On the night of February 18, 1980, AC/DC vocalist, Bon Scott, went out drinking with a friend. They checked out a couple of bands and passed out in a car. His friend decided to let him “sleep it off.” He never woke up. He was found unresponsive the next morning.

Five months later, AC/DC released “Back in Black” and it went on to become one of the best selling albums in history. “Hells Bells" and “Back in Black” were written as a tribute to Bon Scott.
