Watch AC/DC's New Video For Shot In The Dark

The leaked photos that appeared online last month showing AC/DC recording a new video in the Netherlands now suddenly make a whole lot more sense, as the rock'n'roll legends have released their awesome performance-based video for latest single Shot In The Dark.

Discussing the song with Rolling Stone, guitar legend Angus Young stated that Shot In The Dark has "got that great AC/DC vibe about it, great swagger, and a good AC/DC rock'n'roll chant".

"The title is a little bit cheeky because we all like a little nip [of alcohol] in the night or a few shots in the dark," he added. "I was very glad when the record company heard it [that] they felt it was a very strong song and should be the first one that people hear."

Discussing POWER UP as a whole, meanwhile, the musician explained earlier this month that the record is a tribute to the late Malcolm Young.

"I know Mal’s not with us anymore, but he’s there with us in spirit," Angus said. "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.

"Even the title we gave it, POWER UP, pretty much sums him up, too," he continued. "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."
