Trivia

This song's first video clip featured the band playing infront of some stairs in Melbourne along Swanson street. The original idea was to have the band in the back of a truck being driven down Swanson street but in the day of shooting the permit to do so was rejected. The producer was not happy with the filming of the first clip, and gathered the band to jump on the back of the truck and they would film it the way he intended with the band on a truck driving down Swanson St, but due to having no permit to do it, they only had one take and ran the possibility of being stopped by police, to which did no happen and the clip was filmed and used. The original first recording can be found on the AC/DC Backtracks DVD release. See more »
