RhoDeo 1433 Goldy Rhox 174

Hello, today the 174rd post of GoldyRhox, classic pop rock in the darklight is an Australian Hard rock band formed in 1973 by brothers Angus and Malcolm Young, and released two albums in Australia before releasing their first international effort, High Voltage with vocalist Bon Scott, bassist Mark Evans and drummer Phil Rudd. In 1980, Bon Scott died less than a year after the release of the successful Highway to Hell, and was replaced by British singer Brian Johnson, with whom AC/DC released their best selling album, today's mystery . Their latest album to date, Black Ice, was released in 2008, selling over 8 million copies worldwide.

Since 1974 they have released 16 studio albums (14 available worldwide and 2 released only in Australia), 2 soundtrack albums, 4 live albums, 11 video albums, and 2 box set albums. Although a large number of AC/DC singles have been released, the band always refused to release any greatest-hits type packages;[1] Who Made Who (which served as the soundtrack to Stephen King's Maximum Overdrive), Iron Man 2, and the band's various live recordings are as close as the group have come to such a compilation. In 39 years of their career, the band sold over 200 million albums worldwide, roughly 71 million in the US. Today's mystery album alone sold 22 million (50 million worldwide), making it the second highest-selling album of all time. The band was inducted into Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame in 2003 as a performer.

Most of the albums i 'll post made many millions for the music industry and a lot of what i intend to post still gets repackaged and remastered decades later, squeezing the last drop of profit out of bands that for the most part have ceased to exist long ago, although sometimes they get lured out of the mothballs to do a big bucks gig or tour. Now i'm not as naive to post this kinda music for all to see and have deleted, these will be a black box posts, i'm sorry for those on limited bandwidth but for most of you a gamble will get you a quality rip don't like it, deleting is just 2 clicks...That said i will try to accommodate somewhat and produce some cryptic info on the artist and or album.

Today's mystery album was the seventh Australian and sixth internationally released studio album by the band, released on 25 July 1980. The album was the first recorded without former lead singer Bon Scott, who died on 19 February at the age of 33, and was dedicated to him. The band considered disbanding following his death, but they ultimately decided to continue, with encouragement from Scott's parents, and shortly thereafter hired Brian Johnson as their new lead singer and lyricist.

When Brian Johnson became lead singer, the band decided to finish the songwriting they had started under Scott, with the Young brothers composing the music and Johnson writing the lyrics. It contains some of their biggest hits, including "Hells Bells", "Shoot to Thrill", "You Shook Me All Night Long" and "Back in Black". The final song on the album, "Rock and Roll Ain't Noise Pollution", reached no. 15 on the UK Singles Chart, the highest placing of any song on the album.

As of June 2011, the album has sold an estimated 50 million copies worldwide, making it tied for second highest-selling album of all time, the highest-selling album by a band (together with Pink Floyd's The Dark Side of the Moon), the best-selling hard rock album of all-time, and the best-selling album ever released by an Australian musical act. Today's mystery album is the 77th album in the ranking "The 500 Greatest Albums of All Time" of the American magazine Rolling Stone. VH1 also placed the title track at #2 on its list of the 100 Greatest Hard Rock Songs..
