AC/DC - T.N.T.



This explosive rocker was originally released in 1975 in AC/DC's home country Australia on their second album, which was also called T.N.T. Their first two Australian releases were combined to form High Voltage, which was released worldwide. The album fared well in Europe, but met stiff resistance in America: Rolling Stone called it an "all time low" for hard rock in their scathing review.

This was one of AC/DC's first singles with Bon Scott on lead vocals. Originally a roadie, he took over lead vocals when their first singer, Dave Evans, didn't show up for a gig.

AC/DC found a good way to capture the energy of their live shows for the High Voltage album: they went into the studio and recorded right after gigs. The result was a very raw, but energetic sound, smoothed out with production by Harry Vanda and George Young (brother of Angus and Malcolm), who were members of the group The Easybeats, best known for their hit "Friday On My Mind."


Lyrics


Oi! Oi! Oi! Oi! Oi! Oi!

Oi! Oi! Oi! Oi! Oi! Oi!

Oi! Oi! Oi!


See me ride out of the sunset

On your color TV screen

Out for all that I can get

If you know what I mean

Women to the left of me

And women to the right


Ain't got no gun

Ain't got no knife

Don't you start no fight


'Cause I'm T.N.T., I'm dynamite

T.N.T., and I'll win the fight

T.N.T., I'm a power load

T.N.T., watch me explode


I'm dirty, mean, I'm mighty unclean

I'm a wanted man

Public enemy number one

Understand?


So lock up your daughter

Lock up your wife

Lock up your back door

Run for your life

The man is back in town

So don't you mess me 'round


'Cause I'm T.N.T., I'm dynamite

T.N.T., and I'll win the fight

T.N.T., I'm a power load

T.N.T., watch me explode


T.N.T

Oi! Oi! Oi!

T.N.T

Oi! Oi! Oi!

T.N.T

Oi! Oi! Oi!

T.N.T

Oi! Oi! Oi!

T.N.T

Oi! Oi! Oi!


I'm dynamite

T.N.T

Oi! Oi! Oi!

And I'll win the fight

T.N.T

Oi! Oi! Oi!

I'm a power load

T.N.T., watch me explode!
