            • Chart Watch Extra: For Those About To Download We Salute You
              By Paul Grein | Chart Watch 15 hours ago

              AC/DC storms the digital charts this week in the wake of the band's belated decision to join the digital revolution. Thirteen songs by the Aussie hard rock band enter the 200-deep Hot Digital Songs chart. (In addition, nine sold enough copies to make the Hot Digital Rock Songs chart but not the all-genre survey.) Nine of the band's albums enter the 200-deep Top Digital Albums chart.

              The results confirm what most of us already knew. The band's most popular album is 1980's Back In Black, which was the band's first album with new lead singer Brian Johnson. (He replaced "Bon" Scott, who died of alcohol abuse on Feb. 19, 1980.) Back In Black was AC/DC's first album to reach the top 10 on The Billboard 200. It spawned the band's first two top 40 hits on the Hot 100: "You Shook Me All Night Long" and "Back In Black." The album was voted into the Grammy Hall of Fame this year, a rarity for a hard rock album.
              Back In Black sold 15K digital copies this week. Six songs from the album made one or both of the aforementioned digital charts: "Back In Black" (68K), "You Shook Me All Night Long" (64K), "Hells Bells" (39K), "Shoot To Thrill" (28K), "Rock And Roll Ain't Noise Pollution" (9K) and "Have A Drink On Me" (8K).

              Still, many fans favor the band's early work, when Scott was still out front. Eleven of the 22 songs that made one or both of the digital charts this week feature Scott. (The other 11 feature Johnson.)

              1979's Highway To Hell was AC/DC's last album with Scott (not counting from-the-vaults releases). It was the band's first album to crack the top half of The Billboard 200 (it wound up reaching #17). It also spawned the band's first Hot 100 single, "Highway To Hell." Highway To Hell sold 5K digital copies this week. Three songs from the album made one or both of the aforementioned digital charts: "Highway To Hell" (50K), "Girls Got Rhythm" (9K) and "If You Want Blood (You've Got It)" (6K).

              Here's the other Scott material that was most downloaded this week. From the 1975-1976 sessions that became the album '74 Jailbreak: "Jailbreak" (7K). From 1976's Dirty Deeds Done Dirt Cheap: "Dirty Deeds Done Dirt Cheap" (37K), "Big Balls" (12K) and "Ride On" (5K). From 1976's High Voltage: "T.N.T." (40K) and "It's A Long Way To The Top (If You Wanna Rock 'N' Roll)" (26K). From 1977's Let There Be Rock: "Whole Lotta Rosie" (10K) and "Let There Be Rock" (1977).

              Five songs featuring Johnson on lead vocals (in addition to those from Back In Black) made one or both of the digital charts this week. From 1981's For Those About To Rock We Salute You: "For Those About To Rock We Salute You" (31K). From 1986's Who Made Who: "Who Made Who" (20K). From 1990's The Razors Edge: "Thunderstruck" (85K) and "Moneytalks" (19K). From 2008's Black Ice: "Rock N Roll Train" (6K).

              ("Moneytalks" reached #23 on the Hot 100 in February 1991, making it the band's highest-charting hit to date. Brothers Angus and Malcolm Young, who co-founded the band, wrote the song.)

              AC/DC sold 67K albums this week, the vast majority of them digitally. The band's other most popular digital albums, after Back In Black and Highway To Hell, were the new Live At River Plate (4K), High Voltage (first released in 1976, 3K), Dirty Deeds Done Dirt Cheap (first released in 1976, 2K), Live (1992, 2K), Iron Man 2 (2010, 2K), Let There Be Rock (1977, 2K) and The Razor's Edge (1990, 2K).

                      AC/DC's iTunes Debut Sells 48,000 Digital Albums, 696,000 Songs

                      November 29, 2012 By Keith Caulfield

                      One of the longest hold-outs from iTunes, AC/DC, finally reached the digital retailer last week.

                      The iconic rock band's entire catalog, along with two iTunes-exclusive box sets, became available on Monday, Nov. 19. In the week ending Nov. 25, the band's 25 albums moved 48,000 downloads while its songs shifted 696,000 in the U.S. according to Nielsen SoundScan.

                      Its biggest selling album, digitally speaking, was the band's classic "Back in Black," with 15,000 -- more than 10,000 ahead of its second-biggest title, "Highway to Hell" (a little under 5,000). Coming in third for the week was the brand new "Live at River Plate" (4,000), followed by "High Voltage" (just under 3,000) and "Dirty Deeds Done Dirt Cheap" (2,000).

                      In terms of song downloads, "Thunderstruck" led the way for AC/DC last week, selling 85,000. It debuts at No. 16 on Digital Songs and No. 1 on Hard Rock Digital Songs. On the latter tally -- viewable on billboard.biz -- the entire top 12 positions are owned by AC/DC tunes. The band's second biggest seller last week was "Back in Black" (68,000), followed by "You Shook Me All Night Long" (64,000), "Highway To Hell" (50,000) and "TNT" (40,000). There were 14 AC/DC songs that sold at least 10,000 last week.

                      Unlike the Beatles' arrival on iTunes in 2010 -- which was heralded with great fanfare and a TV marketing campaign -- AC/DC's entrance to iTunes seemingly dropped out of the sky without hype. Even though there weren't TV commercials touting the iTunes debut (as there was for the Beatles), one could hear the song "Back in Black" in at least two different TV commercials over the busy Thanksgiving shopping weekend. It soundtracked spots for the video game "Call of Duty: Black Ops II" as well as Black Friday ads for Walmart.

                      To compare, when the Beatles catalog arrived, it sold a combined 119,000 digital albums and 1.42 million songs.

                      Of course, comparing anything to the Beatles is difficult, since the band exists in its own realm of superstardom. That week, the Fab Four's best selling digital album was "Abbey Road" (16,000), followed by its stereo box set with 13,000. The Beatles' biggest song download that week was "Let It Be" (63,000), followed by "Here Comes the Sun" (55,000), "In My Life" (45,000), "Hey Jude" (38,000) and "Come Together" (38,000).

                      For a perhaps better side-by-side comparison, we turn to another former hard-rock holdout from iTunes: Led Zeppelin. The week its music bowed in the store way back in 2007, its combined albums moved 47,000 (with 33,000 of that for its then-new "Mothership" greatest hits album) while its songs shifted 300,000.

                      Following "Mothership," Led Zep's second-largest selling album that week was the iTunes-exclusive box "The Complete Led Zeppelin," with 5,000 sold. In third place was "Led Zeppelin IV" with 2,000.

                      As for Led Zeppelin's biggest song downloads that week, unsurprisingly, the iconic "Stairway to Heaven" was its best-seller, with 31,000. At Nos. 2-5 were "Kashmir" (21,000), "Over the Hills and Far Away" (16,000), "Black Dog" (15,000) and "Immigrant Song" (14,000).

                      Led Zeppelin bowed in the iTunes Store almost exactly five years ago, when download sales weren't as potent as they are today. Thus, seeing AC/DC start with a much larger volume isn't that shocking. (Year to date download album sales stand at 103.46 million -- 39% of the overall market. For the full year of 2007, downloads amounted to 50 million -- or 10% of the market.)

                                • Paul Grein's Chart Watch for the 12/29 Billboard charts:

                                  Led Zeppelin this week becomes just the third hard rock/heavy metal band to reach the 25 million mark in U.S. album sales since 1991, when Nielsen SoundScan began tracking sales for Billboard.

                                  The band follows Metallica (53,618,000) and AC/DC (31,901,000).

                                                • Well, unless it's a error in the Australian catalog album chart, apparently finally AC/DC's "Back in Black" got its accreditation...
                                                  A 12xPlatinum for 840k copies shipped. It's the only AC/DC album I have (1 copy each in vinyl and CD format).
                                                  Someone can confirm this?

                                                  • I guess it could be true. Nice to see it properly certified in Australia, if correct.

                                                    To be honest (I hope I don't sound like I want to diminish their success), I still struggle to understand how they really sold 4.5 million albums in their homeland by 1995 (and I think more 5 million by 2002), as Billboard once stated. And the fact that Back In Black has apparently shipped 840,000 copies there, leans towards my doubts.
