Song 26: “Shot Down In Flames,” AC/DC.
Okay, so Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds aren’t the only great band to come out of Australia. I don’t care who you are: if you’ve been drunk in a bar somewhere in the world at midnight, and you can tell me you honestly hate AC/DC, then you’ve never been drunk in a bar at midnight. This is the ultimate sing-along party rock band. I see it first hand every weekend at work: pour a trail of Bacardi 151 on the bar, light it up, put on “Highway To Hell,” and watch EVERYBODY bang their head.
And, of course, there is absolutely no question as to who was better, Bon Scott or Brian Johnson. I won’t insult your taste by spelling it out.
