In celebration of the 40th anniversary of their 1980 Back In Black album, AC/DC has just posted a vintage video of the band performing the album's "You Shook Me All Night Long" on YouTube. The clip was shot on February 4th, 1981 at Tokyo, Japan's Nihon Seinenkan.
Blabbermouth reported that back in December, the RIAA verified the album 25 times platinum. Back In Black, which was released on July 25th, 1980, marked the band's first following the death of frontman Bon Scott, with Geordie lead singer Brian Johnson replacing him.
AC/DC's co-founding guitarist Angus Young told us a while back why the band never shies away from playing its biggest hits in concert: ["You wanna play what people expect of you, y'know? When I was young and you and I would go see someone, y'know, I wanted to hear what I knew and what was, you know, my favorite tracks, y'know? And I think it's the same for us, y'know? If I went to see something like the (Rolling) Stones, y'know, I want to hear, y'know, (the) 'Jumpin' Jack Flash'-es, and I want to hear their hits. And I would suppose it would be the same for the Beatles in their time, y'know? So, I've always viewed it as that."] SOUNDCUE (:23 OC: . . . it as that)
