Synopsis:

The premier rock biographer and author of When Giants Walked the Earth Mick Wall writes the compelling story of the enduring rock band that has sold 200 million albums

Megan Fox wears the band's T-shirts. Keith Richards says Malcolm Young is a better guitarist than he is. Like the Rolling Stones, AC/DC survived every musical trend and industry change to remain both at the top of their game and the charts.

From their start in Australia in 1973―with two Scottish brothers, Angus and Malcolm Young, at the core―AC/DC launched an assault on punk in both England and the U.S., in a wild rebel return to real rock roots that's still chart-topping and selling albums today: over 71 million in the U.S. alone. AC/DC ruthlessly shed band members, managers, producers, and anyone who stood in the way of world domination. Like the Rolling Stones, they've survived every musical trend and industry change to remain both at the top of their game and the top of the charts.

In AC/DC: Hell Ain't a Bad Place to Be, world-renowned rock writer Mick Wall unearths previously unheard stories from all the key players in the AC/DC story. At the center is a tight–knit clan who became and stayed musically successful because they took no hell from outsiders. Wall also uncovers the truth behind the mysterious death of lead singer Bon Scott in 1980, and writes with unflinching insight into the dizzying highs and abysmal, self-inflicted lows of that band's career with Scott's replacement Brian Johnson.

The Young brothers and AC/DC have survived drugs, death, divorce and the damnation of critics to become one of the best-known and most listened-to rock bands in the world. This is their story: rock n' roll.
