Big Balls: The first song I heard by AC/DC. 10 years old my best friend across the street said I had to hear this song from a band called AC/DC on his older brothers new record. I will never forget sneaking that record out and listening to it.

A song about underage girls, contract killers, a pair of large bouncy parties and even women’s rights are some of the fantastic things to look forward to with the Dirty Deeds album.

When first listening to the album one may notice that “T.N.T.” and “Dirty Deeds Done Dirt Cheap” have almost the exact same guitar rhythm. It’s not a bad thing, they simply knew they had a good thing going and wanted to continue with it. “Dirty Deeds” is all about cheap contract killers who like to find fun and new ways to kill their victims. Some of these include electrocution, strangling, and having the person wear a pair of concrete shoes as they go to sleep with the fish.

“Love at First Feel” deals with rock stars obsessions with underage girls and how the taboo is frequently overlooked. Another classic on the album is “Big Balls”. Everyone is familiar with this song that takes innuendos to a new level. “Ain’t no Fun( Waiting to be a Millionaire)” can be taken two ways. One may see it as a wanting for more money or a true intellect can delve deeper finding a greater meaning. The second way urges women to leave the housewife business and find an occupation that will make them happy as well as financially secure.

Finally, Dirty Deeds offers one of the most underrated rock songs of all time, “Problem Child”. This song is one of my all time favorites. It begins with a hard drum beat and Angus ripping out one of the greatest guitar rhythms ever.

I don't know why, but I didn't liked it from the first listenings, but now all I can say about this album is: One of the best classic rock'n roll albums. Favourite songs: ,,Dirty Deeds Done Dirt Cheap", ,,Rocker", ,,There's Gonna Be Some Rockin'", ,,Ride On"

9/10

if it was released in 1981 then it is out of order because Bon Scott sang that and Back in black Brian sang and back in black they say was released in idk 1979?

Dirty Deeds was released in North America in 1981. The album was originally released in 1976.

No, originaly it was released in 1976 as AC/DC's 3rd studio album, but in United States it was released only in 1981, but I think if it would been released in United States in 1976, it would be somewhere 2-3x Platinum, but now it is 6x Platinum and I think it's because it was released after Bon Scott's death and some critics in that year described it as the best along with ,,Highway to Hell" albums of Bon Scott's era, but AC/DC didn't respected this album so much at the time it was released...

this album was recorded and released in 1976! not in 1981!

it's just in USA where it was released in 1981!

dirty deeds album made to the usa before 1981 in 1977 in newark, CA. USA. I bought the dirty deeds album recorded in Australia in a little hole in the wall record store So the Dirty Deeds import had to make it to the usa just not very many of them because i'm looking at the album I never get tired of listening to old ACDC The Dirty Deeds releast in 1981 has love at first feel and rocker the Dirty Deeds i have has jailbreak and rock in peace the other songs are the same so the import had to of made it here

There's a story attached to this one. My brother and I bought "Dirty Deeds Done Dirt Cheap" at a local carnival and closed the door and listened to it. We loved it but we knew our parents wouldn't approve. That summer, my brother and I went away for a week but we mistakenly left this cassette out on the dresser. As fate would have it, my Mom went into our room to dust and clean it and found the cassette. Not knowing who AC/DC was, she played it. When "Big Balls" began, that was the end of our cassette tape for we found out that she had thrown it away.

Unfortunately I only like Dirty Deeds Done Dirt Cheap so my band will only play that.
