Generic hard rock almost, but they do have a sound.
A lot of hard rock tends to sound a slight bit more glam metal-ish, so I think of AC/DC as being maybe slightly off-center in relation to the most typical hard rock sound.

When I think generic hard rock, I guess I think of something like Doro. Millions of bands sound like that.

No. I don't consider them to be generic rock, as they clearly have a signature sound that is uniquely their own.

Are the band kind of generic with their own music? I'd yes, the only time they really changed their sound was the switch from Bon Scott to Brian Johnson.

All the Brian Johnson albums are basically 100% the same album with a different cover (scam of the century!), but they sure sound very AC/DC.

I don't know many vocalists that sound like Brian Johnson. So yes, it is unique.

I don't think being the trailblazers of a sound that quickly became generic makes them inherently generic. That said, I don't like them. Can't listen to more than like 3 AC/DC songs in a row without feeling deja vu.

I think it's impossible to avoid deja vu if you listen to more than 1.
