How many of us can’t forget the awesome guitar riff from the AC/DC track, “Back in Black” from the first Iron Man movie? It was in the trailer and everywhere in the film, so it’s no surprise that Paramount wants to go back to that familiar place. According to Nikki Finke, the upcoming sequel Iron Man 2 will also feature tunes from the Australian rock band, but in an even greater capacity.
Today Marvel Studios and Columbia Records announced that AC/DC will be releasing the album AC/DC: Iron Man 2 on Monday, April 19th. It will feature 15 classic songs from the group’s catalog, which will span from 1976 to as recent as 2008. The lead track off the album is titled “Shoot to Thrill,” and the video has just been released on the internet. It features footage from Iron Man 2 and shows the world that AC/DC still knows how to rock. Seriously, how old are these guys? They’ve still got “it.”
The complete tracklisting for the album is as follows:
- Shoot to Thrill
- Rock ‘N’ Roll Damnation
