acdccid.jpgLegendary hard rockers AC/DC have topped Billboard‘s year-end “Hard Rock Albums” chart.

The 2015 chart of top-selling hard rock and metal albums is based on sales data as compiled by Nielsen Music from a universe of retailers that represents more than 90% of the U.S. music retail market.

The sample includes not only music stores and the music departments at electronics and department stores, but also direct-to-consumer transactions and Internet sales (both physical albums via Internet, and ones bought via digital downloads). A limited array of verifiable sales from concert venues is also tabulated. All sales charts use the entire Nielsen Music panel.
