AC/DC At Metlife, Wednesday, August 27th, 2015, Reviewed

By Iman Lababedi | August 27, 2015

With the exception of “You Shook Me All Night Long”, they don’t have a memorable tune to their name and all their lyrics are ephemera, the audience chant hooks but the hooks have no real meaning, so that frees the set up from expectation. Sure “Hells Bells”, “Back In Black” and a coupla others get an especially loud cheer, but really the set just goes from one great song to another to anothe

Wow, this has only two new albums, we’re used to six or more. The disaster here is AC/DC, 175K with zero streaming for a band this big (and an album this great) is a major disaster.

“Anarchy in the U.K.,” The Sex Pistols. In November of ’76, a sea change occurred in the U.K. music scene as Johnny Rotten introduced himself as an anti-Christ/anarchist. While Rotten was declaring his goal to destroy passersby, the multi-tracked guitar of Steve Jones roared in violent agreement with the sentiment.
