LOS ANGELES (Billboard) - If the Rolling Stones, U2 and Aerosmith can make the Hot Dance Club Play chart, why not AC/DC?

The Anglo-Australian rockers made their first appearance on the dance list this week with "Rock N Roll Train," which rolled onto the survey at No. 48.

"Rock N Roll Train" also ended the seven-week reign of Metallica's "The Day That Never Comes" on Billboard's airplay-based Mainstream Rock chart. The album from which it comes, former chart-topper "Black Ice," is No. 6 on the Billboard 200.
