Most critics complain Back in Black
, the album AC/DC recorded after the death of their original lead screamer Bon Scott, is ridiculously juvenile, obvious, snickering, bludgeoning, derivative, single-minded about sex and booze, a big cartoon. All true, of course, and--on rock 'n' ragers like "What Do You Do For Money Honey," "You Shook Me All Night Long," and the title track--all great. As Scott's replacement Brian Johnson reminds us, loud and crunchy, no-holds-barred "rock and roll ain't noise pollution...it makes good, good sense." Never trust anyone who refuses to drink domestic beer, laugh at the Three Stooges, or crank Back in Black

metal tin (8 inches High x 5.75 inches Wide). Back In Black
is AC/DC's 7th studio album and was originally released in July of 1980. It is the first album recorded with singer Brian Johnson, after original lead singer Bon Scott died in early 1980. The album contains some of AC/DC's biggest hits, including 'Hells Bells', 'You Shook Me All Night Long', and the title track 'Back In Black'. According to Angus Young, the album's all black cover was a sign of mourning for Scott.
