    Steven Hyden

    Between 1976 and this week, AC/DC has released 15 studio albums. I own 13 of them. I suspect I'll have purchased my 14th AC/DC album, the new Rock or Bust, by the time this article is published. How do I explain this? Why didn't I...

    The "Meh-he-co" chants drowned out the AC/DC blaring from the speakers at Arena Pernambuco as the kickoff of El Tri's match against Croatia drew closer. When the 15-by-25-foot LCD screens showed the starting lineups, the Mexican fans h...
