Outliers can be removed when calculating a mean average to dampen the effects of ratings outside the normal distribution. This figure is provided as the trimmed mean. A high standard deviation can be legitimate, but can sometimes indicate 'gaming' is occurring. Consider a simplified example* of an item receiving ratings of 100, 50, & 0. The mean average rating would be 50. However, ratings of 55, 50 & 45 could also result in the same average. The second average might be more trusted because there is more consensus around a particular rating (a lower deviation).
(*In practice, some artists can have several thousand ratings)

Double entendres galore out of this band hailing from Australia. Humorous and hard-rocking songs from the Bon Scott era should not be missed.
Essential albums include Let There Be Rock, Powerage, and High Voltage.
Essential songs include Riff Raff, Let There Be Rock, TNT, Dirty Deeds and Whole Lotta Rosie but you’ll miss great deep cuts like Gone Shootin’, Down Payment Blues, Rocker, Hell Ain’t a Bad Place to Be, Bad Boy Boogie, and Kicked in the Teeth.
Early albums are raw and underproduced giving them an immediacy lacking on releases after 1978. Arguably, after 1980 AC/DC fails to live up to standards and there is little to invest in; save your money.
These ratings are absolutely ridiculous for one of the most influential bands of all time I mean AC/DC has been a major influence on later bands and they practically invented the power chord. Malcom and Angus young have come up with some of the greatest riffs of all time and together with either Bon Scott or Brian Johnson as well as Phil Rudd and Cliff Williams they have made some of the best albums of the genre. Not many bands recover from the death of the singer especially one as great as Bon Scott but they did the impossible and brought Brian Johnson in and came back with the greatest come back in music history Back In Black, currently the 4th highest selling album in history. People often criticize them for all of their songs sounding the same but if you actually listen to the songs you’ll see that they don’t all sound the same. Rock n Roll never had to be complicated so what’s wrong with simple songs? I understand that Rock and metal isn’t for everyone but AC/DC is amongst the best of the genre
Influential Aussie band who knew how to write riffs for the ages. The Young Brothers were a potent combination with either lead singer's voice.
Pretty narrow and not particularly complex, but they do what they do really, really well.
If you know the word ‘bogan’ then you will also know that this music is the soundtrack to a bogan’s life. In fact, you will not be remembered as a true bogan in perpetuity unless an AckerDacker song plays at your wedding and your funeral. Bogans are generally not expansive in their tastes. They like their meat and 2 veg, stay loyal to single brew of beer, are divided into two tribes of Holden or Ford worshipers, think the mullet is always in fashion, and like to damage their brains listening to simple, heavy, limited chord ranging music. Unlike Rednecks though they are often loveable larrikins, with an underrated sense of humour and have an uncanny superpower of being able to see through bullshit. This is the Aussie reflection of enjoying life’s simple pleasures with your middle index finger raised nonchalantly.
AC/DC are too sandy same for my liking but their Bon Scott era stuff is as good as hard rock gets and Brian Johnson’s era never needed to go any further than Back in Black which is an out-and-out classic. Everything thereafter is just an attempt to hold on to that high point, or musical zeitgeist, but failing miserably.
Ride On is so very cool and chilled and is a nice departure from the fist shaking stuff, and Jailbreak is an early encapsulation of their Aussie, tight-jeaned strut.
They're fun and energetic, and they have some pretty iconic songs. Creativity is not their biggest asset though.
My rating is for the Bon Scott years, the early albums are far better and more imaginative. Brian Johnson is fine but Bon had something subversive about him.
AC/DC have never pretended to be anything that they aren't. They've always been a solid party-rock band. All their albums - except Back in Black - are hits-plus-filler, but for bluesy hard dance-rock, they got the goods.
Best band of all time. They changed the way music would be made forever and have influenced some of the biggest bands ever like Metallica, Van Halen, Judas Priest, Iron Maiden, etc. Eddie Van Halen and the guys from Metallica have said themselves that AC/DC are the best, and if you think all their songs sound the same listen to It’s a Long Way To The Top, Hell’s Bells and For Those About to Rock and tell me they sound the same.
AC/DC took rock'n'roll, with the same chords and the same mojo, and somehow made it their own. Its incredible how 5 guys can come together and play such exciting music and make such a sonic impact.
AC/DC is about the rhythm and the power, you can always tap your feet along, and dance to an AC/DC song. Malcolm powered the riffs and Angus added the spice, a well used yet somehow magical lead guitar ability which always shoves you right in the face. Bass and Drums in AC/DC has always been simple, but that's the way it was meant to be. Brian and Bon both took this wall of sound and belted out their vocals by nearly busting their balls, just trying and keep up with the madness behind them.
AC/DC was never meant to be innovative, it was just meant to be rock'n'roll, and they absolutely are the best at it. No-one could take the same chords and make such an impact. Highway to Hell is 3 chords, and how many millions of kids have tried to play that?
