All 500 million of those iTunes users in the world are in luck: they can now listen to the new AC/DC album, Rock Or Bust, a week ahead of its December 2nd release date. The complete set is now streaming in its entirety as part of iTunes' "First Play" program, and the band didn't even have to dump it in your account without asking like a certain group from Ireland we all know.
AC/DC has used "rock" in a lot of song and album titles and we asked guitarist Angus Young why it felt like time to do it again: "Well, Rock Or Bust, it's a good, strong title and it's got the word 'rock' in it, you know? (laughs) 'Cause everyone says, jeez, you know, how many songs have they got with 'rock' in the title in it. But they've got to cut us some slack -- I mean, we've made 16 albums, you know." when the AC/DC drummer failed to show up on time for his court appearance to address the charges against him. Rudd was scheduled to appear in court at 9:00 a.m. but arrived several minutes late. Rudd did not enter a plea and had his bodyguard give him a piggyback ride to his car after the hearing was over. Rudd then backed up the vehicle into the path of an oncoming truck, almost causing an accident. Rudd is set to return to court on December 2nd.AUDIO: AC/DC'S ANGUS YOUNG ON THE TITLE 'ROCK OR BUST'
