Song Parody Fragments:

"Have a Drink on Me"
Better Lyrics:
Pop that tastes like candy

With a glass I'm pretty handy

I'm trying to walk a straight line

On ginger ale with some lime


I got involved in a fight

After drinking Pepsi Lite

My glass is getting shorter

On ice and soda water

So come on have a good time

And get jacked up outta your mind


Gonna drink some pop

Gonna drink a lot

(Note: This is the "teetotalers version" of "Have a Drink on Me". The rest of the lyrics remain the same. "Jacked up" means to be under the influence of caffeine, which lots of soft drinks have.)
Original Lyrics:
Whiskey gin and brandy

With a glass I'm pretty handy

I'm trying to walk a straight line

On sour mash and cheap wine


I'm dizzy drunk and fighting

On tequila white lightning

My glass is getting shorter

On whiskey ice and water

So come on have a good time

And get blinded outta your mind


Gonna drink you dry

Gonna get me high
Submitted by: mouselover
Better Lyrics:
Paisan, paisan,

Listen to your Mommy

Paisan, paisan,

Listen when your Mommy talks
Original Lyrics:
Come on! Come on!

Love me for the money

Come on! Come on!

Listen to the money talk
Submitted by: Jonathan S.
Better Lyrics:
First you're a Dammit,
and then you're a baa,
Sort of looks like you
don't know who you are.
Original Lyrics:
So lock up your daughter,
lock up your wife,
Lock up the back door
and run for your life.

Funniest Song Lyrics:

"You Shook Me All Night Long"
The Funny Lyrics:
...telling me no lies,
knocking me out with those American thighs.
Why They're Funny:
At least we know the woman is American. Given the rest of the song's lyrics I'm pretty sure I know what this line means but I think there are lots of ways you could interpret it. Either way I think it's kind of ridiculous and it makes me laugh whenever I hear it LOL.
Submitted by: Edward
"Big Balls"
The Funny Lyrics:
Some balls are held for charity
And some for fancy dress
But when they're held for pleasure
They're the ones that I like best
Why They're Funny:
This has to be one of the funniest songs I've ever heard. I haven't heard it in probably 20 years but I'll never forget the lyrics!

The title keeps getting repeated. Anyway, do you have to keep telling her that? Since this is AC/DC theres no need to say just what "it" is, is there?
Submitted by: Ballbreaker in Babylon
"Cover You In Oil"
The Repetitive Lyrics:
Wanna cover you in oil
Why They're Repetitive:
As though the idea of a fifty-year-old eunuch covering me in oil was bad enough, it's the sole line in the chorus! Over and over and over and over and over...

Nonsensical Song Lyrics:

Bad Grammar in Song Lyrics:

Songs That Are Banned:

"Dirty Deeds Done Dirt Cheap (Album)"
"Dirty Deeds..." was originally released in 1976, exclusively in Australia. This album was not released internationally until 1981, because in the words of one of the band members: "Somebody thought we were promoting the wrong things". "The wrong things" in this case being murder, underage sex and that sort of thing.
Submitted by: GlamRockNinjaLord
"Let Me Put Love Into You"
This song and the group's name made it half way to the top of the PMRC's notorious Filthy Fifteen list because it alledgedly had sexual content in it. The PMRC also assumed that the initials AC/DC stood for Anti-Christ/Devil's Children.

All I have to say to that is "WHAT?"?

Lighter Side of Serious Bands:

"Big Balls"

Submitted by: Alyssa

What A Band is Best Known For (aside from their music):

"Very oily video, too oily"
The song 'Cover You in Oil' has sexual connotations in the lyrics, like many AC/DC songs do. But while the video shows a number of sexy women, they are all working on motor vehicles and getting MOTOR oil, engine part grease and machine lubricants on their faces, in the hair, on their clothes, all over their bodies! Not very sexy, is it? While there is a very brief scene of the three ladies washing off in bathtubs, this isn't the kind of OIL you want to be 'covering' your lover in, is it? Yeeeccchhh.

"Driving Cats Bonkers!"
A university (maybe in London) has conducted research on cats by playing various types of music and then certain songs to see how they react emotionally, sleep wise, etc. They've discovered that there's ONE song that gets cats agitated, unable to sleep, feeling disturbed, on guard and incapable of relaxing. That song is the 1990 hit "Thunderstruck" by AC/DC.

"Phone Number Lawsuit"
36-24-36 is a woman's measurements. Some couple sued the band claiming that this number is their phone number. The lawsuit was filed when the AC/DC album "Dirty Deeds Done Dirt Cheap" was released in the U.S.A. in 1981. The bogus lawsuit was thrown out. A real situation occured the following year when Tommy Tutone scored a big hit with "867-5309 Jenny".
