AC/DC – That’s The Way I Wanna Rock N Roll (A Young/M Young/ Johnson) b/w Kissin Dynamite (A Young/M Young/Johnson) & Borrowed Time (A Young/M Young/Johnson)

1988

The second single culled from the Blow Up Your Video album, this raucous track is often overlooked by older members of the AC/DC army.

And yet it’s just as good as any singalong anthem the band has rolled out over the years.

Backed with Kissin Dynamite – the track which inspired the German metal upstarts of the same name – and Borrowed Time there’s plenty of rifftastic action crammed into the That’s The Way I Wanna Rock N Roll 12 incher.

And while we’d put our mortgage on the fact that none of these tracks will make a future live set, newer converts will find a pleasing parallel with Rock Or Bust‘s finer moments. What we really like about this record is the fact that the image used on the front matches the track perfectly – Bob King’s photo capturing Brian Johnson (replete with trademark tight denim) and Angus Young doing what they do best: rock and rolling.

And if they could have thrown in something other than another BUYV track and the throwaway Borrowed Time it’s still a piece of vinyl which brings back happy memories for any AC/DC fan who discovered the band almost three decades ago.
