I remember this song in the 80s going to basketball camp.Some people did not like it then,till joshua tree came out and then everyone loved U2..

69 For Those About to Rock (We Salute You) - AC/DC

How is this song so low in the poll? This should easily be top 10! come on people this is a anthem for any rocker that has to be cracked up as soon as it starts. FIRE!
