AC/DC is one of the most enduring and successful rock bands of all time. With a career that's lasted 40 years, they've sold more than 200 million albums worldwide.

In fact, their 1980 album Back In Black has sold an estimated 50 million units worldwide, making it the second-highest-selling album by any artist - behind Michael Jackson's Thriller - and the highest-selling album by any band.

One of their biggest singles is Highway To Hell, which is part of the The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame's List of Songs That Shaped Rock and Roll.

It's at the top of the page, with AC/DC's original singer - the late Bon Scott.

Give it a listen and then check out this video below of a Flamenco band covering the aforementioned Highway To Hell.
