Australian hard rockers AC/DC have announced a new contest where they are asking fans to create their own version of the "Rock 'N Roll Train" video and upload it to YouTube with a "ACDCGiveItAllYouGot" tag on it. Prizes to be given away include an Angus Young signature model Gibson SG and a Malcolm Young signature model Gretsch G6131MY signed by AC/DC, along with five signed copies of the band's new album, "Black Ice".

Fans responded enthusiastically to the first AC/DC world tour in eight years with 18 "Black Ice World Tour" concerts selling out in record time. Unprecedented fan response forced additional shows in Chicago, Los Angeles, and Oakland. The "Black Ice World Tour" opens on October 28 at the Wachovia Arena in Wilkes-Barre, PA. The worldwide tour the band's first since 2001 promotes "Black Ice", AC/DC's latest studio album.

The album is currently available for pre-order at www.walmart.com and www.acdc.com.

    I am majorly pissed, I don't care where they were born, to me they're Aussies and they're only letting people from the US enter? Thats not RocknRoll! Also I would've thought they'd have more shows for us - I haven't heard dates for Sydney (but I could be wrong) Us Aussies Love You - Don't Let Us Down you're like our nation pride!

    I might just be overly optimistic about this, but do you think they'll have a later contest for people outside the United States?

    You'd think it'd be towards Aussies, and maybe Poms...

    I'm traveling 13 hours to see their final shows. I'm up in Northern MN and tix here sold out in 10 minutes because ticketsnow.com scalped 'em and raised the noise-bleed section from 89.50 to 231. To be on floor in MN would cost 1,600.00 and that is not a typing error. So we're taking couple days vacation and headed down to Chi-town.

    I love AC/DC. I wish they'd come to England already! I have most of their albums on CD and have learnt tonnes of their songs on guitar, yet I've never had a chance to see them live! I know, it doesn't make any sense!

    Selling the album exclusively at Wal-Mart, Sam's Club, and their own website. I wonder how much they got paid for that.
    Armagedn
    I don't even like the song that much, but free guitars are still free guitars.

    I can think of several videos one could make with a "train" theme. And yes, my head is in the gutter

    OF COURSE. frigging US citizens only.. the general Canadian AC/DC fan is screwed again..
    StereoFlare
    I understand bands that want fans to be more involved by why on earth would you ever do this over youtube? Make them submit it to their website so you don't get bad artists making bad videos.

    local stores are a pimple on walmart/sam's ass. walmart is one of the biggest store corporations out there.

    Wow now thats a very generous grand prize right there. Either sig guitar would set you back quite a bit. But odds are they're probably looking for something REALLY exceptional if they're shelling out that big of a prize for a video.

    I hear you. It's ironic because their album's recorded here in Canada anyway.
    strawforest007
    Open to U.S. citizens only. That's an outrage. Are they trying to keep the postage costs down, or have they already got a publicity deal with a U.S. newspaper for the winner? For a worldwide band, have a worldwide competiton. Please.
    Ead
    worldwide indeed.. I shouldn't have said just Canadian fans are screwed, practically everyone is. Unless you happen to live in the US.. then I guess you deserve a shot.

    Why ever limit your sales to a select few stores. It's not about the money, it's about the fans and they've no doubt made some mad/upset by selling it only in one store, regardless of how big it is. I despise Walmart and go out of my way to never shop there so if that's the only place I can get an album I'll just download it.
