Day 14: A Song That No One Would Expect You to Love

Now this is hard. I like just about every musical genre except for metal, country and rap. I think I’ve lost the ability to surprise anyone who has ever received a mix tape/CD from me. The best I can come up with for a seemingly unlikely Kriofske Mix candidate is AC/DC.  I’ve never bought one of their albums nor downloaded any of their songs (actually, no one can do the latter), but I kinda like them. And I love “Dirty Deeds (Done Dirt Cheap)”–simplistic and Cro-Magnon enough to make the Ramones seem like deep thinkers, but Bon Scott’s sneering, clipped vocal (I definitely prefer him over his successor, Brian Johnson) appeals to the pimply adolescent in me. Check out this performance, recorded in Australia in 1976–the youthful audience proves AC/DC’s allure extended well beyond biker bars.
