  • Andrew from Kilcoy, AustraliaThis was the last song with drummer Chris Slade.
  • Caitlin from Colmesneil, TxThis is probably my fav AC/DC song. Too bad they've never performed it live, though. It'd kick ass in concert.
  • Carlota from Ankara, TurkeyI love this song! It is very high-energy and it makes you want to run a mile and KICK BUTT while doing it. Definitely one of the best rock songs ever!
  • Selina from Perth, AustraliaGod, how good is that riff?! Makes ya wanna shout and rock out! :P :)
  • Alex from Miami, FlThis song was issued as a single in a cassette along with a live version of Back In Black. The movie The Last Action Hero failed due to bad timing. It came out a week after Jurassic Park, the biggest movie phenomenon of that year.
  • Alex from Miami, FlThis song is the first in the soundtrack an it has a good selection of rocker. It was released July 8 1993 - Columbia Records (CD)
