Music video by AC/DC performing Thunderstruck. (C) 1991 J. Albert & Son (Pty.) Ltd.
"Thunderstruck" is the first song on the 1990 AC/DC album The Razors Edge.
The song peaked at No. 5 on U.S. the Billboard Hot Mainstream Rock Tracks. It was released as a single in Germany, Australia, and Japan.
Angus Young stated in the liner notes of the 2003 re-release of The Razors Edge:
"It started off from a little trick I had on guitar. I played it to Mal and he said 'Oh, I've got a good rhythm idea that will sit well in the back.' We built the song up from that. We fiddled about with it for a few months before everything fell into place. Lyrically, it was really just a case of finding a good title ... We came up with this thunder thing and it seemed to have a good ring to it. AC/DC=Power. That's the basic idea."
