The story of one of the world's biggest rock bands is being told at a new exhibition at Glasgow's Kelvingrove Museum.
Around 450 items charting the history of AC/DC are going in display in the touring exhibition which is being staged outside Australia for the first time.
Exhibits include a leather jacket owned by late singer Bon Scott, a stage outfit for guitarist Angus Young and one of his custom-made guitars, as well as a cannon used by the band in their live shows.
AC/DC's bands roots are in Scotland, with founder members Angus and Malcolm Young born in Glasgow and former singer Bon Scott growing up in Kirriemuir. All moved to Australia as children, where they went on to form the band in the 1970s.
AC/DC went on to become one of the world's biggest rock acts, their 1981 album Back in Black becoming the second biggest selling album of all time.
Part of the exhibition focuses on their early childhood of the Young brothers in Scotland, as well as the family's emigration papers, and there is also a representation of the band playing Glasgow's Apollo music venue in 1978.
Despite the death of Bon Scott in 1980, the band have continued to build on the reputation he established and gone on to greater success with English-born vocalist Brian Johnson.
They sold out Glasgow's Hampden Stadium in 2009, their most recent full album Black Ice going to number one in the UK.
The touring exhibition has been put together by the Arts Centre Melbourne and Western Australian Museum, in association with the band and their management and record company.
Kelvingrove was the only UK venue who immediately agreed to take the exhibition.
Councillor George Redmond, chair of Glasgow Life, said: "We are delighted that the only European leg on the AC/DC exhibition world tour is at Kelvingrove Art Gallery and Museum.
Exhibition curator Tim Fisher, who saw the band in 1975 aged 16 in Canberra, said: "The exhibition has many photos, letters, hand-written lyrics, costumes, posters, instruments, videos, live footage, backstage passes and even a 'For Those About To Rock' cannon.
"It is one for the fans and we hope you enjoy it."
He added: "The Scottish connection with this exhibition is very important in a number of ways. All of its long term members, apart from drummer Phil Rudd, were born in England and Scotland and since 1976, all have spent the majority of their lives living and working internationally.
"AC/DC are the perfect combination of Caledonian aggression and Antipodean insouciance."
