AC/DC Primer – Underappreciated & Overlooked

Author: BD Joyce

Hot on the heels of the Hits primer comes an arguably more interesting AC/DC playlist, given the ubiquity of some of their biggest songs. Of course, their discography inevitably contains a certain amount of filler, and some of the mid-80s albums are of value primarily to completists or the most dedicated genre obsessives, but beyond their most well-known tracks lies a tier of great songs that are in some cases every bit as good as the hits, and also reveal dimensions of a sound that can be more diverse than they sometimes get credit for.
