At the risk of sounding reductive, it’s fair to say that, for much of their storied career, hard rock legends AC/DC have largely drawn lyrical inspiration from a) street-tough men, b) sexually liberated women, c) booze, d) Satan and e) rock and the art of rocking. This doesn’t tell the full story of course – Big Balls, of course, dealt with the Australian rockers’ well-documented fondness for high society social soirées, for instance – but you get the general idea. 

Imagine our surprise then when guitarist and bandleader Angus Young revealed this week that the inspiration behind of ‘DC’s most thunderous anthems, For Those About To Rock (We Salute You), from 1981’s For Those About To Rock was British poet, novelist and classicist Robert Graves.
