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

I was caught
In the middle of a railroad track (Thunder)
I looked round
And I knew there was no turning back (Thunder)
My mind raced
And I thought what could I do (Thunder)
And I knew
There was no help, no help from you (Thunder)

Sound of the drums
Beatin' in my heart
The thunder of guns
Tore me apart
You've been - thunderstruck

Went down the highway
Broke the limit, we hit the town
Went through to Texas, yeah Texas
And we had some fun
We met some girls
Some dancers who gave a good time
Broke all the rules, played all the fools
Yeah, yeah, they, they, they blew our minds

I was shakin' at the knees
Could I come again, please?
Yeah the ladies were too kind
You've been - thunderstruck, thunderstruck
Yeah yeah yeah, thunderstruck

Oh, thunderstruck, yeah

Now we're shaking at the knees
Could I come again, please?

Thunderstruck, thunderstruck
Yeah, yeah, yeah, thunderstruck
Thunderstruck, yeah, yeah, yeah

Said yeah, it's alright
We're doing fine
Yeah, it's alright
We're doing fine
(So fine)

Thunderstruck, yeah, yeah, yeah,
Tunderstruck, thunderstruck, thunderstruck
Whoa baby, baby, thunderstruck
You've been thunderstruck, thunderstruck
Thunderstruck, thunderstruck
You've been thunderstruck
