Let me pick my jaw back up off the floor…

Sometimes I forget about AC/DC.

Sometimes I remember.

Jesus Christ.

They…they set the bar pretty high.

I have bands I turn to when I want to focus on some particular facet of pop excellence. The Beach Boys for vocal harmony. ABBA for pop hooks and production. The Police for part-writing. The Beatles for, well, sheer genius, which is a little harder to pin down.

But for power, for intensity, for cohesion as a unit, for drive, for professionalism, and above all for unrivaled, astounding showmanship — I’m telling you. This band. Geez.
