The first megahits with Bon Scott
The first singer, Dave Evans, was in the band for only a year. In 1974 he was replaced by Bon Scott, who led the era of hits like "T.N.T.," "Whole Lotta Rosie," and "Highway to Hell." Scott died in 1980 in the back seat of a car after a night of heavy drinking. His successor was Brian Johnson, still called the "new guy" even though he's been on board for over 35 years.
