AC/DC Rocks The Wine Making Biz

Today is your very lucky day. Because you can go to your local wine store and ask, “Hey, do you have any bottles of AC/DC?” and they will not look at you like you are crazy. Yep, the rockers from down under have released their own line of vino. Which I find strange because, when I think of AC/DC, the corresponding alcohol isn’t wine— rum and coke or Jagermeister shots seem more fitting for the guys who made their mark rocking out in shorts. But hey, they’ve tried to edge up the product by giving the varieties names like “Highway to Hell” Cabernet Sauvignon and “You Shook Me All Night Long” Muscat. Buying birthday gifts for my guy friends just got a lot easier. [NY Daily News] Keep reading »

AC/DC Is The Preferred Music Of Sharks

After a long day of swimming and preying on sea life, sharks need to take a load off just like us humans. Instead of watching massive amounts of reality TV (not that I’ve ever done that), researchers have found that sharks enjoy some tunes to help them relax. According to a team studying the effects of music on a group of great white sharks in Australia, AC/DC—more specifically the song “You Shook Me All Night Long”—has been shown to calm the animals. When hearing that particular hard-rock anthem, the sharks became inquisitive and much less aggressive. Some of them even rubbed their faces along the speaker in a gesture of affection. I wonder if something like Enya would have the opposite effect and make them bloodthirsty? Not that I have any desire to find out. Keep reading »

Quick Pic: Is Erin Lucas’ AC/DC Tattoo The Pits?

We had no idea that “The City”‘s Erin Lucas was the daughter of AC/DC’s bassist, Cliff Williams. Betcha no one else did either and that’s why she got this tattoo, the AC/DC lightening bolt, under her armpit, on Father’s Day. [via Huffington Post] Keep reading »

10 Butt-Kicking Breakup Ballads

Over the weekend, The New York Times’ advice column, “Social Q’s,” got a query from a recently dumped girl who just couldn’t seem to cheer up. Writer Philip Galanes pointed out, the proper soundtrack can get you grooving to your own gloom! He singled out Pink’s new anthem about getting back out there after her own divorce, “So What.” He then encouraged the sad soul to sing along at full blast until it became her new mantra: “So, so what/I’m still a rock star/I’ve got my rock moves/And I don’t need you.” Yeah, that’s some solid (as a rock) advice! But Pink isn’t the only one who has weathered the storm after a split. Since misery loves company, here are The Frisky’s picks for beating the blues to get you back in the mood to be your butt-kicking self! Keep reading »
