"High Voltage" is a song by Australian hard rock band AC/DC. It is the eighth track of their Australian album T.N.T, released in December 1975 (see 1975 in music), and was written by Angus Young, Malcolm Young, and Bon Scott.

"High Voltage" shares a name with the band's first Australian and international albums, and is also the ninth and final track on the international version, released in May 1976 (see 1976 in music).

A little known fact about this song is that the chorus uses the chords A, C, D, and C in progression, after a suggestion from Angus and Malcolm Young's brother, George Young, who also produced the High Voltage album.

In the song's lyrics, the singer answers questions from an unnamed second party, pertaining to the singer's physical appearance, interests, activities, and general existence. The singer's answer to every question is "high voltage rock 'n' roll."

"High Voltage" is one of AC/DC's most popular songs, and has been included on four of the band's five official live albums: If You Want Blood You've Got It (sung by Bon Scott, 1978), Live: 2 CD Collector's Edition (sung by Scott's replacement Brian Johnson, 1992), Live from the Atlantic Studios (Scott, 1977), and Let There Be Rock: The Movie (Scott, 1979), with the last two being released in 1997 as part of the Bonfire box set.
