No, we are really not in any kind of pattern as far as featuring the good music goes, and there is not really a very wide-ranging genre of music called "bagpipe rock" either. Peak Stupidity intended to post a comparison of old and new church music tonight, but this AC/DC music seemed to take precedence.
This is just a warning, but if you are not in a position to turn this up loud, you should not be playing it at all. This is such high-energy uplifting music! The video is great too, as it shows an Australia (Melbourne in the mid 1970's) that I'd LUV LUV LUV to bug-out to. Got the bug-out bag, got the passport, got the cash, oh hell, now you need a time machine too.
This song/video features the original singer, Mr. Bon Scott, replaced after an early death by the limo driver, Brian Johnson. Per Wiki (yeah, see what I mean), "The song chronicles the hardships endured by a rock band on tour, such as being robbed, assaulted, stoned and cheated by a greedy agent.". Well, It's a Long Way to the Top, if you Wanna Rock and Roll! - from the album High Voltage:
Excellent guitar/bagpipe dueling leads there. I know only one guy who has bagpipes. He brought them over a few years back to show me around midnight, and I asked him play Scotland the Brave out on the front lawn. I don't think the neighbors would have appreciated it a whole lot more, even if he did know how to play it.
