AC/DC 's Number 1 Song & Top 20 List Revealed, The Metal Voice Fan Poll, Read Results Here

Updated: Feb 11, 2023

Around 7000 fan votes were cast in 3 rounds and these were the results.

AC/DC fans picked 'A Touch Too Much' as their all time favorite song.

'A Touch Too Much' comes off the bands 6th album 'Highway to Hell which was released on 27 July 1979. It was the last album featuring lead singer Bon Scott, who would die early the following year on 19 February 1980.

"Touch Too Much" had been first recorded in July 1977, with a radically different arrangement and lyrics from its Highway to Hell incarnation. The final version was performed by Scott and AC/DC on the BBC music show Top of the Pops a few days before the singer's death in 1980.

The band had earlier recorded another song with vastly different words and music entitled "Touch Too Much", but the song was never released. That track would eventually see the light of day in 1997 when it was included in Volts, part of the band's Bonfire box set.

Prior to joining AC/DC on the Rock or Bust World Tour, Axl Rose said this was his favourite AC/DC song. The song was first performed live on 22 May 2016 in Prague

Released as a single charted UK 29, West Germany 13 in 1980
