If the Ramones sang with mordent, ironic wit, and the Sex Pistols a sneering, politicized nihilism, ACiDC celebrated a bawdy mix of shagging, boozing, brawling, and fleeing. All three bands were led by social misfits (to put it politely) who hoped rock 'n' roll would offer an alternative to menial jobs and petty crime (in the cases of Bon Scott, Dee Dee Ramone, and Steve Jones).

Lyrically, Bon wasn't afraid to go too far (an aside to his subject of the third track entreats her to "sit on thiS"), but the conjoined rhythm work from Malcolm and Angus, their classic SG-meets-Gretsch guitar sounds and the pop-rock class of Vanda and Young's arrangement skills-so clever you hardly notice them-make even this one rocket through .
