Soon, however, the brothers Malcolm and Angus Young invited Bon Scott to sing for them - he lived the rock'n'roll lifestyle with true dedication, providing a sense of urgency so essential to their material. The successful records "High Voltage" and "TNT" as well as a number of extensive tours solidified the band's reputation. "Highway to Hell", released in 1979, secured them a steady place at the rock'n'roll hall of fame. Their trademarks: aggressive guitars, a throaty voice and fairly explicit lyrics. In 1980, Bon Scott had to pay the price for his excessive lifestyle: Completely drunk, he suffocated on his own vomit. It took his successor, Brian Johnson, a long time to be accepted by the fans. Today, AC/DC is a living legend, they release a new album every now and then and sometimes they even tour the world.
