Now this is very important stuff, this is what the internet is for, not looking at photos of cute cats and dogs all day….
Here’s a question you’ve probably never asked yourself: “What does it sound like if you string together the end of every AC/DC song ever made?”
A couple of guys called Mark and Neanderpaul (over at 100.7 KSLX FM) decided they would find out the answer. They took the dying moments of every single AC/DC song ever recorded and lovingly stitched them together into a weird crochet of crashes and chords.
I don’t know how long it took them, but it must have been a labour of love, and I assume there were times when they really wished they hadn’t bothered starting. On the plus side, what they have given the world is a wonderful insight… well, perhaps “insight” is too strong a word.
And while we’re here sharing all this high art…. Yeah
