Powerage is the fifth studio album by Australian hard rock band AC/DC. It was the band's fourth studio album released internationally and the fifth to be released in Australia. It was the first AC/DC album to feature Cliff Williams on bass, and it was also the first AC/DC album not to have a title track (aside from the Australia-only High Voltage album). Powerage was re-released in 2003 as part of the AC/DC Remasters series.

This album marks the debut of bassist Cliff Williams, who keeps the rhythm nailed down as Angus tears through complex new songs like Riff Raff. This would be the last album with Harry Vanda and older brother George Young on board as producers and their last before exploding into global superstardom. Bon Scott, Angus Young and Malcolm Young hit on a new level of songwriting maturation with 1978’s Powerage. You can hear it straight from the first track, Rock ’n’ Roll Damnation, which throws in some handclaps and back-up singers to flesh out their tale of eternal punishment, while What’s Next to the Moon pushes the band out of their lyrical comfort zone with its mythic storytelling. This album marks the debut of bassist Cliff Williams, who keeps the rhythm nailed down as Angus tears through complex new songs like Riff Raff.
That Powerage is the only AC/DC album title not to feature in a chorus of one of their songs speaks about one of the record’s key virtues: subtlety. Granted, there’s little that’s subtle about the throttling riffs on Riff Raff or the crunching Kicked In The Teeth, but elsewhere – on the beautifully lachrymose Down Payment Blues, the playful What’s Next To The Moon, the plaintive, in-the-pocket Gone Shootin’ – AC/DC display a discipline, control and restrained power that only the most mature and confident of players. Emphatically, it’s late frontman Bon Scott’s album. After Powerage, AC/DC would get louder, slicker and bigger, but they would never again display this much heart, soul and humanity. When Bon sang about going down to Sin City to get into god knows what, Smashing Pumpkin Billy Corgan told us, you knew – absolutely without a doubt – that he knew what he was talking about.

Powerage was a first in the sense that it debuted bassist Cliff Williams, but it really is more of a final curtain to the band's early years. As such, it's perhaps the most overlooked of their '70s records, also because, frankly, it is the most uneven of them. Not that it's a bad record - far from it, actually.
