Little kid surprises judges by singing AC/DC song “Highway To Hell” on The Voice Kids:
Highway To Hell
Highway to Hell” is is the opening track of AC/DC’s 1979 album Highway to Hell. It was initially released as a single in 1979.
The song was written by Angus Young, Malcolm Young and Bon Scott, with Angus Young credited for writing the guitar riff which became an instant classic. AC/DC had made several studio albums before. They were constantly promoting them via a grueling tour schedule, referred to by Angus Young as being on a highway to hell, hence the name.
The song is in the key of A Major. The title and lyrics reflect the arduous nature of touring constantly and life on the road.[The highway that inspired the title, Canning Highway, connects the Perth Kwinana freeway to its port Fremantle and was home to many of Bon Scott’s favourite pubs and hotels, including the Raffles Hotel.
“There were hundreds of riffs going down every day,” recalled Malcolm Young. “But this one, we thought, ‘That’s good.’ It just stuck out like a dog’s balls.”
