AC/DC DVD Tops Billboard Music Video Charts

AC/DC's "Plug Me In", a two-disc DVD set of more than five hours of concert footage and interviews, has sold 35,000 copies in the United States in its first week of release to debut at position No. 1 on Billboard's Top Music Video chart. The compilation contains over five hours of live and television performances, many of them rare and previously unavailable until now. A limited edition of the set includes a third disc featuring 21 additional performances, along with reproductions of authentic AC/DC memorabilia.

Disc one is devoted to the band's early years with singer Bon Scott, covering the period between 1975 and 1979. Among the highlights are the band's first U.K. television appearance in July of 1976, the first public performance of "Highway to Hell" on Dutch television in 1979 and four songs from one of Scott's final shows before his death in early 1980.

Disc two covers the era with Brian Johnson on the mic, stretching from 1980 to the present. Highlights include a rare Japanese TV appearance from February of 1981, concerts from the '80s, '90s, and 21st century and a 2003 performance of "Rock Me Baby" with THE ROLLING STONES.

According to The Pulse of Radio, AC/DC is scheduled to begin recording its first all-new album since 2000's "Stiff Upper Lip" at some point soon, although exact dates remain a mystery.
