I don't like to play above or below people's heads. Basically, I just like to get up in front of a crowd and rip it up.
Young quotes
I'm sick and tired of people saying that we put out 11 albums that sound exactly the same. In fact, we've put out 12 albums that sound exactly the same.
Young
I love the music from Nat King Cole, BB King, Albert King... When I think of it, I wouldn't mind being renamed Angus King.




Young Angus quotes
You should hear me on my own. Itís horrendous.
I saw Deep Purple live once and I paid money for it and I thought, Geez, this is ridiculous.í
Young Angus
We're a rock group. We're noisy, rowdy, sensational and weird.
Angus Young quotes
"Angus Young's frantic over-the-top soloing has sparked many of AC/DC's biggest tunes. But beneath the reckless theatrics and naughty schoolboy images lurks a skilled guitarist."
Angus Young
If it was happening, I'd call it Heavenly Beast. If it wasn't happening, I usually call it Arsehole.
Young Angus quotes
It's just rock and roll. A lot of times we get criticized for it. A lot of music papers come out with: 'When are they going to stop playing these three chords?' If you believe you shouldn't play just three chords it's pretty silly on their part. To us, the simpler a song is, the better, 'cause it's more in line with what the person on the street is.
Young
The best AC/DC cover I've heard? There was an all-girl cover band in America, the Hell's Belles.
Young Angus
"Oh, no! me Mum would kill me for that!"
Angus Young
"Lyrics: wasted time in between solos."
