    But you still took the time read an article AND post a comment about an AC/DC tribute album, even though you don't like them? Why?

    I'm pretty sure all their albums (or just the one, I'm not that familiar with them) is an AC/DC Tribute album. I mean, seriously. They're just AC/DC reincarnate, except while AC/DC's still alive...

    A news article followed by a comments section kinda does imply people discussing their opinions He's certainly allowed to have one and voice it, too. This sounds pretty sweet, I have listened to a couple AC/DC tribute albums and haven't been totally impressed, hopefully this one will be different!
