AC/DC Releases Original ‘Highway to Hell’ Cover That U.S. Label Rejected

AC/DC recently shared the Highway to Hell cover that didn’t quite make it.

Approaching the 40th anniversary of their hit 1979 album, the band have been sharing content on their online platforms. They posted the album cover on their Instagram that was rejected by Atlantic Records.

The caption to the post says the artwork was “‘shot down in flames’ by the American record company,” referencing a song on the second side of the original LP.
