AC/DC and John Farnham were two of 10 inductees for The Age Music Victoria Hall of Fame for 2015.
To mark the 10th anniversary of the Hall of Fame, 10 inductees were added to acknowledge the contribution they have made to the music industry in the state of Victoria.
While AC/DC was formed in Sydney, Melbourne claimed custody of the band after the group relocated to the city around 1976. Besides the ‘It’s a Long Way To The Top’ video was filmed in Swanston Street and Melbourne now has an AC/DC Lane.
While AC/DC haven’t performed their classic without Bon Scott, the song has become a staple of the John Farnham setlist who sang it at his induction on Friday night.
