In fact almost everybody tells me they are hard rock.
There are hundreds of bands out there that are not universally considered to fall into one exact genre. I would probably consider AC/DC to be hard rock, but the line between heavy metal and hard rock is so blurred (and in all reality pointless) that I could completely understand someone calling it heavy metal. About the only people who really get in a fit over it are usually pretentious jerks who don't want the genre of music they listen to associated with a band they dislike.
