Angus Young, co-founder and the guitarist of the rock act AC/DC, named the most regrettable song has been released by his band while speaking to Vulture and stated that it was the song that was written by Bon Scott, ‘Love Song.’
‘Love Song’ is in the band’s first internationally released studio album ‘High Voltage,’ which was released in 1976. The song was written by the band’s second lead vocalist Bon Scott, who was a member of the band from 1974 to 1980.
Speaking about the song, Angus Young said that it was very different from the band’s style and that he doesn’t even remember the song’s words. He also criticized the record label, who told them that they should release the track.
When the interviewer asked the question, Angus Young they did a love song called ‘Love Song,’ adding, “That was very different for us. I didn’t know if we were trying to parody love songs of the time, because Bon wrote the lyrics. I don’t even remember what the words are.
“I remember that song because the guy who worked for us at our record label told us that’s what was on the local radio at the time – very soft music. His thought we should release that song, because it’ll probably get some airplay. I remember thinking, ‘Who in their right mind would want this to go out?'”
He concluded, “We were very fortunate, though, because all of the radio stations who had seen us live knew this was not who we were. So these stations started to flip the record over and play the other song, which was a cover of a blues standard called ‘Baby, Please Don’t Go’. We actually scored a hit from the B-side. That was the one saving grace of the song.”
