AC/DC certainly doesn’t want every article about its new album to reference the fact that the band’s drummer, Phil Rudd, was arrested for allegedly threatening to murder a few people earlier this month, but then AC/DC’s drummer shouldn’t have (allegedly) threatened to murder a few people. It’s kind of an elephant in the room. It’s not like we wouldn’t bring it up if the drummer from any other band were arrested for the same thing. In fact, we might start bringing it up in articles about every Australian hard rock band, just because it’s so interesting. Sorry, Jet and Wolfmother, but all of those articles we write about you might now contain a reference to Phil Rudd being arrested for threatening to murder a few people.
Now that we’ve got that out of the way, Entertainment Weekly is reporting that AC/DC’s new album, Rock Or Bust, is now streaming on iTunes. This should give everyone a chance to try out these AC/DC kids and see if they’re really worthy of being mentioned in the same article as Jet and Wolfmother, all without having to actually pay for the album. Rock Or Bust will be in stores—and purchasable on iTunes—on December 2.
