Dirty Deeds Done Dirt Cheap

2 Apr, 1981

The band releases the single, Dirty Deeds Done Dirt Cheap, from their album with the same name. Young gets the song title from the 1962 animated cartoon series, Beanie and Cecil, specifically from the cartoon’s main villain, Dishonest John, who would carry around a business card that said, ‘Dirty Deeds Done Dirt Cheap. Holidays, Sundays, and Special Rates’.
