ACDC Angus Young


24 Sep, 1990

The band releases the single, Thunderstruck, from their album, The Razors Edge. Angus Young:

It started off from a little trick that I had on guitar. I played it to Mal and he said, ‘Oh I’ve got a good rhythm idea that will sit well in the back.’ We built the song up from that. We fiddled about with it for a few months before everything fell into place.Lyrically, it was really just a case of finding a good title, something along the lines of Powerage or Highway to Hell We came up with this thunder thing and it seemed to have a good ring to it. AC/DC = Power. That’s the basic idea.
