AC/DC’s New Album “Power Up” Tops the Billboard 200 Chart

Major news for Classic Rock royalty as AC/DC’s Power Up (read our review here) has debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 albums chart, giving the legendary rock band its third chart-topping album in their career. The new studio effort was released via Columbia Records on Nov. 13 and starts with 117,000 equivalent album units earned in the U.S. in the week ending Nov. 19, according to Nielsen Music. AC/DC previously hit No. 1 with 2008’s Black Ice and 1981’s For Those About to Rock (We Salute You). Power Up is AC/DC’s 26th charting album, and 10th top 10. Power Up has registered the largest sales week of 2020 for a rock album. The last rock set to log a larger sales frame was Tool’sFear Inoculum (248,000; chart dated Sept. 14, 2019). Power Up’s sales were assisted by some retailer exclusive editions, vinyl variants, and an elaborate limited-edition deluxe CD package that retails for $49. (The tracklist across all versions of the album — CD, vinyl, and digital download — is identical.)

The limited-edition deluxe CD package is a pricey affair because the CD is housed in a box that features a red light-up AC/DC logo on its cover and has a built-in speaker that plays the opening bars of the album’s lead single, “Shot in the Dark.” (The company that made this deluxe set also made the similarly priced limited edition CD package for Tool’s Fear Inoculum, which was released with a 4-inch HD screen, exclusive video footage and a speaker.)

AC/DC has shared the unboxing video to their long-awaited comeback album PWR/UP! Stream the single “Shot In The Dark” and pre-order the album now at the links below.
