Watch King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard Cover AC/DC In Tribute To Malcolm Young

Written by Zanda Wilson on November 21, 2017

King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard kicked off their own music festival Gizzfest over the weekend, and during one show played a special tribute to Malcolm Young.

The band performed their own version of AC/DC‘s 1977 release ‘Let There Be Rock’ and it was gloriously infused with King Gizzard’s wild abandon,  undoubtedly matching the energy of the original track.

Young, the co-founder and rhythm guitarist of Acca Dacca, passed away on Saturday. He had stopped touring with the band in 2014.

King Gizz join Foo Fighters, Guns N’ Roses and even Aussie kids entertainers The Wiggles honouring Mal with live AC/DC covers, while Rage is set to play AC/DC tunes in a long tribute this Friday night.

King Gizzard dropped their latest album Polygondwanaland last week for free.

Check out their shredworthy cover of ‘Let There Be Rock’ below.
