  • By 1979 the AC/DC group had already released several studio albums and conducted frequent and exhausting tours in their support. The reason for the title of the song (followed by the entire album) was an interview in which the journalist asked the group about their tour life. Guitarist Angus Young described it as "road to hell". On the cover of the album, A. Young is depicted with the horns and tail of the devil, which together with the name gave rise to rumors about the band's satanic inclinations. The group denied these rumors. The song was written jointly by the brothers Angus and Malcolm Yang and singer Bon Scott. Malcolm Young came up with a basic guitar riff, which became one of the most recognizable in rock music.

  • AC/DC performs in the first version of the music video "Highway to Hell" from the album "Highway to Hell" recorded for Atlantic Records. The music video features the band performing the song on a darkened stage. Angus Young opens with guitar before Bon Scott joins him with singing.
