Many people consider AC/DC one of the greatest rock bands of all time. This blog is not one of them.
This blog will hesitantly admit to enjoying some of their work1.
Making fun of AC/DC is enjoyable because they have basically shown no development in their music for 45 years. Some bands show consistent development and artistic creation over their lifetimes. AC/DC live in an artistic time machine.
So, to rile up some of my friends and make fun of Angus’ stupid school outfit, let’s do something simple.
If you weren’t already clear that AC/DC ran out of ideas back in 1974, I present to you, every song that the band has made with the word “Rock.”

What A Rockin’ Blog Post
It should also be mentioned: 3 of their albums also have “Rock” in the title. Their last album, inexplicably, has 4 songs with “Rock.” AC/DC is not just out of ideas. They only had about 3 ideas to begin with.
It should also be pointed out that my Yoast SEO WordPress plugin has downgraded this post because 13 consecutive sentences start with the same word (Rock, of course). Thanks AC/DC!
