AC/DC Honored For 'Best Australian Single'

AC/DC have been chosen the winners of a contest to find the best Australian single, according to The Age.

The long-running hard rockers were way out in front with their anthem "Highway to Hell" in a Virgin Radio poll in honor of Australia Day.

INXS were in second place with "Need You Tonight" and MEN AT WORK third with "Down Under".

"We thought it would be good to mark Australia Day by celebrating their greatest sounds — hopefully it will take their mind off the rugby," said Virgin Radio's Ben Jones.

The top 10 was as follows:

01. AC/DC – "Highway to Hell"
02. INXS - "Need You Tonight"
03. MEN AT WORK - "Down Under"
04. ROLF HARRIS - "Jake The Peg"
05. MIDNIGHT OIL - "Beds Are Burning"
06. JET - "Are You Gonna Be My Girl"
07. POWDERFINGER - "My Happiness"
09. SILVERCHAIR - "Tomorrow"
10. THE VINES - "Highly Evolved"
