Oh, AC/DC, when I saw that this song was coming up next on the track list, I was all set to write about how I remember going to high school dances and this song would come on and my friends and I would start head-banging to it crazy hard and then I would wake up the next morning and I couldn’t move my neck because I was a dumb kid who thought it was a good idea to thrash my head up and down for hours on end. And I was going to write about how I was way too old to be doing idiotic stuff like that anymore because I’m an overweight middle-aged man who has zero limberness to his body and who would immediately regret even the hint of head-banging. And then I press Play. And I heard that amazing guitar. And my mind was all like “Oh shiiit! Ohhh shiiiiiiit! This song is awwwwwesoooooome!” And before I knew what was happening, I was once again a dumb fifteen-year-old in a dark high school gym completely in thrall to this most amazing song. My face contorted like I was sucking the sourest lemon in the world and my leg was pounding the floor in time to the thunder of guns.
And now here I sit, sweaty, with a headache and a numb pain that’s radiating all the way down my back. Probably not good, AC/DC. And while I think it was totally worth it, my wife will not agree when I complain about my aching hulk for the next week. This song is too dangerous to listen to very often, AC/DC, but thanks for reminding me you made one of the best goddamn songs ever made.
