On this episode of The Rock and Metal Profs, Court and Matt take a close look at AC/DC during the Brian Johnson Era. After the tragic and untimely death of Bon Scott, the band was at a crossroads; "Highway to Hell" was a smash success, and their star was rising internationally. Without missing a beat, they brought in Brit vocalist and ex-Geordie front man Brian Johnson. Incredibly, fans embraced Johnson warmly, and AC/DC's next album "Back in Black" would become one of the most successful albums in music history. The Profs discuss the "Mutt Lange Triumvirate", their later catalog, and the band's unwavering dedication to producing kick-ass rock and roll, even as trends and record execs demanded that they change. They refused, and we are all so grateful that they stayed true to their roots. CRANK IT UP!
