Deep Cuts: C.O.D.

Off of AC/DC’s 1981 album “For Those About To Rock (We Salute You)” we have the song “C.O.D.” which begins with a bang as the enormous sounding chords of Angus and Malcolm Young ring out. Track number seven on the album (or track two on side two for vinyl fans), the song was initially released as the ‘B side for the radio single (promotional only) for the title track prior to the album release.

In an interview with UK magazine SOUNDS in 1981, Angus explains how he came up with the song “Most people think C.O.D. means cash on delivery. I was sitting around trying to come up with a better one, and I came up with Care of the devil. We’re not black magic Satanists or whatever you call it. I don’t drink blood. I may wear black underwear now and again, but that’s it”.
