I like them. I can see how they are like AC/DC but I don't think they are total rip offs.

They do sound like AC/DC but I wouldnt call it a complete rip off. AC/DC are more Hard rock like, Airbourne has a pub rock sort of sound.

Ergh, I think I'm the only one who despises them.

Nothing original about them.

i don't think they're a ripoff, they're just some derivative spin off garbage.

their music has no depth whatsoever, just some husky vocals and some bull**** about long live rock n roll. i mean if you're gonna play over the top rock in this vein, at least throw in a convincing guitar solo or some humourous lyrics, but they have nothing.

Yes, they sound like AC/DC, but they're not rip-offs. Did you guys stop and think that this could easily be said for most of the new talent these days: rip-offs from a certain other band? Why? Because most of them sound just like some other band on the block. Unlike most bands these days, at least they carry talent with a catchy punch.

I Love Airbourne!!!

breath of fresh air in music from all this rap/emo etc etc just good song's that you can jam to and head bang.

i agree with Hair Banger they do carry talent with a catchy punch

who cares if they are a rip of AC/DC why just because they use simple chords? and the singer's voice reminds us slightly of an early Bon Scott? oh well who cares! AC/DC are legends and Airbourne are just big fans of them besides i think they are more fast paced, in your face style compared to AC/DC

i hope this band goes far

Just saw a video of them and I have to say they are nothing like AC/DC one because their lead singer is also their lead guitarist

*Facepalm*

I think they're OK, but they do sound too much like AC/DC. It sounds like they never listened to another band in their life.

Yeah but they said the same about AC/DC and Jet, Weezer and Steve Miller, apparently wolfmother and classic rock period, hell theres a lot more I just cant think right now. just a thought. I mean you might not like punk but look at all the punk bands they all just about sound the same. (and yeah I know this Modern Rock.) Hell one reason I like these guys is because they are just fun to listen to.

i'm sure everyone called ac/dc "chuck berry knock-offs with different vocals" when they first came out...hasn't anyone ever heard of influences?
