Highway To Hell


A Facebook campaign aims to get AC/DC's 1979 hit 'Highway To Hell' back in to the top ten for Christmas.

Peak position: 10
First charted: 15th December 2013

The drive to get AC/DC to Christmas No. 1 has been started to celebrate the 40th anniversary of the band.

Despite a 40 year history, the Aussie rockers have never had a top ten hit in the UK.

'Highway To Hell' is one of their best known hits but when it was first released over 30 years ago, it only charted at No. 40.

Can AC/DC follow in the footsteps of Rage Against The Machine and score a Christmas No. 1 all thanks to Facebook?

Sarasota Memorial Hospital, Childrens Therapy Room, the SARS Benefit concert, Make a Wish Foundation, Austin Hatcher Pediatric Cancer Foundation, add that to the numerous personal charities they are involved in. Besides who will remember Sam Bailly in 40 years, when we will still be singing and playing air guitar to Highway to Hell.. happy Yule dude!!"

  4. "For COPEY, so you are aware members of AC/DC regularly donate to charity. Because it's not splashed all over the media and an easy way to be No 1, shows integrity. Perhaps the Sarasota Memorial Hospitals childrens therapy ward, the SARS foundation, Make a Wish Foundation, Austin Hatcher Pediatric Cancer Foundation... etc etc, might disagree with you."
