This is possibly the worst drum song ever. Dead Player
Wow, I have played some pretty bad drum songs in my life, but THIS must be the worst... well, possibly a shared 1st place with Let There Be Rock (Live). Why do you ask? The answear is simple:

The same boring as hell beat going on and on for nearly 12 minutes with almost no fills, interesting parts, bridges or anything to make it the least bit entertaining. That's right, you get to play a very (and I mean very) basic rythm over and over again until you wish you were dead. Infact, where Let There Be Rock atleast made a good endurance test (good is the relative word here), this is just plain boring as there isn't even a decent tempo on the notes.

So, in short: Stay away from this song if you do not wan't to become suicidial and try to slit your troath with your drum sticks. I am not even sure if I am kidding.

Pros: It have like, what, 1 fill?

Cons: Playing this song is like a drummers personal hell, just alot more boring.

Great Guitar Solos. Really Boring Everything Else. Gigakoops
Let me start off by saying that the solos here, while containing some blank space, are a ton of fun. If it were just the solos I'd rate this a five. But everything else about this song is so boring. Even the verse and chorus riffs, which others have praised, bored me a little. And the tons and tons of dead space did not help either.

With the BRE, some people love overly drawn BREs. Since I play on a GH2 guitar, I loath them in general, but especially drawn out ones like this. It's painful to strum and move around the fretboard randomly for over a minutes. This is the second worst one to me, only one topping it is Let There Be Rock (Live).

Some fun parts, and some empty spaces. Dead Player
A 12 minute long song with 4 guitar solos? Oh boy! Oh wait, there is a reason it is 12 minutes...

So you start with a fairly decent riff, that goes over to a decent chorus (with a few random Ho/Po's that you might aswell strum, but it's not a big deal). This goes for about 2-3 minutes before we get a...

7 minutes long bridge!? Are you kidding me? The whole song is mostly just a bridge? And not like a sad kind of bridge, no, this is that kind of "silent" bridge with alot of empty spaces where there is nothing but the drumbeat going. Ok, there is 2-3 guitar solos spread around troughout the bridge, but even those have some pretty big empty spaces in them.

But after that painfully long bridge, we get back to the main riff/chorus and that again goes over to a fantastic ending solo that makes up for alot of that empty space. We get some nice tripplets, decending Ho/Po's and some other things thrown in, before it ends in the normal minute long Big Rock Ending that most live AC/DC songs have.

So even though the solos are alot of fun when things happen in them, we sadly have way to much empty space here to be interesting for the insane 12 minutes the song lasts. It is worth playing once or twice though, so play it when you get the time.

Pros: When it is fun, it is REALLY fun!

Cons: When it isn't fun, there is literarly nothing going on.

It's actually not that bad... zyyzyyzyy
This song isn't as bad as some people make it out to be. It still has flaws and it's repetitive, but overall it's actually a decent drum song and it even has some replay value if you are willing to deal with the bridge.

They'res one big problem with the drums on this song, and that's that it's the same pattern over and over again on the bridge, and it's a really long haul. However, that doesn't mean that it doesn't have its moments from one point to the other. At first, it lacks variation, but it has some pretty fun parts like the really fast crash-hits in the middle of the bridge and some of the patterns towards the end are actually pretty fun to play. The standard pattern, however, is NOT fun to play, and that's why a lot of people hate this song so much since it goes on so long.

The main riffs and choruses of the songs that are seperated by the bridge are actually pretty fun and not too difficult in my opinion. It's a standard pattern, but it has variation and it's a bright spot in this song. Then, there's the really long Big Rock Ending, which, unlike Let There Be Rock, doesn't feel like an insult to injury since your hands won't be tired. You'll rack up a ton of points there, which could push the amount of stars you have as well.

Overall, this song isn't too bad on drums, it just has its flaws. To be honest, I'd rather play this than all of the super easy AC/DC songs and I'd MUCH rather play this than Let there Be Rock (Live). It's at least difficult enough to provide a challenge, unlike the majority of RB: AC/DC on drums.

Long Drawn Out Blues-Based Rock risser
I really liked this song, but I'm a fan of the extended noodling bluesy guitar solos, like you'd find in a George Thorogood's "One Bourbon, One Scotch and One Beer", or in the middle of "Do You Feel Like We Do" by Frampton. If you like that kind of long, slow burn, call-and-response type of solos, this is a great song.

If not, well, you might be bored.

The song itself is a classic and the riffs are tight, but repetitive. Without the solos, I'd probably give it a 3, but I like them solos, so I gave it a 5.

Fantastic! RickC32
11 minutes long. 4 guitar solos. A BRE to rival "Iron Maiden". What more could you ask for?
