Today marks the 30th anniversary of the death of AC/DC singer Bon Scott, who passed away in 1980 following a night of hard, hard drinking. To pay tribute to the Dirty Deeds Done Dirt Cheap singer’s legacy — and all the music history his resilient Rock and Roll Hall of Fame bandmates achieved following his death — this weekend’s Rock List is dedicated to AC/DC songs. Tell us your favorite songs by the Aussie hard rockers, and on Monday we’ll count up the votes to reveal our Readers’ Rock List.
