Pretty cool cut scene with Dom and Maria. Sad, but cool. Very cinematic.

I love this series and not just ones related to Baseball or Football. Every kind of sport they have done a feature on has been pretty informative as well as entertaining. More to come.

AC/DC (Flick Of The Switch) 1983

Flick Of The Switch would be the last album to feature long time Drummer Phil Rudd, who was fired midway through the recording of the album due to a falling out between him and Malcolm Young. It would be a long time before he would find his way back into the band, returning in 1994. Taking over on Drums would be Simon Wright.

This album for whatever reason is considered to be the ugly step child of the AC/DC catalog with fans. Yes, it failed miserably when it came to sales. But how can anyone expect them to equal that of what they did with the last 3 albums. What AC/DC did is nothing short of a miracle. They created 3 successive masterpieces in a row. Any band would be lucky to just get 1. So, with their track record, expectations were at an all time high to keep the streak going. They didn't. I don't have a problem with FOTS like a lot of people do. I guess the one knock against FOTS would be that there was no true, definitive anthem to be found on the album.

Fave Songs: Rising Power, Flick Of The Switch, Guns For Hire, Deep In The Hole and Bedlam In Belgium

Album cover gets the prize for being the most literal interpretation of an album's title. AC/DC. A switch. Angus' flicking it.

AC/DC (For Those About to Rock) 1980

Inner Sleeve

For Those About to Rock. Oh f*ck me. Many AC/DC fans will go to the end of the earth saying this is the definitive AC/DC album and I really wouldn't even try to argue with that assessment at all because it's that damn good. You really can't lose with either Back In Black or For Those About to Rock. On the other end of the spectrum you will have fans saying it sucks. Whatever. Rolling Stone Magazine is a weird publication if you ask me. For their review, they said that this album is the best one ever for the band, yet it doesn't even rank in their Rolling Stones 500 Greatest Albums Of All Time list. Go figure. Personally I would put FTATR in the Top 25. Once again Production falls into the mighty hands and ears of Robert John "Mutt" Lange. I highly recommend this album for anyone looking to get into the band. This was the only AC/DC album to go #1, until Black Ice came out in 2008.

The album opens up with one of the greatest openers ever with the title track in the form of For Those About to Rock (We Salute You) . I say that a lot, but this ranks right up there as one of the all time best. It's got cannons damn it!!!  Other great songs that need to be savored are Put The Finger On You, Get It Up, Breaking The Rules and Night Of The Long Knives.

Fave Songs: All of 'em. Co-MVP goes to....For Those About to Rock (We Salute You) and Night Of The Long Knives

Album cover is ok. I love the idea of the cannon, but I hate the rust color.

Cee Lo Green - F*ck You!

I dedicate this song and video to the higher-ups that feel the need to dictate what I can and can't say...or sing for that matter. Thanks Mac;D

AC/DC (Back In Black) 1980

Inner Sleeve

Rolling Stones 500 Greatest Albums Of All Time
Back In Black
at #26

Back In Black. What an amazing achievement by AC/DC to not only follow up the greatest Bon Scott era album in the form of Highway To Hell, but to throw down the gauntlet and exceed it and let everyone know that they were back and stronger than ever with new singer Brian Johnson. This is easily the best album with Brian and they have been trying to top it ever since, which is just impossible. Rolling Stone Magazine has this at #26. Sorry, but once again, they failed in their ranking. This is clearly Top 10 material IMO. With 49 Million units sold, this sits at #2 for most albums sold, right behind Michael Jackson's Thriller album. Back In Black is the highest selling album by any band and the highest selling hard rock album of all time.

This album is more or a less an unofficial Greatest Hits set with so many great tracks from Hells Bells to Shoot To Thrill to Let Me Put My Love Into You to Back In Black to You Shook Me All Night Long to Rock and Roll Ain't Noise Pollution. There isn't one wasted second here. This is AC/DC lasting legacy and a fitting tribute to the late, great Bon Scott. Once again, Producer Robert John "Mutt" Lange works his magic and creates another masterpiece. There is a reason why I consider him to be one of the greatest producer of all time. He is right up there with George Martin IMO.

The first time I heard this album when it came out I was just absolutely floored by how f*cking good it was with a replacement singer. Honestly, I didn't think the album would be much at all. How do you follow up the best Bon Scott album with an unknown singer? The odds were stacked against them. But wow, they blew the doors down and are still thriving to this day.

Fave Songs: All of 'em. But MVP goes to....You Shook Me All Night Long

Album cover ftw!! Before there was Spinal Tap and Metallica, there was this....the original all black cover.  The band chose to go with all black as a sign of mourning for Bon. I will replace the back cover with the original vinyl version once I can find it online somewhere. (UPDATE: Look above)
