AFL Announces Its A Long Way To The Top For 2012 Season
Late last week the Australian Football League has announced that AC/DC's "It's A Long Way To The Top (If You Wanna Rock 'N Roll)" will be featured in the leagues 2012 advertising campaign.
According to the official AFL website, "It's only fitting that Australia's greatest game has adopted the world famous rock anthem It's a long way to the top from Australia's most successful rock band of all time."
"It's a great tribute to the late Bon Scott and a fantastic coup for the AFL to get such acknowledgement as this is the first time the band have linked themselves with an Australian sport."
AFL fans can expect to hear AC/DC's anthem played before matches during the 2012 season.

AC/DC!

Molly Meldrum bankrolled 'LWTTT' film as part of the ABC's "Countdown". The film production of AC/DC on a flat bed truck driving down Swanston Street accompanied by The Melbourne Pipe Band cost $400! It became a legendary piece of film that scorched itself into Australian history. It's so fitting that AC/DC's brilliant grunting amplified music should be part of our national football code. To this day, fans cross Swanston Street to get to the MCG to watch AFL games. Please play pre-game entertainment at Grand Final 2012 and make the rumours true, it would be a great warm up for your 40th anniversary!
