6. AC/DC - 'Back In Black'
Before AC/DC released Back In Black they were supposed to be goners. Their lead singer Bon Scott had just drank himself to death and it was hard to imagine them carrying on with anybody else. Undaunted, the Australian band hired gravelly voiced Brian Johnson and headed down to the Bahamas to record a new disc. The result is one of the greatest hard rock albums of all time. They never came close to matching its success, but with "Hells Bells," "You Shook Me All Night Long," "Back In Black" and "Shoot To Thrill" they had enough classics to pack arenas for the next 50 years.
