Awesome song, awesome video!

I love AC/DC but about that Metallica comment I think in the 80's Metallica is the best (In my opinion of course!) After that the band pretty much used AC/DC as an influence and and made simpler, more direct hard rock.

The movie may have been a box office throwaway [to some] but this song and the soundtrack itself, must've been good if it's still here today! Rock on!

The early guitar riff is obviously based on final riff of The Who's "Baba O'Reilly," but I don't know if it's merely homage or has more significance.

Old Pink, the guy's name is JIM BREUER, not Brewer

The song is about man inventing things that ultimately take over people.

Video games are programmed by people yet make people addicted and lose their money.
Bank accounts hold your money yet you make a high grade at school and you lose more money in tax.
- Luke, Manchester, England
When taken in context of the movie, the song is clearly about a man talking to an attacking machine. Machines are made by men, but in the movie, the machines are killing men. It's basically along the lines of "Why would you do this to me? I MADE YOU!" Kind of like Frankenstein's monster, I suppose.

I still dont see what this song is about, My opinion is that it asks the question who made who? Did God make man? or did man make god to explain that that he could not explain

Quite a POWERFUL song... it just transmit such an amount of energy, damn perfect to start the day :)
- Andrés, Montevideo, Uruguay
This is one of their best.
Angus just rocks out, and that quick rhythm trick he uses really drives this song irresistibly onward.
Since Brian screams as always, it's hard to say if he really stands out, but whatever he says sounds so awesome.
If anyone has ever seen the Jim Brewer piece in which he portrays (complete with full band!) what it would sound like if AC/DC did the Hokie Pokie.
It is hilarious.

So underrated and underapreciated. AC/DC deserved more respect back then.
- austin, Bristow, VA
This is the only AC/DC song I've ever heard that has even vaguely thought-provoking lyrics. Rock on, guys!
- Bess, San Diego, CA
yeah...good theory but y the hell would Acca Dacca sing about robots..? tis weird...
- selina, perth, Australia
I think it's saying did humans make robots or did robots make humans,hecnce who made who,in the video they take Angus' measurments.When i say they i mean the robots.But i could be wrong
- Levi Foe, St. Petersburg, FL
I love this song...but I don't really get it...like What's Next To The Moon...any1 no?
