You already know the iconic opening riff. Played on just 1 string. Just goes to show how genius Angus really is. But there’s something about this song that goes so well with military footage, especially “speed” and “explosions”. Maybe it’s the actual lyric ‘thunderstruck’ and the tempo of the song. It just sounds so, heavy, and powerful. Just like how CCR goes so well with Vietnam era footage. There’s something about the style of their band that just fits so well.
In this clip, we find a compilation of pretty awesome military aircraft causing chaos including the famous Apache attack helicopter. One of many’s favorites. Along with it the AC/DC track that just suites all the carnage. Their songs have been featured in many film production, one of the most noted which is the Iron Man films.
