Address ACDC Lane ACDC La, Melbourne VIC 3004, Australia

The pride of Australia, AC/DC even had its own street, like the Ramones in New York. ACDC Lane, one of the most rock and roll streets in the world!

On October 1, 2004, 31 years after the band’s debut, the city of Melbourne renamed Corporation Lane to ACDC Lane. The slash separating AC and DC disappeared due to a local law prohibiting this character in the name of streets and avenues.

Nevertheless, a lightning bolt soon appeared on the sign to do full justice to the band’s name as street art, much of it in its glory, multiplied. Located in the business district, ACDC Lane inspired the city’s mayor to say these words:  “Like the song says, there’s a highway to hell but this alley, it leads to heaven.”
