AC/DC - Thunderstruck

Thunderstruck by AC/DC Song Info

"Thunderstruck" is the first song on the 1990 AC/DC album The Razors Edge. The song peaked at number #5 on Billboard's Mainstream Rock Tracks. It was released as a single in Germany, Australia and Japan. Shown is the cover of the German release of the "Thunderstruck" single. The song is said to be inspired by lead guitarist Angus Young's hair-raising experience when a plane he was on was struck by lightning. However, Angus Young was later to say that it "started off from a little trick 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... It was really just a case of finding a good title. 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." Contrary to popular belief, Young does not play Thunderstruck's main riff with one hand. Instead, he picks every fretted note and pulls off the open notes. Additionally in all AC/DC live videos, Angus can clearly be viewed picking every fretted note. The one-handed tapping technique can only be seen in the "Thunderstruck" music video. The video which accompanied the single was filmed at London's Brixton Academy on 17 August, 1990. The audience members were given free T-Shirts with the words 'AC/DC - I was Thunderstruck' on the front and the date on the back, and these T-shirts were worn by the entire audience throughout the filming of the video. The music video of Thunderstruck on YouTube, as of May 2009, has over 20.6 million views.

AC/DC - Thunderstruck Song Lyrics



I was caught in the middle of a railroad track (Thunder)
I looked 'round, and I knew there was no turning back (Thunder)
My mind raced, and I thought "What could I do?" (Thunder)
And I knew there was no help, no help from you (Thunder)

Sound of the drums
Beatin' in my heart
The thunder of guns (Yeah)
Tore me apart

- WOW!!!

As the girl from poltergeist exclaims "They're Here". Way to go Apple. It's been a long time coming.

- Psyched that this album is available for purchase

This is, in my opinion, AC/DCs greatest album after to Back in Black. The mood of the album is dark, aggressive, and really speaks to you in certain ways. Thunderstruck is one of the most iconic riffs of all time. Having said that, "The Razors Edge" has a thundering rhythm section and a haunting guitar, with some crazy vocals on top. I would go on to explain the other songs, but there is not any combination of words that will do the album justice. If you don't already own it in some way, do yourself a favor and get it. AC/DC is absolutely timeless (seeing as a college student is writing about an album that was released before I was even born).

@CapelFaithful We must be. As much as I love Thunderstruck, people sit on their hands. The player Karaoke, same thing. During the winning drive against UCF, the old dude behind me told me to sit down ‘cus he had bad knees. But he stood for SC..


Do u think the cavemen played thunderstruck but with real thunder when it stormed.
