For Those About to Rock (We Salute You) by AC/DC

So I’ve never been an ardent fan of anthemic songs but when it comes from the gut of AC/DC, that changes everything! These guys have beat the hell out of every possible inversion of G chords, D chords and A chords planted against a 4/4 meter known to man and done it with absolute mastery for nearly forty years. For Those About to Rock We salute You! Sounds a bit corny doesn’t it? Perhaps, but…it exemplifies the freedom of rock and roll. That feeling you get from nothing else. If you listen to this and don’t tap your foot, wish your hair was long so you could look cool as you imagine yourself headbanging on stage just like Angus with that cherry Gibson SG and just plain smile, you are missing out on the pure unadulterated pleasure of good old fashioned kick-ass rock and roll! And if that is the case…shame on you!
