I have AC/DC 1990 album taken from forth coming album "Razors Edge" that has Thunderstruck on one side and Fire Your Guns on other with photos made into vinyl have not been able to find one like it anywhere. Great album! The Razors Edge is a pretty good album. It didn't go to the extreme commercially and critically, but it has some good songs. The best song from the album is "Thunderstruck, " which is considered one of the best AC/DC songs of all time. The Razors Edge" is probably the second best. Bon Scott at his best. Bon Scott was so much better than Brian Johnson. Don't get me wrong Brain's voice kicks ass, but he is nowhere near the energy and charisma of Bon Scott. Dirty Deeds's title track is one of their best songs. Also I just want to point out that 4 of the top 5 on this list are from the Bon Scott era. Who doesn't love this album? - UFasten8Me.

The drawbacks of life on the road, and a sense that he's flirting with disaster, are once again mentioned in Scott's lyrics, but this time the tone is almost fully defiant and celebratory: "Hey momma, look at me!, I'm on my way to the promised land.

Dick Barnatt/RedfernsBon Scott (left) and Angus Young in London, 1976. Bon Scott signed on to AC/DC as the frontman when their previous frontman refused to go on stage. It was through Scott’s checkered past and rebellious attitude that the band cemented itself as a raucous, crude rock group. Scott, who had been rejected from the army because he was socially maladjusted, brought that attitude into AC/DC. But the stress of constant touring and performing began to wear on Scott. Prone to alcoholism, Scott drank heavily throughout this period.
