just an AC/DC rip-off


however, i have to admit that too much, too young, too fast is a fun song to play

why are metal musicians prone to fatness?
Cause there music is heavy.

Yes they sound alot like acdc, but they have a completely different energy that i dont think acdc could have ever had.

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?

I bought the album cheaps for a laugh.

I'd say it's a little bit like AC/DC mixed with something else I can't quite place.

Def Leppard or Motley Crue maybe?
Skeet UK is awesome, he can get WD Music parts discounted.

This is my favorite band right now, sure there stuff sounds like ACDC, but they've added more energy to it. Can't wait to hear some of their future stuff.

I agree, they were one of the best bands at Mayhem Fest besides Disturbed and Slipknot in my opinion.

*sigh*

Apparently, nothing is worth listening to, unless its completely, totally original.

Except that there's nothing totally original, so there's apparently nothing worth listening to at all. That's the sort of nonsense that has lead to the "micro-genre" obsession on the Internet these days The reason we HAVE genres in the first place, is because BANDS OFTEN SOUND ALIKE. There's only so much variation that can exist.

So they sound like AC/DC had a baby with Aerosmith. BIG DEAL. If it sounds good and is played well, what the **** does it matter.

Jesus. Buncha 13 year olds.

I personally love AC/DC and Airbourne, sure they sound a lot alike, but they're the kinda band you can blast on the stereo and get everyone to start headbanging...good ol' fashioned party rock 'n roll, and i don't see any problem with that. both bands do get somewhat repetitive after awhile, but then again, what kind of music doesn't?

Agreed. Airbourne is good for just rocking out to, I don't think they mean to have a lot of depth behind their songs, they just want to rock out and play some loud music.

just so everyone knows, their massive UK tour in november promises to be a good 'un, especially now that Stone Gods have been announced as the supporting act. This has made my week, as my tickets are stored safely...

And yes, i do like Airbourne.

It is like a new AC/DC from our time, they are bringing back that loud rock n' roll, and that is great so what if they sound like AC/DC, grow up, people should "live and let rock"

I love Airbourne. Just picked up their album a couple of days ago and I can't stop listening to it. They kick so much ass.

My favorite song by them is What's Eatin' You. I can't help but bang my head to their album.
