AC/DC have reigned over rock ‘n’ roll for almost four decades. Their signature power chord rock was the sonic standard bearer of the genre they pioneered, summarised in Rolling Stone’s declaration that they ‘are one of the top hard rock bands in history’. The group has transcended their Australian roots to become a global phenomenon. Their albums consistently go platinum and they have earned their reputation as one of the best bands on the planet.

The band’s live arsenal includes ‘It’s a Long Way to the Top (If you want to Rock ’n ’Roll); ‘Highway to Hell and ‘You Shook Me All Night Long’ and their influence is felt today as strongly as ever. 2008’s Black Ice sold an astonishing more than 1.5 million copies in its first week, and would go on to sell seven million copies worldwide, spending several weeks on the top of the Billboard Top 200. In November 2012, Live at River Plate was released – the band’s first live album for 20 years.

Featuring exclusive interviews with producers and engineers, AC/DC in the Studio is the definitive account of the making of the greatest hard rock anthems of all time. Every album is featured in incredible detail, from 1975’s TNT all the way to 2008 and Black Ice.
