AC/DC Play at an Australian High School in 1976

Above, you can witness some very early, and very engaging, footage of AC/DC.

The clip was filmed in 1976, after the release of their first major album, High Voltage, at little ol' St. Albans High School in their native Australia.

In the video, you'll hear/see “It’s a Long Way to the Top (If You Wanna Rock ‘n’ Roll).” Although the film is a bit grainy and the sound a little muddy, you can still make out the schoolboy-uniform clad Angus Young’s frantic strut and Bon Scott’s gritty wail.

As always, enjoy!

From 1998 to 2014, he was one third of Mister Neutron, an instrumental rock act that toured the universe and elsewhere and released three albums via Austin-based Deep Eddy Records. These days he performs with several New York City-area bands and can often be spotted with one of his many, many, many B-bender-equipped guitars. In past lives he was GW’s managing editor and online managing editor – and he still can’t believe he got to write the liner notes for the latest SRV box set.
