List Rules Vote for each album based on its quality and status within the band's catalog

AC/DC is among the most iconic bands in rock and roll history. The ultimate garage band, they have achieved a status few bands are capable of. They have the ability to appeal to fans of most any genre of music without changing their sound, and this is just one of the reasons why they are considered by many to be one of the best rock bands of all time. Vote for the AC/DC albums you love the most, and of course, rerank this list in any order you like.

Which of AC/DC's 15 studio albums rank highest on this list is arguably dependent on whether you are a fan of Bon Scott or Brian Johnson. The truth is, both fit the AC/DC sound perfectly, and Bon would no doubt look down from on high with thumbs or horns raised. There is no doubt, however, that these albums contain some of the greatest AC/DC songs ever recorded.

AC/DC is an enduring rock band in an era when great bands often fall on the wayside in favor of newer, "hotter" young groups. Why? Because this band recorded some of the greatest albums of all time. The AC/DC repertoire is chock full of amazing albums that are all classics. Now we'll get to decide once and for all which AC/DC album is the best!
