AC/DC – Shot In The Dark

It’s good to know somethings just don’t change. This could have been recorded in 1980 and we would not have known. We need consistent things in life and AC/DC gives that to us.

This is a new sneak peak single off of their upcoming album.

Well…they continue their tradition of a riff and a few chords and it works every single time. Brian Johnson, Cliff Williams, and Phil Rudd are back with them and they are coming out with a new album called…Power Up.

The album will contain unreleased songs that were written by Angus and his late brother  Malcolm, who died in 2017.

“This record is pretty much a dedication to Malcolm, my brother,” Angus Young said… “It’s a tribute for him like ‘Back in Black’ was a tribute to Bon Scott.”

Here is a youtube comment I had to copy over:

And ACDC came back to save the world.

Shot In The Dark

[Verse 1]
I need a pick me up
A Rollin’ Thunder truck
I need a shot of you
That tattooed lady wild
Like a mountain lion
I got a hunger, that’s the loving truth

[Pre-Chorus]
You got a long night coming
And a long night pumping
You got the right position
The heat of transmission

[Chorus]
A shot in the dark
Make you feel alright
A shot in the dark
All through the whole night
A shot in the dark
Yeah, electric sparks
A shot in the dark
Beats a walk in the park, yeah

[Verse 2]
Blast it on the radio
Breaking on the TV show
Send it out on all the wires
And if I didn’t know any better
Your mission is to party
Till the broad daylight

[Pre-Chorus]
You got a long night coming
And a long night going
You got the right position
The heat of transmission

[Chorus]
A shot in the dark
Make you feel alright
A shot in the dark
All through the whole night
A shot in the dark
Yeah, elеctric sparks
A shot in the dark
Beats a walk in the park, yеah

[Bridge]
My mission is to hit ignition

[Chorus]
A shot in the dark
Make you feel alright
A shot in the dark
All through the whole night
A shot in the dark
Yeah, electric sparks
A shot in the dark
Beats a walk in the park, yeah

    1. It just astounds me on how they don’t’ change whatsoever…I like them for that…and they remain relevant. I’m anxious to listen to see what else they have.

  1. Just gave it a listen…there’ s no mistaking who that is. I was surprised Brian Johnson was back with them, thought Axl Rose had replaced him. This one a little better than I would’ve expected, definitely has that ‘Back in Black’ or ‘For those About to Rock’ sound.
