  • Zero from Nowhere, NjKinda sounds like "In My Time of Dying" by Zep, with the slide.
  • Aaraon from Dallas, TxI just love Johnna's voice at the end of this song. I love it when he sings low.
  • Nick from Cairns, AustraliaYeh i agree, weird for ac/dc to have slide guitar but still it sounds great overall and has a cool "country-ish" feel. I don't know it justs sounds like to me, especially the verse guitar riff but it feels more country in the intro :) anyway its a good song
