Re: OT: ACDC - explain why they are so great.

AC/DC worked long long and hard hard and toured toured their asses asses off off for a long long time and kept kept on on keeping keeping on on to earn earn what they have achieved. They started small and then kept going and got bigger and bigger and never looked back. No one handed AC/DC a thing. They are the Real McCoy. They earned their success. I would imagine that might be one reason Angus is not letting go no matter the recent... whatever one would call it...

I never really got them at the time although I saw them at the marquee in 76 and in 79 supporting The Who at Wembley.

However, a mate got me into them a few years ago and now I love them.

Favourite song - She Shook Me All Night Long.

AC/DC: simple basic rock n roll with catchy riffs, some yell-along slogans (preferably with the words "hard" "rock" and/or "balls" in it), just for the sheer unadulterated fun of it. Their best songs, simple as they might be, do have a groove to it (which is why comparing them with Status Quo - as I saw somewhere above - is grossly unjustified). I like them, in small doses, as I like Motorhead, which has/had the same basic directness. I can't take them very serious but then I don't think we're supposed to. Having said that, I once went to an AC/DC live concert, and thought the whole "Angus-lowering-his-pants-act" embarrassingly puerile, but the rest of the gig was alright.

the problem with a lot of todays young folk is they are not conditioned to trying to find great music, instead they listen to what they are drip fed from todays society

Give me a ****ing break!

The amount of fiction and generalisation going on here is ridiculously offensive.

The amount of generalisation and smugness going on in Bastion's posts is ridiculously offensive..
I'm the first to extoll the virtues of a great Rihanna song, or Calvin Harris jam.. or the Alabama Shakes..I listen to 'modern music', I was simply wondering if ACDC is a generational thing, or is there sonething timeless about thier simplicity.

Quo is WAY more versatile than AC/DC.

Really? I always thought it was rock for 10 year olds. The worst part of this is that I now I have "you're in the army now" (or whatever it's called) in my head. I think it's time to put up some Whola Lotta Rosie.

Oh dear, no, that didn't convince me at all. Rather terrible, apart from the last one which I found tolerable. But nowhere close to AC/DC.
But thanks for the effort. And thanks for not putting that terrible army now thing.

I think they found a perfect formula for rock n 'roll. Buying an album you know what to expect. In contrast it can also seem monotonous.
BUT, it's only rock n' roll.

AC/DC is no Bullshit, pure Rock and Roll.
No Glimmer
No Backup Singers

It's an abomination to my ears. Had a ticket to the first European show in Lisbon and was 75/25 whether to go or not. In the end I did, knew within 10 minutes it wasn't for me

Can't believe my all time favourite band has ended up this way

Luckily i managed to get refunds for London & Manchester

Well to my ears the band sounds MUCH younger and Angus seems to have fun!

Have you noticed he gone back to standard tuning for the Axl/dc tour? Methinks it's Brian "dead vocal chords" Johnson who demanded the band to tune down to E flat.
It's safe to say Brian dragged AC/DC down during the last few years (2008-2015) and I'm happy to see Angus has broken his chains... thumbs up

It's great that they've played Riff Raff, Rock 'n' Roll Damnation and If You Want Blood (You've Got It) recently.

I think Axl sounds surprisingly good on vocals and I would love to catch 'em live with the current line-up.

I just wish they'd play a few Guns N'Roses ballads, like Patience or Don't Cry to make the shows even more special.

Well the AC/DC train moves on to the next town while you're staying on the plaform crying. I pity you!

Angus wants to move on, Angus will move on (new album, new singer) and he addresses a "look at my bum buddy" salute to all his "fans" who disagree.
"Mate thx for giving me your money all these years but this is my band so you can bugger off!".

Andy now that you've given up on AC/DC you still got Airbourne for true rock'n roll! >grinning smiley<

Ha, there is no AC/DC train any more!

I'll see what Brian and Phil do next I guess. Because this scab DC circus act isn't for me

PS: I'd rather shit glass than listen to Airborne winking smiley

Just saw them do it in Werchter.
Fantastic. Angus is a true rock hero.
And Axl did a great job. Sympathetic and respectful to the Bon and Brian era's.

Between support act and ACDC they played during 30 minutes only Stones songs...
Halfway the second time JJF they kicked off.
Other songs were SFM, GS, SftD, MR, BS.

It would be interesting if Brian does not come back, to hear maybe an EP of 3-4 new songs with Axl, or some live stuff at least.
