AC/DC (stylized as ACϟDC) is an Australian rock band formed in Sydney in 1973 by Scottish-born brothers Malcolm and Angus Young. Although their music has been described in various ways as hard rock, blues rock and heavy metal, the band itself simply calls it "rock and roll".
AC/DC underwent several line-up changes before releasing their debut album, High Voltage, in 1975. The membership then stabilized around the Young brothers, singer Bon Scott, drummer Phil Rudd and bassist Mark Evans. Evans was fired from the band in 1977 and replaced Cliff Williams, who had appeared on every AC/DC album since Powerage (1978).
In February 1980, more than six months after the release of the follow-up album Highway to Hell, Scott died of acute alcohol poisoning. The band considered disbanding, but stayed together, and called in Brian Johnson as Scott's replacement. Later that year, the band released its first album with Johnson, Back in Black, which it dedicated to the memory of Scott.
The album propelled them to new heights of success and became one of the best-selling albums of all time.

The band's eighth studio album, For Those About to Rock We Salute You (1981), was their first album to reach number one in the United States. Prior to the release of their next album, Flick of the Switch (1983), Rudd was fired from AC/DC, and Simon Wright replaced him until his departure in 1989, himself replaced by Chris Slade. The band experienced a commercial resurgence with the release of their twelfth studio album The Razors Edge (1990). Rudd returned in 1994, replacing Slade and appearing on the band's next four albums. Their fifteenth studio album Black Ice (2008) was the second best-selling album of that year, and their biggest chart hit since For Those About to Rock, eventually reaching #1 in all the world charts.
The band's line-up remained the same until 2014 with the retirement of Malcolm Young due to early dementia (he died later in 2017) and Rudd's legal problems. In 2016, Johnson was advised to stop touring due to his worsening hearing loss. Axl Rose, the lead singer of Guns N' Roses, then became the band's lead singer for the rest of the year. Long-time bassist and vocalist Cliff Williams retired from the band at the end of their 2016 Rock or Bust world tour and the band has been inactive since then. Nevertheless, they have not been officially disbanded and unconfirmed reports of a new album and tour with the surviving Back in Black era band continue to circulate.
