I have yet to click on the song, but I'm really expecting something different here. I am very excited to hear the progressive jazz fusion influence being incorporated into their new music! You really never know what to expect from AC/DC.

Look they're like Motorhead. Yeah the sound has stayed almost cartoonishly consistent over the years, but it's distinctive and no band has managed to peg it in quite the same way. Their last classic is years in the past but this album will probably deliver what most people are hoping to get from it.

I'm not sure if I like this version of "Highway to Hell" better than the second version of it, but maybe not as much as the third or fourth. I wonder when they're going to redo "TNT". That one hasn't seen some love since the 6th version a couple years back.

"Can you imagine being in a band where no one likes anything you do anymore and all you can do is try to relive your glory days 5 nights a week? Maybe they're cool with it, but it's enough to put someone on suicide watch."

Considering that their last album sold well over a million copies world wide it's probably fair to say that maybe a few people still like what they do.

Also, it's morbidly funny and more than a little sad how difficult it is for people to deal with the idea that maybe AC/DC actually still enjoys doing what they do. We should all be so lucky to do something for 40+ years and still enjoy it as much as AC/DC enjoys playing power chords. It might keep us all off suicide watch.

Unless like stated earlier, they just really enjoy making money. Either way, glad other people enjoy this garbage and that they can play their classics forever.

I still get agitated when they're on the radio though. I have to stop mid conversation with people like I got interrupted. Then I pretend like nothing's wrong and my palms sweat for 3-4 minutes while I try to ignore it.

Stating these about some harmless hard rock jams... Bruh. It is entertaining to read, but also it's quite sad.

Didn't mean to make anyone sad. If anyone takes what I said personally, I apologize.

I have seen bands in interviews seem kind of down when they're excited about new shit they made and people only want to hear the old shit. It's a common theme. Pretty sure it would upset me, especially that far into my career.

Sounds like they're enjoying the ride though! If they are, there's nothing better than that.

Music still sucks balls though.

That's...definitely an AC/DC song. Sounding very mid-period, which is encouraging, but let's be real - whatevet they put out next can't possibly be worse than Rock or Bust.

Hopefully they don't style the title like that though. Cringe.

It's a little sad the amount of people who love to shit on this band. Yes they're old, only in it for the money, haven't written an original tune in 40 years if ever (talking sctrictly the Brian Johnson led version here, original AC/DC with Bon Scott may have lacked diversity but they created that sound and like The Ramones ir was original and very distinct and creative for it's time). But these guys have been through some pretty rough shit this last decade with death and disease, let the old farts play their three tunes and make some money for their grandkids, they aren't hurting anybody, to be offended by that is sad. I haven't liked anything they've done in 20+ years but they'll always have a place in my heart for the Bon Scott + early Johnson years.

Plus a lot of older rock and roll fans who aren't the most hip or cultured or brightest (and sometimes suffering from diseases like Alzheimer's or dementia) get real joy out of these old bands putting out new music, it brings some happiness into their lives. I'm all about that, music isn't just for the hip and educated or enlightened.
