Music and protests have always gone hand in hand. Cranking up a good protest song helps draw attention to the cause and can become a rallying cry. AC/DC's 'Highway To Hell' isn't your typical protest song, but it was just used by protestors in Utah who oppose a proposed freeway.
It has just been revealed that AC/DC singer Brian Johnson will be collaborating with Sting on the Police frontman's first new album in 10 years, 'The Last Ship.' The music featured in 'The Last Ship' will also be used for an upcoming musical of the same name.
AC/DC have thrown their support behind a campaign to erect a new statue of the late Bon Scott in the singer's hometown of Kirriemuir, Scotland. Though AC/DC are known for their Australian pride, Scott actually moved to the continent from Scotland in his youth.
Who doesn't love a good fist-pumping metal anthem? Anthrax have been enjoying rocking out to AC/DC's 'T.N.T.' while on tour, promoting their recently released version from the new 'Anthems' covers EP. But Wednesday (March 27) in Los Angeles, the veteran metallers offered a warm welcome to special guest Slash for their performance.
Dave Evans may not be as well known as Bon Scott or Brian Johnson, but AC/DC's original vocalist definitely holds a key role in the history of the band and he's still proud of his time with the group. Evans will join the world's biggest AC/DC tribute show this weekend, playing with Long Way to the Top, while celebrating his original group's 40th anniversary.
In a new interview, AC/DC bassist Cliff Williams offers an update on new AC/DC material. While the band has not hit the studio yet, Williams says the group's legendary guitarists Angus and Malcolm Young are currently crafting new songs for the band's next album.
