Johnson: "It's a little bit about reality TV. A TV show called Boarding House was being done in Hawaii. And the lady who was producing it asked if I wanted to play on the grand finale of the show. I said that I wasn't interested. She came up to me while I was having a conversation at this community gathering, which was a fundraiser for Sunset Elementary School. And then she interrupted me again and said that I didn't understand, that this was for national TV and that it would be a great opportunity for me. So that's where that line, 'You interrupt me from a friendly conversation to tell me how great it's all going to be' comes from. That verse is about how sometimes, even when you're trying not to pay attention to it, television and the entertainment industry and all that still sneaks into your world. It's obviously in jest and just a funny song. But it's about that feeling you get sometimes when you flip through the channels and there isn't one thing on TV that's not sensationalized or just completely about some of the lower parts of humanity. And you just start wondering where all the good people are."
Claude from Blandon, PaMy favorite line is "station to station desensitizing the nation....." so very true.
Stef from Chicago, IlI like how he says that the "boob tube" controls you in the verse, "I'm in the mood to obey". It's really true. People just sit around and watch tv actually listening to everything it's saying. It's like everyone out there has an agenda and nothing is done for the good of people anymore. It's all for self-gain. Where DID all those good people go? XD
Will from Auburn, InWe need some good people on tv, or maybe some good musicians on music channels
Justin from Georgetown, Inthis isn't normally my type of music. but the lyrics ring out so true i can't help but humm it.
Angus Young created the distinctive opening guitar part for "Thuderstruck" by playing with all the strings taped up, except the B. He learned the studio trick from his older brother George Young, who was the rhythm guitarist for The Easybeats.
