Music Video of the Day: Rock and Roll Ain’t Noise Pollution (1980, directed by Eric Dionysius and Eric Mistler)


“We were in London at the time and there were all those problems with the old Marquee Club because it was in a built-up area and there was this whole thing about noise pollution in the news, the environmental health thing that you couldn’t have your stereo up loud after 11 at night, it all came from that.”

— Malcolm Young

Angus and Malcolm Young reportedly wrote this song in just 15 minutes, after they were asked to come up with one more track for the Back in Black album.  Rock and Roll Ain’t Noise Pollution became the 10th and final track on Back in Black.  It was also the fourth and final single to be released from the album.  The song reached number 15 on the UK charts, the highest of any of the singles that were released off of Back in Black.

As was always the case with AC/DC, the music video for Rock And Roll Ain’t Noise Pollution is simple and to the point.  AC/DC was never a band that needed gimmicks to make itself heard.

Enjoy!
