YouTuber Painstakingly Organizes His Baby’s Noises Into AC/DC’s Thunderstruck
Becoming a parent provides a very weird spark of creativity. Sure, there’s how your new child gives you a beautiful insight into the world and how deep the human heart can go — that whole thing. But after a couple of months of nonstop ass-wiping and thigh-pinching, a cabin fever sets in that can result in some Dr. Frankenstein-level creative expression emerging. Case in point, one YouTuber has recently posted a video in which he’s used the noises his baby makes to perform AC/DC’s Thunderstruck.
As you’ll see in the video below, for one full year YouTuber Matt MacMillan took footage of his infant son Ryan cooing, laughing, sneezing, and making all of the other sweet noises small children make (from their mouths at least). Then he spliced them together to have Ryan perform his own little version of the high-octane AC/DC hit, complete with Ryan’s sneezes provided cymbal hits. The result is an exercise in madness, but one that we can’t help but watch over and over.

Watch Baby Ryan “sing” Thunderstruck below. And while you may think the intro is the cool part, stick with it — the chorus and ending are especially hilarious:
D’aw. Right on, Ryan.
Even without releasing an album last year, 2019 proved to be an eventful year for AC/DC. The band’s massive 1980 album Back In Black was officially certified 25x Platinum by the RIAA. Meanwhile, Twisted Sister’s Dee Snider has said that he thinks the band are back together with vocalist Brian Johnson, and have an album in the works featuring tracks by the late Malcolm Young.
“I’m focused on one band for the 2021 Superbowl half time show: AC/DC!” tweeted Dee back in December. “Reuniting with new album next year, touring, celebrating 50 years together!” He then tweeted, “All four surviving members have reunited WITH tracks recorded by Malcolm while he was still alive. Malcolm’s nephew Stevie Young is replacing him (he’s done this a couple of times before). It’s as close as you can get to the original band.”
Listen to Great Balls, which isn’t officially an AC/DC song… though it probably could be.
