Artiestinformatie

Land   Australië

Australische hardrockgroep opgericht in 1974 in Sydney, Australië door de uit Schotland geëmigreerde broers Angus en Malcolm Young (beiden gitaar), hun vaderlandgenoot Bon Scott, a.k.a. Ronald Belford Scott (zang) en de Australiërs Mark Evans (basgitaar) en Phil Rudd (drums; ex-Buster Brown).



Evans wordt vervangen door de Engelse immigrant Cliff Williams in 1977. Bon Scott komt op 19-02-1980 op 33-jarige leeftijd te overlijden aan overmatig alcoholgebruik.



De groep besluit verder te gaan met de Engelsman Brian Johnson. Phil Rudd laat zich vervangen door de Brit Simon Wright in 1983. Wright maakt de overstap naar Dio in 1989. Chris Slade (ex-Manfred Mann’s Earth Band, ex-The Firm) vervangt hem.



Angus en Malcolm zijn de jongere broers van George Young van The Easybeats en later Flash & The Pan.



Songtekst

A Rollin' rock, Electric shock
She gives a lickin' that doesn't stop [That don't stop]
She line 'em up, Push you 'round
Smokin' rings going round and round

Her hot potatoes
Will elevate you
Her bad behavior
Will leave you standing proud

CHORUS:
hard as a rock [I'm hard as a rock]
Hard as a rock
Harder than a rock [Well it's harder than a rock]
Hard as a rock
Harder than a rock [Well it's harder than a rock]

The lightnin' rod, Strike it hot
Gonna hit you like a Rushmore rock [It's gonna hit you like a Rushmore rock]
No nicotine, and no pipe dreams
So low and dirty it's darn right mean
Hell elevator
I'll see you later [Yeah, sooner or later]
no I ain't gonna take it
I'm busting out [Listen, I'm busting out]

Chorus

yea
Hard as a rock
Harder than a rock
Hard as a rock
yea

I'm getting harder
yeah
yeeeeeeeeaahh!

harder than a rock
Well I'm harder than a rock
Hard as a rock
Baby I'm harder than a rock
Hard as a rock
Well it's harder than a rock
hard as a rock
Yeah it's harder than a rock
yeah
hard as a rock
well I'm harder than a rock
hard as a rock
yes I'm harder, harder, harder, harder than a rock
