AC/DC: 'Plug Me In' DVD Box Set Certified Quintuple-Platinum In U.S.

"Plug Me In" — the ultimate career-spanning DVD box set of live performances, interviews and more from AC/DC, the world's most electrifying rock and roll band — has been certified five-times-platinum by the RIAA (Recording Industry Association of America). Released on Tuesday, October 16, "Plug Me In" debuted at #1 on the Billboard Top Music Video chart and #1 on the SoundScan Top DVD Music Videos chart.

"Plug Me In" — the first AC/DC release since the band came to Columbia Records earlier this year — debuted at #1 in 12 countries around the world, including the U.S., the UK, Australia, Canada, France, Spain, Sweden, Belgium, Denmark, Ireland, Finland, and New Zealand.

The compilation contains over five hours of live and television performances, many of them rare and previously unavailable until now. A limited edition of the set includes a third disc featuring 21 additional performances, along with reproductions of authentic AC/DC memorabilia.

Disc one is devoted to the band's early years with singer Bon Scott, covering the period between 1975 and 1979. Among the highlights are the band's first U.K. television appearance in July of 1976, the first public performance of "Highway to Hell" on Dutch television in 1979 and four songs from one of Scott's final shows before his death in early 1980.

Disc two covers the era with Brian Johnson on the mic, stretching from 1980 to the present. Highlights include a rare Japanese TV appearance from February of 1981, concerts from the '80s, '90s, and 21st century and a 2003 performance of "Rock Me Baby" with THE ROLLING STONES.
