Pretty....
Spoiler for Hiden:
terrible.

AC/DC should not be covered.  One should only listen to AC/DC's versions of AC/DC.

so, now how do you feel ATB?  other than the big head mode and the pointy elbows that is.  Kick her out of bed for eating crackers?

First off, if she were in my bed, I wouldn't have to kick her out because my wife would take care of that for me, likely in a way that she would never sing again.

2nd, my kids have eaten crackers in my bed and that is beyond annoying.  Even if you do your best to get all the crumbs out you still wind up with getting poked by the left overs.


So two strikes right there.

Add to that, that I like my AC/DC- one of the least showy, let's just get up and rock bands of all time- pure.


So, I'm out. Happy hunting!  icon_wink

This is a common fallacy brought up by haters of good rock and roll.

I'm as much for good rock and roll as the next guy, but AC/DC has always struck me as the ultimate "frat boy" rock band.  Not my thing at all, but YMMV.

they're pretty good, but I'd argue against the statement that they're not showy or even least showy:

Seriously. Have you heard Back in Black? If you put it into the context of when it came out and how many amazing jams are on that album, I'm not sure how anyone can come away unimpressed with it.

This thread has really gone in an unexpected direction.

Here, here she is doing "call me maybe". Maybe that will be less offensive to your hardcore rock sensibilities.

Nothing about how she plays or the resulting sound of the song fits with the song, you know absent music.

AC/DC had this pretty perfect. The sound fed into the words you were singing/hearing and amplified the feeling that resulted.

If it isn't right with my eyes closed nothing I can see when I open them really changes that much.

Her seven nation army cover is pretty good.

I just don't like her presentation. She obviously is talented on the geetar and her voice is adequate...but the whole push up bra over saturated lighting. Meh.
