New AC/DC Single "Leaked" To Youtube
The following report is courtesy of Andrew Ramadge from News.com.au:
Perhaps driven insane by an eight-year wait for new material, die-hard AC/DC fans have sunk to a hilarious new low in rock and roll fandom.
In the same week that songs from U2's upcoming album were leaked online, fans of the Australian heavy metal pioneers have given the world a preview of AC/DC's new single 'Rock N Roll Train' – played on air guitar.
Fans who attended a film clip shoot in London last week were among the first in the world to hear the new song and, instead of leaking an unauthorised recording, have set about recreating it themselves on YouTube.
One video shows a fan dressed as Brian Johnson singing 'Rock N Roll Train' in his bedroom. Another clip features a fan "singing" the song's main guitar riff in a series of "nah, nah, nah" noises.
Yet another clip shows a fan playing the song on guitar, after having the riff described to him by a friend who was at the film shoot.
'Rock N Roll Train' is the first single from AC/DC's 15th album Black Ice, set to be released in October, and the first new song since the band's 2000 album Stiff Upper Lip.
Last week four songs from the upcoming U2 album, rumoured to be titled No Line On The Horizon, were leaked on YouTube and then taken down.
Rather than the usual culprits, such as advance album copies and industry insiders, the source of the leak was apparently Bono himself. A fan walking past the singer's villa in southern France noticed the album was playing and stopped to record it on a mobile phone.
