    I LOVE Malcolm’s tone. Huge and ballsy. Pretty low gain too. Just volume.

    I made a playlist on my phone a while back called Bon Scott. Pretty obviously, it has all the Bon Scott albums only. My 5 year old likes it. We call it the rowdy playlist.

    I almost always like my rock music a bit more nuanced...but this is just primordial:

    Cheers.

    love Bon Scott era AC/DC. I think it is kinda weird how Bon signed off on the last track of the last album AC/DC did with him. It is like he knew it was the end of him with AC/DC.

    In the beginning
    Back in 1965
    Man didnt know about a rnr show and all that jazz
    White man had the guitar
    Black man had the Blues
    No one knew what they was gonna do, but Tchaikovsky had the news

    From memory...give me grace

    First AC/DC album I was introduced to. Pretty much guitar life changing. Doesn't get much better.

    How about giving you a better memory? You got the lyrics wrong.

    [Verse 1]
    In the beginning
    Back in nineteen-fifty-five
    Man didn't know about a rock 'n' roll show
    An' all that jive

    The white man had the schmaltz
    The black man had the blues
    No one knew what they was gonna do

    But Tchaikovsky had the news

    [Pre-Chorus]
    He said, "Let there be sound"
    There was sound

    "Let there be light"
    There was light

    "Let there be drums"
    There was drums
    "Let there be guitar"
    There was guitar


    [Chorus]
    Oh, let there be rock

    [Solo 1]

    [Verse 2]
    And it came to pass
    That rock 'n' roll was born
    And all across the land, every rockin' band
    Was blowing up a storm
    And the guitar man got famous
    The business man got rich
    And in every bar, there was a superstar
    With a seven year itch
    There were fifteen-million fingers
    Learning how to play
    And you could hear the fingers pickin'
    And this is what they had to say:
    [Pre-Chorus]
    "Let there be light
    Sound
    Drums
    Guitar"

    [Chorus]
    Oh, let there be rock

    [Solo 2]

    [Verse 3]
    One night, in the club called, "The Shaking Hand"
    There was a 42 decibel rockin' band
    And the music was good, and the music was loud
    And the singer turned and he said to the crowd:

    [Chorus]
    "Let there be rock"
