Best song ever. As a kid I loved it for the choon, the Andy Capp stuff, it was filmed a stone's throw away & the fact that Corriene Russell was in the video*.
 
Now I love it for the boys' lament about Bon Scott.
 
*Corriene Rusell bit is still cool, tho'.

Love Angus pointing and laughing at Brian Johnson when he comes out of the chemist's and Brian dropping the Lucozade but 'best song ever'? I don't think it's the best song on Back In Black even.

On 20 different days I could give you 20 different answers, a lot depends on how you feel when you make your choice and discovering music you’ve not heard before.

Today it’s DC Boogie by Frank Zappa😀

This post started excellently, Ullman. I'm not sure it ended too well, tho' 😉

I agree. You Shook Me and the title track are great songs but for me Hells Bells is the best track on the album.

Takes something pretty special to top a Chuck Berry original - although it's Belton Richard's accordion that makes this cover so great.

I think Berry's vastly underrated in the history of music, he produced more 3 min slices of of greatness than any other solo artist, live you got 45 mins with a pickup band and that was it, cash in hand, goodbye, a legacy of his earlier treatment by promoter's. If he was in the mood the 45 min was bl**dy brilliant tho😎

I've had the Johnny Allen version on a few times this morning, it really is something special. Not being old enough to have heard it when it first came out, I first heard it on this compilation that Charlie Gillett put out in 1990.

I must have listened to "Promised Land" many hundreds of times in my life, and only today noticed that Chuck Berry had based the tune on the American folk standard "Wabash Cannonball." Mind you, it also took me quite a few years to spot that the Beach Boys had nicked Surfin' Usa off Chuck Berry.

Not sure you can say he was vastly underrated - off the top of my head, Lennon & McCartney both called him the greatest, as did Bruce Springsteen

Brian Wilson had to pay royalties to Chuck Berry for Surfin USA.

As for vastly underrated guys from that era, that surely has to go to Little Richard. The guy was completely outrageous. He’d be outrageous if he appeared today, in the 50’s it must have been off the scale.
