CSPC: AC/DC Popularity Analysis

AC/DC

BIGGEST TRACKS – AC/DC

The list of most successful songs is compiled in album equivalent sales generated by each of them. It includes the song’s own physical singles sales with a 0,3 weighting, its download and streaming sales, and with appropriate weighting too, plus its share among sales of all albums on which it is featured.

The surprise here is not at the top, but rather near the bottom of the list. Moneytalks is AC/DC‘s only ever top 30 hit in the US (#23), but barely makes this list of their biggest tracks!
