AC/DC for Christmas Number 1 campaign launched to mark band's 50th anniversary / Planet Rock

"AC/DC fans in the UK have started a new campaign to get the rock legends to Number 1 this Christmas.

Back in 2013, a campaign was launched on the AC/DC We Salute You Facebook page to get ‘Highway to Hell’ to Number 1 to mark AC/DC’s 40th anniversary as a band.

‘Highway to Hell’ sold just over 43,000 copies and ultimately charted at Number 4, earning AC/DC their first ever Top 10 single in the UK. Their previous highest entry was Number 12 in 1988 with ‘Heatseeker.’

Exactly a decade on, the people behind the AC/DC We Salute You page have announced they’re doing a fresh campaign to see if they can get AC/DC three places higher to mark their 50th anniversary.

Organisers are yet to announce what song will feature in the campaign, however ‘Thunderstruck’, ‘Touch Too Much’, ‘Back in Black’, ‘Mistress for Christmas’ and ‘Hells Bells’ are among the fan suggestions."
