Background: Released in 1980, Back in Black is the seventh studio album by AC/DC, and one of the best-selling albums of all time.

This was the first album with Brian Johnson on vocals.

The album reached #1 on the U.S. album charts and has sole more than 25 million copies in the U.S. alone. gave Back in Black a 5 star review:

The first sound on Back in Black is the deep, ominous drone of church bells — or “Hell’s Bells,” as it were, opening the album and AC/DC’s next era with a fanfare while ringing a fond farewell to Bon Scott, their late lead singer who partied himself straight to hell. … Brian Johnson’s screech is a dead ringer for Scott’s growl. … Song for song, they deliver not just mammoth riffs but songs that are anthems, from the greasy “Shoot to Thrill” to the pummeling “Back in Black,” which pales only next to “You Shook Me All Night Long,” the greatest one-night-stand anthem in rock history. That tawdry celebration of sex is what made AC/DC different from all other metal bands — there was no sword & sorcery, no darkness, just a rowdy party, and they never held a bigger, better party than they did on Back in Black.
