.1 album in the U.S. until Black Ice in 2008. Despite the lack of number one records, AC/DC would enjoy a long and successful career. Singer Brian Johnson stayed with AC/DC until his forced exit in February 2016 due to hearing problems.
