    Default ACDC and Kiss

    Ok, so to me both these bands are pretty much the same. Big difference is that on the one hand you've got a bunch of guys dressed up like some kind of wierd samurai dolls and on the other hand you've got a guy dressed up as a 50 year old private school kid.

    I mean, is it me or are both those bands just plain wierd? Un-Joyful and totally non-uplifting right?

    Anyone else see it that way?

    Now now, AC/DC always uplifts me! As for the get up, if you could pull it off and make millions of dollars, wouldn't you?

    They're entertainers. Their fans love them. They make pooploads of money doing what they don't consider to be work.

    You want joyful and uplifting ?

    Saw a 14 year old kid wearing an AC?DC t-shirt once. When I told him what AC/DC meant, he was horrified!!!

    Hah! I'll bet you'd be talking out of the other side of your mouth if I'd said those things about the Backstreet Boys!

    Muppets? No, no - not me thanks. Anne Murray is where it's all at. Now SHE is joyful and uplifting!

    Yep AC/DC sucks. Well over 100 sold out shows since 2009. I am sure they care about a few people who think they suck lol...

    Malcolm and Angus Young developed the idea for the band's name after their older sister, Margaret Young, saw the initials "AC/DC" on a sewing machine. "AC/DC" is an abbreviation for "alternating current/direct current". The brothers felt that this name symbolised the band's raw energy, power-driven performances, and a love for their music."AC/DC" is pronounced one letter at a time, though the band is popularly known as "Acca Dacca" in Australia.

    Well, at least Gordon Lightfoot isn't dead after all. Man, that was a major relief!
