I want to know how you guys play AC/DC's "Thunderstruck". My friend does it by tremolo picking. I prefer tapping the fretboard to get the desired sound. What's your technique?

It's not tremolo picking, it's just alternate picking, it's nowhere near fast enough to be classed as tremolo.

Also: the original was picked, you can hear the pick noise on the recording.

I've always done it tapping. That's how he playing it when I saw them live a few years back and that's how I learned it when I was little.

Picked...you want the pick attack to be sharp. If you want to stay true to the recorded version anyhow...IMO it sounds better picked.

It was recorded picked but he usually always played it tapped live. I switch it up, just play it whichever way you like better but it will help you build your skill/technique if you could play it both ways.

A lot of things seem to start out picked and end up tapped. I wonder why.

live Angus will showboat a bit and keep the riff going with his left hand whilst he does the devil horns, but it's still really a picked lick.
