The comparisons to AC/DC probably get thrown around much more than is really warranted: at times it seems that there is a never-ending string of bands labeled as yet more AC/DC-clones.

While there is a surfeit of bands that play in this style, often adding nothing original, I tend to enjoy most of them! Post any you can think of here; that is, the good, the bad, and the ugly.



I'll start with Sideburn:

Pretty sure we did this thread already. Not sure how to find it, though, since the slash in their name is not recognized by the search feature here.

Anyway, the most blatant of all these bands is '77.



Close your eyes and listen, and this is Bon Scott-era AC/DC.

And thanks to this thread, I just discovered Johnny Crash put out an album last month that has some originals and some out-of-left-field covers like Ghost Riders in the Sky and Personal Jesus.

Don't shoot me for this, but I have always thought Accept sounds a lot (not much the vocals, but the music) like AC/DC, one reason why I started listening to them in the first place.
