AC/DC’s introduction to the world “High Voltage” came out in 1975 and let the rest of the globe know what the Aussie band had cookin’. The combination of 2 previous Australia-only albums featured electrifying guitar riffs, thundering drums and raw, unbridled energy that became a trademark of the band’s sound. Songs like “T.N.T.”, “High Voltage” and “It’s a Long Way to the Top (If You Wanna Rock ‘n’ Roll)” quickly became fan favorites and have since become timeless classics in rock music.
The album’s success helped AC/DC gain recognition both in their native Australia and internationally, and it laid the groundwork for their future success. “High Voltage” was a defining moment for the band and it set the stage for their future albums, cementing their place as one of the most influential rock bands of all time.
The impact of “High Voltage” on music cannot be overstated.
Today, the album remains a testament to the power of rock music and its ability to captivate audiences with its raw energy and unbridled passion.
