I bumped this because I just saw this, maybe some of you already have. AC/DC released a video for the new single, Rock N Roll Train, in an unlikely format: Excel. Check it out.

Or to teh y0utube if you don't have excel

The excel thing was kinda neat/different.  But come on, its ACDC, do they even need a video?

Anyways, I've been listening to the cd more and more, its starting to grow on me.  I like the song 'Money Made'.

Brilliant.  Just brilliant.

THAT is why these guys are awesome.  They truly understand their demographic (or at least their marketing people do).

AC/DC is one of those bands that I enjoy, but never plan to own an album of or make an effort to. It's enjoyable to hear them on the radio and I haven't heard anything that I didn't enjoy, but on the same token I didn't hear anything that made me want to absolutely fall in love with the band like so many people have today. I wonder to myself sometimes if the people I know that say they "love" AC/DC actually love the music or love the fad that if they "love" the band people will think they are cool because it's "in" to like what was cool in the 70's and 80's.

You've already stepped on a nail, it isn't that big of a deal to you.

Don't be a jerk about this. I'd rather step on something sharp and pointy than listen to ACDC, too. But I was thinking a tac or something.

I like acdc and will probably get the album, but I am already gonna be sick of most of the cd by the time it comes out. I hate it when radio stations play nothing but the new singles nonstop. Like the first day when rock and roll train was ever played on the radio I was driving to school on my way to football and I hear exclusively on this radio station we hhave it ACDC's new single. We will be playing it every half hour. After the song finishes I switch to another station and oh wow guess whats playing. I swear for about 2 weeks straight I heard that song at least 3 times a day. So I have concluded that radio stations shouldn't be allowed to ruin songs. THey should just play them in moderation. Maybe bands just shouldn't release any songs off their new album until it comes out. Then peole wont be sick of their songs before the cd even comes out.

Who will want to buy the CD if they aren't familiar with any of the songs?

Besides, the bands make good money from radio play, often more than they make on record sales.

I try not to think of the negative. Not to mention, hair-club for men says I'm not that old!

Bands make about 10% of suggested retail price per album sold, so they average about a dollar per album sold, which most of that goes back to the record company to pay their expenses.  They have to sell about a million albums (on average) before the band itself even starts making money.  Assuming the band didn't write their own material, if they did, they get a lesser cut, the record companies say it's because they're also getting song-writing royalties, which is funny, because publishing companies give them a smaller cut when they record their own music, and say it's because they're making money off record sales as well.


I forget how much it is bands make off radio plays, but it's not much, and it all depends on market size and what times it's played.  Mostly all based on assumption.  I'd go into greater detail, but I can't remember all the rules off the top of my head, and I think my music industry/music law books are at the office.

I wonder that too.  I find that with games like Guitar Hero, a lot of younger people are getting into older music.  Go back 10 years ago and ask my friends if they know 'Free Bird'.  They'd probably say no.  Ask them today; "OMG Freeeeeeebird is so sweet, I love that song".

My dad had a big influence on me when it comes to music.  I grew up on the old stuff.

Yeah, cause there's nothing cooler than two guys on stage that should be dead from drug abuse by now attempting to relive their prime years through their most embarrassing album release ever. Seriously? They released it on a saturday, at walmart, for nearly 9 bucks. As far as I'm concerned you lose your "artist" status when you hit that point. It's just sad.

The Walmart deal was quite a good deal for them.

AC/DC's last CD, "Stiff Upper Lip" was released in 2000. In the first week, it sold 131,000 copies, and has shipped 900,000 currently. Week 1 sales for "Black Ice" have destroyed those records (780,000 copies sold), and will probably soon beat the total sales for the last album.

In the future, I think you'll see more and more bands using alternative forms of music distribution, as they are fed up with record labels.
