Frontman Brian Johnson enjoys racing vintage race cars in America. He told Motor Trend magazine that the Young brothers wrote this track because they know he is a "car freak." When the interviewer asked Johnson what the song is about, he replied: "What's it about? It's about [starts singing] 'Wheels, running through my head, going through the red...' What do you think, my darling, it's about motorcars!"
Zero from Nowhere, NjUpdate: I listened to it last night again (there are 15 tracks, my mistake), and I might even go as far to say it's BETTER than Back in Black! I really mean that. I like how they were able to try new sounds while still sounding like AC/DC. Great job guys!
Zero from Nowhere, NjI don't know how everyone else is gonna react to this, but I really think Black Ice is their best album since Back In Black, in that every song is good, which is an even bigger accomplishment for Black Ice because there's 14 songs on it as opposed to BIB's 10 songs. Though I don't think it has songs that are as epic or will be as greatly remembered as Hell's Bells, Back in Black YSMANL, or Shoot to Thrill; I still think it's great! What does everyone else think?
"Won't Get Fooled Again" by The Who is about a revolution, but it doesn't have a happy ending, since in the end the new regime becomes just like the old one. Pete Townshend thought that whoever was in power was destined to become corrupt.
Eddie Vedder often changes the words when he sings "Yellow Ledbetter." The basic story is about a guy whose brother dies in the first Gulf War. Apparently, bad news in the army is given in yellow envelopes.
