  • On July 25, 1980, AC/DC released Back In Black in the US, followed by the album's UK release on July 31.

    Today, the album is a record-shattering rock 'n' roll landmark, passed along from generation to generation and guaranteed a spot on the shelves of every music enthusiast not living under a rock (and some that are). But, that's not how Back In Black started life.

    The story of how Back In Black was made and the frenzy it whipped up upon its release is every bit as captivating today as the 41 minute, 48 second, no bullshit, ribcage pounding record itself. Dedicated to the band's fallen friend and frontman, Bon Scott, recorded with then newcomer Brian Johnson, and described by Rolling Stone Magazine's David Fricke at the time as "kick[ing] like a mutha," Back In Black put AC/DC in households from coast to coast, ravaging their speakers in the process.

    To celebrate its 30th anniversary, we invite you to revisit the story of Back In Black, complete with videos, photos, quotes from the band, a timeline and a whole lot more.

    This is the story of Back In Black.
