Iron Man 2 is a soundtrack album by Australian hard rock band AC/DC, released in April 2010 via Columbia Records.

Iron Man 2 is the soundtrack to the film of the same name. The album was announced on 26 January and is seen as being used in the same sense as Who Made Who was for Stephen King's Maximum Overdrive, not a greatest hits collection but a compilation album which contains both hits and lesser known tracks.  There are no new songs on this soundtrack album.

Co-Chairman of Columbia Records, Steve Barnett said "Jon Favreau's vision and passion for AC/DC's music blend seamlessly into this incredible film; the music really underscores the high energy and excitement of the film." The album features an almost half-and-half mix of songs from both the Bon Scott and Brian Johnson eras of AC/DC. 

The album features fifteen tracks from ten different albums, ranging from 1975 to 2008, all of whom were remixed by Mike Fraser for possible film inclusion. Only two songs ("Shoot to Thrill" and "Highway to Hell") were used completely in the film, while one song ("Back in Black") was actually featured in the previous film. "Thunderstruck", "War Machine", and "The Razors Edge" were used in trailers and commercials for the film. 

On 26 January 2010, a music video was released featuring "Shoot to Thrill" with exclusive footage from the film Iron Man 2. The live concert footage used in the video was filmed in late 2009 in Buenos Aires, later featured in the concert film Live at River Plate. Upon the album's release, another music video featuring footage of the Buenos Aires concert and Iron Man 2 footage was released, this time featuring live audio from the "Highway to Hell" performance.

Iron Man 2 debuted at No. 1 in the UK Albums Chart upon its release, giving AC/DC their third No. 1 album in the U.K. after Back in Black and Black Ice.  The album reached #2 on the Australian ARIA Albums Chart.

The album debuted at No. 4 in the U.S. on the Billboard 200, selling 76,000 copies in its first week of release. It became the band's eighth top 10 set in the U.S.  It reached No. 1 on Mainstream Rock Albums and stayed No. 1 for five consecutive weeks. 

The album has sold over 3 million copies.

This is a Double Album 2LP Records set on 180 Gram Vinyl housed in a Gatefold Sleeve with Printed Inner Sleeves, pressed in Europe.
