AC/DC : Rock 'n' Roll Damnation
On May 4, 1978, AC/DC released Powerage, the final studio album before Highway To Hell would finally become a presence on the American charts.The timing couldn't have been better as other hard rock bands were wither losing their way ( Kiss solo albums) or losing momentum due to drug abuse ( Aerosmith). Meanwhile the Young brothers were never short of heavy riffs and Bon Scott could make any lyric sound dangerous.
The album peaked at US#133 on the Billboard 200. The next studio album would best that 116 spots.
