Who is AC/DC?
AC⚡DC is an Australian hard rock band formed in Sydney Australia by 2 Scottish-born brothers in November 1973. The band has gone through a large number of lineup changes over the years, with brothers Angus and Malcolm Young at its core until Malcolm’s death in 2017. AC⚡DC continues producing music and performing as of this writing.
After their sister, Margaret Young, saw the initials “AC/DC” on a sewing machine, an abbreviation for “alternating current/direct current” electricity, and Malcolm and Angus further developed the idea for the band’s name. The brothers felt that this name represented the band’s energy and radical performance style. In Australia, the band is colloquially referred to as “Acca Dacca”. AC/DCs band name is stylized with a high voltage lightning bolt separating the “AC” and “DC”.
With their debut album, High Voltage (1975), began a decades-long career in which they have sold more than 200 million records worldwide and built a considerable following spanning continents. Their 8th studio album titled “Back in Black” has sold an estimated 50 million units worldwide. As the fifth-best-selling band in US history and the tenth-best-selling artist, AC⚡DC has sold more albums than Madonna and Mariah Carey.
