Top 10 AC/DC songs featuring Brian Johnson

In honor of Sarasota resident and super nice guy Brian Johnson celebrating his 63rd birthday this week (Oct.5), here's my highly subjective list of the greatest AC/DC songs featuring him on lead vocals.

Back when the hard rock band's original lead vocalist Bon Scott died in 1980 skeptics predicted AC/DC's demise.

Johnson smacked those doubters down by penning awesomely testosterone-driven lyrics — namely on his "Back in Black" debut — and delivering those delightful double entendres with winking machismo and devilish glee.
