It's hard to say how to correctly write AC⚡DC band as text without a lightning symbol. Apperently the usual correct way is AC/DC but, of course, a lot of people text it as "ACDC", or "AC DC" as a result. In AC⚡DC the ⚡ lighting bolt sign probably stands for the loud sound of lightning thunder clap. They even have a song called "Thunderstruck" with a memorable chant "Thunder".
