24. Back in Black, AC/DC (1980)
We can easily throw 1979’s Highway to Hell in this spot. But, when it comes to a true top-to-bottom, hard-rock listening experience, this is the AC/DC choice. The band was trying to move on from the death of famed frontman Bon Scott. And, this unabashed tribute showed that AC/DC had what it took to succeed with new, raspy-voiced singer Brian Johnson in tow. AC/DC ushered in the 1980s with a more accessible, but no less powerful, sound. The album houses such classics as “Hells Bells,” “You Shook Me All Night Long,” “Shoot to Thrill” and the legendary title cut.
