AC/DC led all artists by winning three 2011 Ultimate Classic Rock Awards, completely dominating any category related to video content: ‘Best Reissue or Archival Release,’ ‘Best DVD’ and ‘Best Commercial.’

The Australian rockers walked all over the ‘Best Reissue’ voting with the long-awaited re-release of their 1979 Bon Scott-fronted ‘Let There Be Rock’ concert film. They received over 56% of the vote, beating runners-up the Rolling Stones (and their expanded ‘Some Girls’ CD) by more than a three-to-one ratio.

A more recent AC/DC concert, this time from 2009 and featuring Scott’s long-standing replacement Brian Johnson, ‘Live at River Plate,’ beat out Ozzy Osbourne‘s ‘God Bless Ozzy Osbourne’ documentary by earning almost 32% of the votes in the ‘Best DVD’ category.

Ozzy provided even stiffer competition for Angus Young and company in the ‘Best Commercial’ category, with AC/DC’s ‘Call of Duty’ commercial (featuring ‘Shoot to Thrill’ from 1980’s ‘Back in Black’) narrowly edging out Osbourne’s ‘Crazy Train’ Honda Pilot commercial in a 38% to 36% vote.

All told, over 230,000 votes were cast in the 2011 Ultimate Classic Rock Awards. You can see the results of the voting in the three categories AC/DC won below, and stay tuned today to see who else won in other polls.
