The music of AC/DC has entertained Australians far and wide as this hard-working band gigged relentlessly across the nation after forming in the early 1970s. Eager fans happily gathered in bars, clubs, pubs, and band rooms across Australia to watch their favourite new rock band slam out shows of intense energy and skilled craft. Perhaps what would not have been anticipated by audiences at the time, was that the music and lyrics they were witnessing would evolve beyond imagination into a living cultural legacy, not just in Australia but around the world.
Their songs went on to be covered by a variety of admiring contemporaries, featured in movies, and performed on the theatrical stage.
