Joe Bonomo moves a three-chord essay at the strength of early life, the sturdiness of rock & roll fandom, and the transformative homes of reminiscence. Why does Highway To Hell subject to someone past non-ironic teenagers?  Blending interviews, research, and memoir with a fan's standpoint, Highway To Hell dramatizes and celebrates a undying album that one critic stated makes "disaster sound just like the most sensible enjoyable within the world."
