There are big albums, there are monster albums and then there’s AC/DC’s Back In Black, which is like Godzilla on HGH.

Praised by critics and fans, no album collection is complete without it. Each track is a winner, not a filler track in sight. For some (like this writer), it kicked off a love affair with not just AC/DC but hard rock, too.

In the 37 years since its release, everything has been said about Back In Black, so in honor of its anniversary, we’re going to let the numbers do the talking.
