On this day in music history: November 23, 1981 - “For Those About To Rock We Salute You”, the eighth album by AC/DC is released. Produced by Robert John “Mutt” Lange, it is recorded at Mobile One at: H.I.S. Studio and Family Studio in Paris, France from Spring - Autumn 1981. Issued as AC/DC’s official follow up to “Back In Black” (proceeded in the US by the belated release of their 1976 album “Dirty Deeds Done Dirt Cheap” (#3 US Top 200) in March of 1981), the album is recorded at the bands’ rehearsal space located in an abandoned factory outside of Paris, France. Working once again with producer “Mutt” Lange, recording takes place there when they are dissatisfied with the sound they get in a proper recording studio. The albums’ title is inspired by a book read by guitarist Angus Young titled “For Those About To Die, We Salute You”, about Roman gladiators. It spins off two singles including “Let’s Get It Up” and the title track. Original vinyl LP pressings feature the artist name, title and artwork embossed on the front of the gatefold sleeve. The track “Snowballed” (also issued as the B-side of “Let’s Get It Up”) is later heard in the film “Sixteen Candles”. “For Those About To Rock We Salute You” spends three weeks at number one on the Billboard Top 200, and is certified 3x Platinum in the US by the RIAA.


TITLE: Live & Learn Cover

ARTIST: 94Stones ft. Iris

The story isn’t over yet, and our heroes aren’t quite tired. This is a hard rock cover of “Live & Learn” from Sonic Adventure 2. The artist really kills it here with new instrumentals made from scratch; that solo in the middle is on point. No need to save your hunger for good music, you’ve paid in trade.
