Exclusive! The 3 Variations of Black Ice Artwork




AC/DC's Black Ice will be released approximately October 20th across the globe and now AC/DC News is pleased to show you the three different collectible covers fans can choose from when purchasing the CD.

Right away, you'll notice you have the choice of yellow, red, or white AC/DC logos but a closer study of each design reveals they're all somewhat different with the exception of Angus appearing at the top center inside a circle.

So which one do you like best? Or will you purchase all three to complete the collection?


In other newsworthy items, Undercover notes that Australian fans are so excited about AC/DC's upcoming release,"Black Ice," that they've put five albums from the band's back catalog on the record charts this week. Three from Bon Scott's era and two from Brian Johnson's, interestingly enough.

"On this week’s ARIA chart, AC/DC are at no. 47 with ‘TNT’, no. 61 with ‘Highway To Hell’, no. 62 with ‘Dirty Deeds Done Cheap’, no. 74 with ‘Who Made Who’ and no. 92 with ‘The Razor’s Edge’."


Lastly, for years, many fans have wanted "Mutt" Lange to produce another album for AC/DC. After all, it was Lange who produced the monster hits Highway To Hell, Back In Black, and For Those About To Rock with the lads from down under.

Indeed, Mutt was often rumored to be working with the band on what would eventually turn out to be "Black Ice." Of course, AC/DC eventually chose Brendan O'Brien for the job but now Rock Radio is reporting that Mutt Lange will be working with Nickleback on their sixth album.

Nickelback! Are you freakin' kidding me?!

Keep rockin, Jon

This smacks of greedy marketing, but they realize they're catering to people who think anything AC/DC touch turns to gold. In any case, I'll be buying all three. :p

Got to go with Red! But in honesty any new album color would rock!

I don't care which artwork I get as long as the CD kicks ass. I thought Mutt Lange was producing his estranged wife's next album, ha ha.

I prefer the Red/Black Art it just gives off that "AC/DC" feel if ya know what I mean.

What a shitty idea!
They don't need to force us to buy the CD 3 times to be n°1 when they release it, they're not f***ing Michael Jackson.

I prefer the red cover, but don't need all three!

I love how the Bon albums are rockin up the charts, maybe some younger fans, too!
