4Ever Songs: AC/DC ‘Highway To Hell’

This was the first AC/DC song to chart in the US. It helped drive huge sales for the Highway To Hell album, which has sold over seven million copies in America. It was AC/DC‘s sixth album, and their last with vocalist Bon Scott, who died in 1980 from excessive drinking. Their next album, Back In Black, was dedicated to him. Recorded in London, Highway To Hell was the first AC/DC album recorded outside of Australia.

Introducing…Amyl & The Sniffers

Where were you in 1977, Amy Taylor? The foul-mouthed singer of Amyl & The Sniffers wasn’t even born! As a matter of fact she was still a long way off (her birth certificate says…1996). Thinking about it, at that time her parents were kids who didn’t even listen to punk rock, they listened to AC/DC and Fleetwood Mac. Even so, when you’re hit with the ten angry eruptions of Big Attraction & Giddy Up you could imagine that Amy has shared rehearsal rooms, stages and pyjama parties with Poly Styrene, Ari Up and Ana da Silva. That’s how pure her Brit-punk repertoire sounds. Or better said, Aussie-punk, as they’re from Australia and pray to The Saints, The New Christs and The Birthday Party.

Divus Julius presents…Rival Sons

Jay Buchanan, Scott Holiday, Dave BesteandMichael Miley are the members of Rival Sons, a band founded in 2008 that has become one of the most outstanding bands on the Long Beach scene.

Inspired by the likes of Led Zeppelin, Deep Purple and Bad Company, the four piece captures the sound of classic blues rock with an extra dose of decibels, riffs, blunt percussions and Buchanan’s soaring vocals.

The band has released five albums to date—the latest being Hollow Bones (2016)—acclaimed by both the critics and the public. Their reputation in the international rock & roll circuit landed them opening shows for rock legends such as Aerosmith, Alice Cooper and AC/DC.
