AC/DC classic added to Australia's National Registry Of Recorded Sound

An AC/DC classic is one of ten songs which have been selected for inclusion in Australia's National Registry Of Recorded Sound.

The Sydney Morning Herald reports AC/DC’s "It's A Long Way To The Top (If You Want To Rock And Roll)" will be included in the National Registry, which honors recordings with cultural, historic and aesthetic significance.

From 250,000 sound recordings held in the National Film and Sound Archive, only 64 have made it on to the register since it began in 2007.

Written by Angus Young, Malcolm Young and Bon Scott, "It's A Long Way To The Top (If You Want To Rock And Roll)" first appeared on the band’s 1975 album, “T.N.T.” A slightly shorter version of the song is also the first track on the international version of “High Voltage,” released in May 1976.
