AC/DC Stay On Track

TITLE: “Rock N’ Roll Train”
WEB DEBUT: Aug. 28, 2008

ONE-LISTEN VERDICT: All I can say is that if you put “Rock N’ Roll Train” on for a friend, and told him that it was actually a recently unearthed old b-side from the Australian hard-rock outfit, that person would probably believe you. “Train” has chunky chords, a howl-along chorus, and lyrics about hot chicks; it even sounds a little more messy than current rock productions, perhaps to give the whole enterprise that “back in the good old days” feel.

WHERE TO HEAR IT: It seems to be streaming from the band’s official site, but if that’s as balky for you as it was for me, there’s always YouTube.

    Not bad. But it makes me long for the days when I was such a naif that I couldn’t tell Bon and Brian apart. Also, I think Bon’s more memorable tracks concerned large, not hot chicks.

    i must once again salute AC/DC for being the most consistent band in the history of rock and roll.

    I will never, ever hear this song.

    I will be first in line when they come to town.

    Makes me hearken back to the day where my mind was filled with 20-sided dice and how I might possibly see a boob (all without understanding how one might limit the chances of the other).

    If this makes ME nostalgic, how must Mutt Lange feel?

    OMFG this is so good I want to cry. Angus and Malcolm are still the best 1-2 guitar punch in rock music.

  6. Lax Danja House

    I am afraid I will never get this band. At least my undying hatred of ‘Back In Black’ has… died.

  7. Anthony Miccio

    Yes, I would totally believe this was a mid-80′s b-side.

    I was going to bitch about promising a double CD and then releasing a song named “Rock’n'Roll Train,” but the album evidently also features “She Liked Rock’n'Roll,” “Rock’n'Roll Dream” and “Rocking All The Way” so maybe it’s a concept thing. About rocking.
