10. Blackjack (Runnin’ Wild, 2007)

“A little sinister opening, but then it kicks off in a faster paced song then previously heard on the album. I figured though, the drums have been exactly the same throughout the album, without a change of sorts. I hate it if things are kept exactly the same throughout songs, and I hate it even more if they are kept the same during an entire album”

9. Back In The Game (Black Dog Barking, 2013)

“Airbourne is the band that is taking the hard rock torch and running full steam ahead. Sure they may not have AC/DC numbers as far as album sales and fan base but that’s because people try and compare them too much like AC/DC. Even though very similar… Airbourne has an energy that AC/DC can’t do on their own without a team of stage production and money can provide.”

8. Blonde, Bad and Beautiful (No Guts. No Glory, 2010)

“Those guys managed to turn on the heat from previous decades. Although they actually are an AC/DC afterbirth, they came to take the baton and keep rock’n’roll alive.”

7. Diamond in the Rough (Runnin’ Wild, 2007)

“My favorite song off the album, because it is just that little more heavy and the riffs are straight rock N’ roll. Compared to Too Much, Too Young, Too Fast, this song is so much more rocking. It has this really adaptable pace and has this great vibe around it. Lyrics are about a certain rock subject as well.”

6. Bottom of the Well (No Guts. No Glory, 2010)

“The best song I’ve heard since a long time… When I’m down for any reason, this song gets me up, and every time I hear it I get the balls to do anything. I even like this song way more than most of AC/DC”

5. Stand Up for Rock ‘N’ Roll (Runnin’ Wild, 2007)

“I pushed the play button in my iTunes, having done a little background research on the band. I expected a direct copycat of AC/DC, which, in the first case, I got, but then I listened somewhat closer and I heard a band that surpasses AC/DC on any musical front. Holy crap, this band is SO energetic that you’re bound to move along with the pushing drums and supporting guitars. This is AC/DC like they were back in the day, and like they try to be lately. Great opener, with strong, high screeching vocals and awesome music.”

4. No Way but the Hard Way (No Guts. No Glory, 2010)

“This is the greatest song and video I’ve ever seen and heard in my life. This is the way Rock N Roll is supposed to be played, in the AC/DC vein. Killer vocals, awesome guitar, great lyrics, cool AC/DC type intro, awesome song.”

3. Live It Up (Black Dog Barking, 2013)

“They are the Spiritual successors to AC/DC and they do it so well. I don’t feel like they are Ripping Off AC/DC, they are letting their Legacy live on! Love the really fast riff and the strong vocals. This song became my personal anthem when I first heard it. “

2. Too Much, Too Young, Too Fast (Runnin’ Wild, 2007)

“A second single, or so I read on a certain rock site. It sure is commercial, only the pace is a lot slower compared to Runnin’ Wild, which makes it a little bluesier. And although I quite like the song, with the driving simple drums and easy guitars”

1. Runnin’ Wild (Runnin’ Wild, 2007)

“The title song, commercial, just like it is supposed to. Nice song, only the guitars are not as present as in Stand up for Rock N’ Roll, which is a shame, as they sound a little forced now, a little placed into the background. However, the main riff in the song is really catchy and easy to play. This could be a song that you learn new guitar player pupils at their third lesson or so. Catchy, just as early AC/DC songs were.”
