Classic AC/DC Album Inducted into the Grammy Hall of Fame

Classic AC/DC Album Inducted into the Grammy Hall of Fame -

AC/DC classic 1980 album 'Back in Black' will be inducted into the Grammy Hall of Fame this year, joining more the 900 albums which make up the Grammy Hall's collection.

Recording Academy President/CEO Neil Portnow says:

"It's especially important to note that these entries continue the tradition of including a wide variety of recordings that have inspired and influenced both fans and music makers for generations. Memorable for being both culturally and historically significant, we are proud to add them to our growing catalogue of outstanding recordings that have become a part of our musical, social and cultural history."

AC/DC have been nominated for seven Grammys over the years, but have only ever won 'Best Hard Rock Performance' for 'War Machine' in 2010.

The addition of 'Back in Black' to the Grammy Hall of Fame marks one of the very few hard rock albums to be inducted.

'Back in Black' is one of 27 new records chosen this year, entering alongside such major acts as Paul McCartney & Wings, Elton John, Billy Joel, Bob Dylan, Frank Sinatra, and Whitney Houston.
