Blow Up Your Video is the eleventh studio album (tenth international) by Australian hard rock band AC/DC, released in January 1988 via Albert Productions.

Arguably no album released during the Brian Johnson era arrived with smaller fanfare than AC/DC‘s Blow Up Your Video, their first new studio album of all-new material in three years, turned out to be their most successful album since 1981's For Those About To Rock.

AC/DC’s prior two studio albums, 1983’s Flick Of The Switch and ’85’s Fly On The Wall, had both paled in comparison to prior mega-triumphs creatively speaking. In fact, were it not for the ‘Who Made Who’ soundtrack-cum-greatest hits to raise the band’s commercial profile, their career might have been in some real danger.

There were many problems contributing to AC/DC’s fall from grace, but perhaps the most obvious of these addressed by Blow Up Your Video was bringing back an actual producer to work with the band in the studio. And who better to simultaneously put the boys at ease and whip their asses into gear than the Vanda & Young team that had shepherded their first five albums to fruition?

It worked, for the most part.

The driving album opener, "Heatseeker", turned out to be a surprising Top Ten single in the U.K., while the anthemic "That's The Way I Want To Rock n' Roll" and “Kissin’ Dynamite” and “This Means War” proved to be other highlights. But otherwise Blow Up Your Video is somewhat unfocused – strong, hard song but lacking the usual killer edge.

Simply put, all of these songs at least sounded like the AC/DC of old. The final verdict was, of course, rendered by the fans, who snapped up as many copies of Blow Up Your Video as they had its two predecessors combined. Perhaps more than any other accomplishment, though, Blow Up Your Video helped the Young brothers begin righting their ship, thus setting the stage for the resounding return to form that was 1990’s highlight-packed The Razor’s Edge album.

Check out the tracks: “Heatseeker”; “That’s The Way I Wanna Rock ‘n’ Roll” and “Kissin' Dynamite”.
