One week in 1980, Angus and Malcolm Young were running through ideas with frontman Bon Scott in a London rehearsal studio. The next Tuesday, Scott drank himself to death. Instead of retreating, the Youngs finished the songs with a new singer, Brian Johnson. "Malcolm asked me if this riff he had was too funky," says Angus. "And I said, 'Well, if you're gonna discard it, give it to me!' "
