    I say they suck because they got famous on releasing the same song over and over again, and Brian Johnson sounds like a sheep being raped.

    But that's my opinion.

    brilliant to hear a rock soundtrack and leading single for a massive hollywood blockbuster. Has that happened since 'You could be mine on' T2?

    I agree with what "Josh" said to an extent... The last part definitely could have been a little more original though. "ACDC sucks anyway" ..at least give some reasons why they suck. Some insight into that statement would go a long way towards us understanding why you personally feel this hatred towards that band.

    What a retarded cash grabbing idea. If you're going to get a band to do a soundtrack at least get them to write songs exclusively for it (Mastodon is scoring Jonah Hex, Queen wrote the Flash Gordon soundtrack, Explosions in the Sky did the Friday Night Lights soundtrack, etc.). AC/DC sucks anyway.

    um... okay i (use to) love ac/dc as much as the next (30 year old) guy, but uh....
    oh whatever, maybe it will work.

    maybe having a soudtrack that is rabid with ac/dc tracks should just serve as a reminder that this movie will be good fun.

    Jon doesn't know how to put in good music for a scene or more, it's that one song he truly loves. Otherwise it was awesome and I sure hope this newer one is slightly better.

    I just personally hope the soundtrack to this movie doesnt fall short like the first one did. The trailers and commercials for the first one lead you to believe that there was going to be some pretty cool heavy songs that ride along with the picture. But in the movie itself, after Stark was working in his shop with STs "institutionalized" playing..not one good song was heard after that until the very end of the movie when they finally played Sabbath. -Music should play a big role in movies and this one should be no different...i just hope for a good selection that makes sense.
