Power Up (sometimes shortened as PWR/UP and stylised as PWRϟUP) is the seventeenth studio album by Australian rock band AC/DC released in Australia and the sixteenth to be released internationally. Released on 13 November 2020, Power Up marks the return of vocalist Brian Johnson, drummer Phil Rudd and bassist Cliff Williams, all of whom left AC/DC before, during, or after the supporting tour for their previous album Rock or Bust (2014). This is also the band's first album since the death of co-founder and rhythm guitarist Malcolm Young in 2017 and serves as a tribute to him, according to his brother Angus. To celebrate this we highlight AC/DC's only performance on Toppop with 'Girls Got Rhythm'.
AC/DC (stylised as ACϟDC) are an Australian rock band formed in Sydney in 1973 by Scottish-born brothers Malcolm and Angus Young. Although their music has been variously described as hard rock, blues rock, and heavy metal, the band themselves call it simply "rock and roll".
inIn this legendary Toppop performance from 1979 you can see the band in the line-up with Malcolm and Angus Young, singer Bon Scott, drummer Phil Rudd, and bassist Cliff Williams, who has appeared on every AC/DC album since 1978's Powerage. In February 1980, Bon Scott died of acute alcohol poisoning after a night of heavy drinking.
