AC/DC - Rock And Roll Ain't Noise Pollution


This is the final track on Back in Black, the first album AC/DC recorded after their lead singer, Bon Scott, died on February 19, 1980 at the age of 33. The album can be interpreted as a tribute to Bon, or even a "f--k you" to all critics and others besides who had no respect for the band and thought they would fall through because of Bon's death. Whatever it was meant to be, Back in Black is one of the most successful albums of all time, with more than 42 million copies sold worldwide. Just two days after Bon's funeral, Angus and Malcolm Young went back to work on the album. Malcolm explained at the time:


"I thought, 'Well, f--k this, I'm not gonna sit around mopin' all f--king year.' So I just ran Angus and said, 'Do you wanna come back and rehearse?'"


Lyrics


Alright Hey there, all you middle men Throw away your fancy clothes And while you're out there, sittin' on the fence So, get off your ass and come down here 'Cause rock and roll ain't no riddle, man To me, it makes good, good sense Good sense, just go Ow Ooh, yes Heavy decibels are playing on my guitar We got vibrations comin' up from the floor We're just listenin' to the rockers givin' too much noise Are you deaf, you wanna hear some more? We're just talking about the future Forget about the past It'll always be with us It's never gonna die Never gonna die Rock and roll ain't noise pollution Rock and roll ain't gonna die Rock and roll ain't noise pollution Rock and roll, it will survive Yes it will, ha ha I took a look inside your bedroom door You looked so good lyin' on your bed Well, I asked you if you wanted any rhythm and love You said you wanna rock and roll, instead We're just talking about the future Forget about the past It'll always be with us It's never gonna die Never gonna die Rock and roll ain't noise pollution Rock and roll ain't gonna die Rock and roll ain't no pollution Rock and roll is just rock and roll Rock and roll ain't noise pollution Rock and roll ain't gonna die Rock and roll ain't no pollution Rock and rollin' will survive Rock and roll ain't no pollution Rock and roll it'll never die Rock and roll ain't no pollution Rock and roll Ah, rock and roll Is just rock and roll, yeah
