Releasing AC/DC on the world was more evil than any recession could ever be.

You clearly have no sense of music. AC/DC are great and anyone who thinks otherwise possibly has amusia.

For Those About to Rock is one of my least favorite songs in history.

On my list of top 10 most hated songs AC/DC occupies over a third.

That is some serious hatin'.

People are so used to criticizing religion in whispers, that a normal voice, sounds like a shout.

Its Along Way to The Top is one of my favorite songs, but almost everything else by them is generic rock.

AGREED!
One of the worst bands in the history of music.
Every song they sing sounds the same.
New album - exactly like the first one.
Waste of space.

You clearly have no sense of music. AC/DC are great and anyone who thinks otherwise possibly has amusia.

So I have amusia.
If you like them you are either
A) Australian
B) 14 years old
C) lost in some demented state and really living in a hospital bed even though you think you are walking around in real life
D) all of the above

I have to agree with the AC/DC hatein. I really dislike them, it use to be a mild dislike but over the years hearing it cranked at every single bar has driven me to the hate.

#1 - nickelback (wanna vomit every time I hear that assholes shitty voice)
#2 - beastie boys (bunch of former kids who thought they could sing yet none could carry a tune if it had a handle)

I disagree with #2.  They've done some cool stuff, and I don't think they've ever been concerned with "carrying a tune."  There's a lot more to them that the co-opted frat rock of "Fight for Your Right."  They're more innovative than Beck.
