Fleetwood Mac & AC/DC Make Their Way Back to the Top of the Charts

While there is plenty of great new music these days, you really can’t compare anything to the nostalgia of past decades. Music fans all over the world seem to agree as many older artists are appearing at the top of the charts once again, decades after their songs were first released. Two of these artists are Fleetwood Mac and AC/DC.

Fleetwood Mac is one of those iconic bands that generally always remains on some kind of Billboard chart. However, since a lot of their music is decades old, you wouldn’t think to see any of the songs on the most-streamed lists. Their song “Dreams” recently hit No. 10 on the Rock Streaming Songs chart after going back to No. 1 in 2020 after going viral on social media. Of course, their song “Landslide” remains their most recognizable and most successful song.

Meanwhile, AC/DC hit a new chart peak about 45 years after its release. “You Shook Me All Night Long” climbed up to No. 3 on the Hard Rock Streaming Songs chart after sitting at No. 4 previously. The song is one of their biggest hits along with “Back in Black,” which previously sat at the No. 3 spot as well. “Thunderstruck” and “Highway to Hell” have both hit No. 1. As of now, AC/DC has four songs on the chart and proves that they aren’t going anywhere.
