Great Forgotten Songs #132 – AC/DC “Dog Eat Dog”

“Dog Eat Dog” is one of the coolest AC/DC songs on their classic album Let There Be Rock, released in 1977, and was written by Angus Young, Malcolm Young, and Bon Scott.

“There was always a siege mentality about that band. But once we all found out that Atlantic had knocked us back the attitude was: ‘Fuck them! Who the fuck do they think they are?’ So from that point onwards it was: ‘Fuck, we’ll show them!’ We were seriously fucking pissed off about it. It didn’t need to be discussed. We were going to go in and make that album and shove it up their arse!”

“Dog eat dog”
Read the news
Someone win
Someone lose
Up’s above and down’s below
And limbo’s in between
Up you win, down you lose
It’s anybodys game
Hey, hey, hey
Every dog has his day
It’s a dog eat dog
Dog eat dog
And it’s a eye for eye
Tooth for…”
