AC/DC have been celebrating their career-defining album Back In Black with the release of unseen documentary footage of the story from the iconic record.
Slowly teasing fans with footage, the documentary focusses on the production and behind the scenes of the creation of ‘You Shook Me All Night Long.’ Angus Young dives into the riffs of the track whilst Brian Johnson talks about the lyrics and meaning behind them.
“I’d written the words and I went in to sing it,” he says. “The boys weren’t in, and I was singing, ‘She was a fast machine, she kept her motor clean, she was the best damn woman that I ever seen.’ And Mutt [Lange, producer] said, ‘Brian, there’s too many words in it.’”
Recently, AC/DC have been relatively quiet on socials, but the band have been dropping content to promote the 40th Anniversary of the Back In Black album. You can check out the documentary series now and stay tuned for more episodes.
Fans will also be able to get their hands on fresh merch to celebrate the anniversary, from t-shirts, hoodies, caps, blankets and more. Click here to check it out.
