Blu-ray Review: AC/DC: Let There be Rock 30th Anniversary Limited Edition

AC/DC: Let There Be Rock
30th Anniversary Limited Collector’s Edition
Blu-ray | DVD
Directed by Eric Mistler, Eric Dionysius
Starring Bon Scott, Angus Young, Malcolm Young
Warner Bros. Home Entertainment
Release Date: June 7, 2011

Like them or not, the rock band AC/DC‘s influence on music cannot be denied. The three-cord jams of songs such as “Highway to Hell,” “If You want Blood (You’ve Got It,” and “You Shook Me All Night Long” continue to shape even modern rock which is so much different than that of the era of Bon Scott, AC/DC’s first (well sort of) singer.

Let There Be Rock is a classic concert film from 1979 (the last concert featuring lead singer Bon Scott who died soon after) featuring a mix of behind the scenes footage, interviews, and some other sort music video-ish set-up scenes to be played over the concert audio in various places. This film is easily one of the most successful concert films ever made, at least when it comes to truly capturing the energy of a performance. Lead guitarist Angus Young‘s onstage schoolboy-garbed antics and his sizzling blues-infused guitar solos spearhead one of the greatest rhythm sections in rock n roll history. The band blazes through classic tunes such as “Sin City,” “Highway to Hell,” “TNT,” and the title tune “Let There Be Rock” with so much energy you’ll feel like you need earplugs just to watch the movie on your television, especially when Angus decides to literally hang off one of the giant speaker cabinets on stage.
