2) This is why I am bored by AC/DC's music: It's more or less just 4 chords over and over and over -and simple power chords at that. In addition to that it's mind-numbingly simple drumming, non-existent bass playing, and in my opinion incredible overrated simple blues-based lead guitar. For someone who has several years of music theory classes behind them and a lot of knowledge of how the intricacies of music work, to listen to what AC/DC does can really just sound like child's play.
That's about the long and the short of it for me. And I'm not a n00b, I've heard several full-length AC/DC albums, I'm not just judging by the 3 or 4 most popular radio hits.
yet they make songs that people can remember...IMO a true sign of musical genius
