What Do You Do For Money Honey

Album: Back In Black (1980)

Songfacts®:

  • This song finds Brian Johnson taunting a woman who avoids work by hooking up with rich men. The Back in Black track was largely ignored by the band live after the mid-1980s although it was revived during the 2001 tour.
  • The song featured in the trailer for Kristen Wiig and Zach Galifianakis's 2015 movie Masterminds. Though AC/DC has been reluctant to license its music for advertising, their tunes have featured in several movies, dating back to 1986 with the release of Who Made Who, the soundtrack to the Stephen King film Maximum Overdrive. In 2010 the Iron Man 2 soundtrack comprised 15 classic AC/DC tracks, although only two of their songs actually appeared in the movie.
