It goes without saying that AC/DC’s “Thunderstruck” is one of the most rocking song intros of all time. The first time I heard it, I was just a young prep school honor student with a sensible haircut and dreams of one day becoming a banker. Two minutes into Angus Young’s searing guitar licks, I was knocking over a liquor store with a topless biker chick named Raspy. In all the time since, one thing I never wondered was what Thunderstruck would sound like mashed up with Ray Parker Jr.’s Ghostbusters theme (which is basically a rip off of Huey Lewis’ “I Want a New Drug”*). Neverless, someone at Wax Audio wondered for me, the result is “Thunderbusters”. And now I know what the soundtrack to Gary Busey’s inner monologue sounds like.
Sidenote: Who do you think looks stinkier, Brian Johnson or Lemmy from Motörhead? And before you answer, you have to give Johnson a three liver-spot handicap. Discuss. …Okay, probably still Lemmy. What about Brian Johnson and both Young brothers combined?
*Lewis sued, they settled out of court, and Lewis discussed the incident on Behind the Music, for which Parker then sued Lewis for breaching a confidentiality agreement. What, no “no tagbacks” rule?
