It was on this day (December 1st, 1975) when AC/DC released their 2nd album, ‘T.N.T.‘ in Australia only.  Recorded at Alberts Studios in Sydney, Australia, and produced by Harry Vanda and George Young.  The album would eventually become a defining moment for AC/DC as T.N.T. gave AC/DC their identity.  What was that?  No Frills, nothing fancy or fake, just plain out, in your face, take it or leave it rock and roll.  AC/DC‘s motto has always been:  This is who we are as a band, this is what we play, take it or leave it, we don’t give a #@$%!  The T.N.T. album definitely makes that statement.  Let’s take a look at the album:

  1. It’s A Long Way To The Top (If You Wanna Rock ‘N’ Roll)
  2. The Rock ‘N’ Roll Singer
