First AC/DC single sold for a lot of money

When Metallica sued Napster in 2000, everyone called them greedy. People were saying stuff like “How can you affect Metallica with a few mp3s?” — Very true, you can’t. Funny how life works, cause 12 years later, bands like Metallica and AC/DC are still doing well, whilst the only ones who really suffered from internet piracy are the small and mediocre bands who never got big enough.

After other bands are forced to cancel tours because of poor ticket sales, this crappy single from AC/DC sold for $1,225 on eBay.

Buy less collectibles and more ticket sales, dipshits!


Brian Johnson goes on tour… Without AC/DC

Brian Johnson is embarking on an American tour, and it isn’t with his band.

He’ll go to 10 different cities to tell stories from his book, “Rockers and Rollers…” Joining him will be Rachel Bolan and Scotti Hill from Skid Row.

Brian just turned 64 this month, so expect a lot of talk about Prostatitis and medication for Prostatitis.

Dates and poster after the jump.


Friday Top 10: Live videos I enjoy

It’s a very slow Friday here at the Dose of Metal office, probably because we don’t have one.

Anyway, since we don’t have a great Top 10 for today, instead of just not posting one, I’ve decided to do a half-assed one. Well, everything on this site is half-assed, so this would be more of a ‘quarter-assed’ article.

So this is a list of ten live videos I enjoy. If you can’t cope with so much mediocrity, please understand that it’s not our fault our moms drank vodka during our pregnancies.

We also used that photo of a crowd that a reader sent to us, just to show how racially diverse we are, yo.


Smoke on Enter November

Probably the dumbest news title yet, but “Smoke On The Water,” “Enter Sandman” and “November Rain,” in that order, were voted as the top 3 songs of all time by Swedish radio listeners.

The ‘Top 666 Songs of All Time’ was compiled by Sweden’s Rockklassiker 106.7 station. That’s right, the entries were voted online, so you know the top is bogus since most people are dumb and have shitty tastes in music.
Fourth after GNR‘s classic is AC/DC‘s even more classic “Back In Black,” followed by Metallica‘s “Nothing Else Matters.”
Don’t get me wrong, I love all five of those songs, but are they really the top songs of all time? Not really, some of them are not even the bands’ best songs.

But hey, again, this was voted online, so let’s not give it more credit than we should. Full top after the jump.


Friday Top 26: Heavy Metal Alphabet

We’ve done so many Top 10’s already, but this time we’ve decided to top it all with a Top 26. 26? There was something with 26, right? You got it! The Latin alphabet, that is used in most countries on this planet, has 26 letters.

So what are we going to do with these 26 letters? Well, every band has a bandname, and every bandname consists of letters. Can you follow me so far? We’re going to list the best band for each letter of the Latin alphabet (including their best song and album).

Ain’t that cool, now? It sure is. Make the jump for 26 letters and 26 ear-shattering Metal bands!
