Song of the Day: AC/DC – “Shake a Leg”

On this day in 1980, AC/DC released Back In Black, their first album with Brian Johnson on vocals after the death of Bon Scott. The album turned out to be so much more than just the start of a new era for the band as it went on to sell a whopping 50 million copies, the second-most in history behind only Michael Jackson’s Thriller. The album features four of the band’s most famous songs in “Hells Bells,” “You Shook Me All Night Long,” “Shoot to Thrill” and the title track, but the fact that the other songs on the album stood out as well helps give this album such universal appeal. This song is one of those and is a great example of the simple yet hard-hitting AC/DC formula.
