AC/DC were a great band in their time and back then they wouldn't have sucked. But now the world has moved on and AC/DC are old.

oh yeah, they suck

well, i'm not replying to this person specifically, but anyway, saying they suck is really just. well, i don't know. everyone has their opinions. but my point is that alone, the musicians aren't all that great, but AC/DC as a whole is undoubtably a great band. i certainly wouldn't say Angus or Malcom were really great guitarists, but what they did turned out great. kind of like Slayer. Kerry King and Jeff Hanneman are really not that good... at all. but Slayer, in the end, is still an awesome band. i'm not sure how to explain it, but i still like listening to Slayer and AC/DC, just not the same way i listen to bands like Pantera and Judas Priest. the band members alone are notably amazing players in their own right. anyway that's my opinion on this whole thing.

ac/dc fucking sucks.. they're a shitty simple rock n' roll band with a singer who has a fucking lousy voice. Half of their discography is shit and they're still shit today. They're overrated and AC/DC fans are very close minded people. Their new album will have four songs that have the word rock in it.. three songs will have balls in it.. and one song will just chant the title track.. AC/DC basically uses the same song structure for every song and even the band admits to being simple. The band shows no evolution as they stayed simple for over 30 years. Oh God even The Rolling Stones can release an album today (A Bigger Bang) that is still good unlike AC/DC.. Oh noes.. Oh yeah the only reason why people accept AC/DC as a good band is because they're a classic rock band.. or because angus is a good guitar player.. sorry dude but a good guitar player isn't enough to make one a good band.. Now I want to see someone actually argue with these points. If you just flame me and not argue back then your post is void and I win. Listen to these artists who are experimental and show evolution and aren't fucking bland like those generic bastards AC/DC..

ACDC SUCK???? WTF!!!!!!!!????????

ACDC is one of the most kick-ass bands ever! Mouthin' off about ACDC is practically mouthin' off about everything rock 'n' roll stands for! Sure the singer has a "strange" voice, and maybe they are just a couple of tards in tight pants...but that's what makes them so f***ing awesome! The fact that theyre just a bunch of average joes AND can rock peoples balls off for 30 years makes them an incredible rock entity!

Then again, people have thier own opinions. If you think ACDC sucks, your entitled to that opinon. Besides, its your loss not mine. \m/

Hah like AC/DC has any style? Even Brian Johnson said that they kept it simple. The only style that I see from AC/DC is that they use the same song structure for many of their songs and they like to chant the title track on their chorus. Examples: highway to hell, stiff upper lip, hard as a rock, flick of the switch, for those about to rock we salute you, thunderstruck, high voltage, tnt.. i could go on forever.. and Angus is pretty overrated.. Malcolm is actually a better guitar player than Angus.. not only does he write the riffs but he can also play it better.. Malcolm doesn't want to play it though because he's lazy.. anyways even Angus and Malcolm can't save the band from mediocrity.. Don't agree? Look at their discography after Back In Black and you'll see what I mean.

I know that Angus doesn't make the band and they do stay in the same just about all the time, but then so does Opeth, Iron Maiden, and a couple other I don't really feel like typing this morning. Now I'm not saying Ac/Dc is one of the best bands in the world, but they did bring a new style into rock. Oh and the cure sucks ass.

Opeth does stay the same but they're very consistent.. I wish I could say the same for AC/DC. Iron Maiden weren't the same most of their career.. They were a punkish band in the beginning, a progressive like band later, they tried to go to a raw sound but failed at that, they were gothish for a short time, then they went back to their classic sound which fits them the most.
Oh and The Cure is awesome.. why don't you like them? Do you think they're pussies? They're one of those pop-punk bands who are actually good like The Ramones..

Everyone has their own opinion on bands, like how I hate all Emo bands, some people "hate" or "dislike" AC/DC. I personally love AC/DC, but if you got a problem, that's nice. I mean, you can stick up for a band, but you shouldn't get pissed over one person not liking them. They've sold millions of albums with REAL music. Not some crappy ass fad music for 11 year olds. AC/DC has lived it's time, and then some.

If you like them, good for you.
If you don't, who cares?

Dude you so contradicted your self.. You may not have noticed this but AC/DC right now is just another classic rock fad just like Led Zeppelin or Pink Floyd... and what exactly is real music? Please elaborate..

AC/DC wasn't a fad, and neither is Pink Floyd, its been over 20 years, and tons of people still listen to them. And when they first came out, they weren't popular. Alot of people hated them, thought they were satanists and all that crap. Lol, they said AC/DC meant Anti Christ/Devils Child lmfao.

And real music, music that requires a decent amount of talent, or at least has a point to the songs other then like, "My girlfriend broke up with me, I hope she dies" or "Yo, lemme tap that ghetto ass girl."

Songs that actually talk about something that is occuring around the world, or where ever. Not some stupid fags and how said they are about their girlfriends.

AC/DC wasn't a fad? Pink Floyd wasn't a fad? 3 years ago no teenagers listened to classic rock.... Today I see 15 year old fuckers with brown hair that owns a Led Zeppelin, Guns N' Roses, Pink Floyd, or AC/DC shirt...
And like AC/DC has any point to their songs? Only thing I see are songs about balls, fucking women, and too many rock n' roll anthems.

Yeah, some of their songs are stupid, but at least it has talent in it.

That has got to be one of the worst examples ever. Of course AC/DC doesn't fucking go "LETS GET LITTLE KIDS INTO OUR CLOTHING".. The actual band doesn't have to start the fad.. and the little shits that don't listen to AC/DC makes it even more of a fad.. and talent isn't enough to make good music.. it takes many things such as originality, innovation, evolution, experimentation etc.. AC/DC hasn't done any of that stuff in the last 30 years.. They started as a simple rock n' roll band and they stayed that way their entire career... That's why they're mediocre.. Just listen to the albums Stiff Upper Lip or Ballbreaker..

AC/DC is good if you listen to them for what they are; a pop-rock band focused on selling as many albums as possible. Similer to glam, but without the makeup. They play 3 chords that will be successfull. Bands like Pink Floyd tried new things; Iron Maiden stuck to their metal roots (once they found them) and didn't sell-out. But AC/DC should be listened to if you want a catchy melody, not lyrical or musical sophistication. You can't compare AC/DC to Pink Floyd, Led Zepplin or Iron Maiden because they set out to do 2 different things

Old or not I think I'd still hate them, I cringe anytime I hear Brian Johnson from back in Black. I used to like them, but after a few listns it just gets annoying, after a few more it's downright digusting. I've heard better music from australia in the form of wolfmother, let alone ACDC. Good guitar, no voice.

Some people like ACDC, and some people don't. Can't you all just deal with that? Good grief.
