Here's a quick preview of the AC/DC's first promotional video from the Black Ice album. Rock N Roll Train was filmed in London on August 15th. The full video's not due out until September 19, 2008 and will likely play first on VH1.
In other tidbits of note, Undercover News reports that AC/DC is more popular than Miley Cyrus in Australia right now. Last week, fans purchased a total of 1025 more AC/DC albums in retail stores than the teen queen sold, even though she actually has the number one CD.
In fact, no less than six AC/DC albums reside in the ARIA Top 50 currently including TNT, Dirty Deeds, Highway To Hell, Who Made Who, The Razors Edge and Stiff Upper Lip. For full details, check out Paul Cashmere's latest post here.
Speaking of money, Business Review Weekly's annual list of the Top 50 Australian Entertainers was released Saturday and AC/DC was, once again, among the top artists with an estimated $12.0 Million (AU) in gross earnings last fiscal year. That was good enough for eight place on this year's list, but BRW went on to predict that AC/DC will be the top grossing act for 2009 due to the upcoming release of Black Ice and the band's subsequent world tour.
Lastly, for today, here's a video of some kid playing Let There Be Rock on Rock Band2.
