FLASHBACK: AC/DC’s Rock Hall Induction

Brian Johnson celebrates his 70th birthday today (October 5), and with the announcement of the 2018 Rock and Roll Hall of Fame nominees also coming down today, it’s appropriate to look back to 2003 when AC/DC received their Rock Hall dues.

And then, it was time to rock!  Just like the entirety of AC/DC’s career, the band’s night of honor was all business, no bullsh*t, but still a ton of fun.

We fans wouldn’t have wanted it any other way.
