AC/DC Launch POWER UP Logo Name Generator
As AC/DC gear up to release their highly-anticipated new album POWER UP next month, the rock’n’roll legends have launched a cool new logo generator for fans to get involved with.
The new function over at you.acdc.com works by simply inputting your name, and it generates your initials either side of the band’s iconic lightning bolt logo, with the same style and colours as the POWER UP artwork. Then, of course, you can share the cover on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram, or email it to a pal (and maybe try to convince them that you’ve been the secret brains behind AC/DC all along?!).

As well as being one of the biggest rock records of 2020, POWER UP is also a tribute to the late Malcolm Young, who passed away in 2017.
“I know Mal’s not with us anymore, but he’s there with us in spirit,” says Angus. “This band was his baby, his life. He was always one [to say], ‘You keep going.’ His big line always, every now and again, he’d go, ‘If you’re a musician, it’s a bit like being on the Titanic. The band goes down with the ship.’ That’s how he viewed it.”
Malcolm is credited as a writer on every track on POWER UP – which also sees the return of vocalist Brian Johnson, drummer Phil Rudd and bassist Cliff Williams – and Angus reveals that he even inspired the title.
“Even the title we gave it, POWER UP, pretty much sums him up, too,” he continues. “When he put on that guitar, he was one big guitar. To put it this way: When he played guitar, it sounded like there were two people playing.”
