"You Shook Me All Night Long" is one of AC/DC's signature songs from their most successful album, "Back in Black". The song also reappeared on their later album "Who Made Who". It is one of the band's top 40 singles, reaching number 35 in the North American pop singles chart in 1980. The single was re-released internationally in 1986 following the release of the album "Who Made Who".

"You Shook Me All Night Long" placed at No. 10 on VH1's list of "The 100 Greatest Songs of the 80s". In the song, the lead singer Brian Johnson relates the story of a night with a beautiful woman.

There are two versions to the music video. The first version, directed by Eric Dionysius and Eric Mistler [ [http://www.mvdbase.com/video.php?id=593 mvdbase.com - AC/DC - "You shook me (all night long) [version 1: 1980" ] ] , is similar to the other "Back in Black" videos ("Back in Black", "Hells Bells", "What Do You Do for Your Money Honey", "Rock and Roll Ain't Noise Pollution", and "Let Me Put My Love Into You") and is only available on the special "Back in Black, The Videos" which could be obtained by purchasing a recent "Back in Black" album. In the second version, directed by David Mallet [ [http://www.mvdbase.com/video.php?id=611 mvdbase.com - AC/DC - "You shook me (all night long) [version 2: 1986" ] ] and released six years after the song's original release, Angus and Malcolm Young follow Brian around, with Angus in his signature schoolboy outfit. "You Shook Me All Night Long" was also the second song to be played by AC/DC on Saturday Night Live in 2000, following their performance of "Stiff Upper Lip."

There are at least two live versions of this song that have been officially released. One of them is on the band's album "Live", the other is on the soundtrack to the Howard Stern movie "Private Parts."

"You Shook Me All Night Long" is perhaps one of the most controversial film clips AC/DC ever released. The film casts Corinne Russell, a former Hill's Angel and Page 3 Girl, along with other leather clad women with zippers at the groin region of their suits; however, a softer, censored alternative version exists without these shots.

The re-released single in 1986 contains the B-side(s): B1. "She's Got Balls" (Live, Bondi Lifesave '77); B2. "You Shook Me All Night Long" (Live '83 - 12" maxi-single only).

In 2008, the song was acclaimed as the most requested song at wedding receptions [http://www.discjockeys.com/top_200.php] , with Justin Timberlake's Sexy Back in second, and Love Shack by the B52s in third.
