11 AC/DC Songs You Probably Didn’t Realise Are Actually About Sex

Aussie rock legends and lyrical sex machines AC/DC are bringing their monster Rock Or Bust tour to Australia this December, and you can bet your Stiff Upper Lip that we’re excited.

So excited in fact, that Music Feeds have teamed up with Corona to bring you the Summer 2015 Ultimate Music Fan Merch Pack competition, which could see you snag a shiny new vinyl album and some official merch from AC/DC, together with these eight other excellent acts who also happen to be touring Aus over the summer.

We’re so excited, that we’ve also chucked in an Audio Technica professional stereo turntable and two sets of headphones to sweeten the deal.

And we’re so excited, that we’ve gone and penned what will hopefully be an illuminating tribute to Acca Dacca’s knacka for writing big, anthemic rock songs about getting laid.


And look sure, there are some AC/DC tunes that we all know are about sinking the pink, like You Shook Me All Night Long, Let Me Put My Love Into You and, well, Sink The Pink.

But DID YOU KNOW that pretty much every other AC/DC song ever written is also about doing the dirty deed (including Dirty Deeds)?

Well here’s some proof, in the form of a list of tunes from the earth-conquering riff lords that will double your entendre and put the sexual inn-your-endo.

Honourable mentions must go to lesser-known tracks Big Balls, Deep In The Hole, Givin The Dog A Bone, Love At First Feel, Get It Hot, Go Down, Inject The Venom, Hard As A Rock, Send For The Man, Let’s Get It Up and Squealer, which are also thinly veiled metaphors about slapping squids.

You can check out our list of 11 AC/DC songs that you probably didn’t realise are actually about sex, below, or enter Music Feeds’ Summer 2015 Ultimate Music Fan Merch Pack competition right here.

Play Ball

The first single from the band’s brand spanker Rock Or Bust may present itself as a humble sporting anthem, perpetuated by its commercial tie-in with the most recent season of US Major League Baseball, but the force of double entendre is strong with Play Ball.

The lyrics, “I’m in the mood… Let’s play ball, shoot down the walls” are brought to life in a music video featuring plenty of bikini-clad ladies getting pelted in erogenous zones by out-of-control balls.

Yep, this one’s all about hitting a home run IF YOU KNOW WHAT I MEAN.


This monster rock anthem has featured so heavily in pop culture since its 1990 release – in everything from TV commercials, movies and video game soundtracks to terrifying real-world attacks by cyber hackers – that it’s easy to forget that Thunderstruck, rather than being about mother nature-sanctioned electrocution, is actually just a humble ode to the horizontal hokey pokey.

Observe: I was shaking at the knees. Could I come again please?

The Jack

The Jack is beloved as the song that most inspires fans at AC/DC live shows to get up and flash their bewbs, but when Bon Scott wrote the lyrics “She’s got The Jack”, he was not, as many mistakenly believe, referring to the well known suit of cards, or even to the brand of Tennessee Whiskey known to be quite popular among rock n’ rollers.

He was, in fact, referring to Gonorrhoea, the venereal disease, which was affectionately referred to as “The Jack” in 1970’s Aussie slang.

Dirty Deeds Done Dirt Cheap

Among the “dirty deeds” detailed by frontman Bon Scott in this 1976 musical list of discount criminal-for-hire services, male prostitution and surrogate anal sex figure as items 2 and 3 on the menu.

Whole Lotta Rosie

There’s no delicate way to put this. Whole Lotta Rosie is about a fat woman Bon Scott fucked backstage in the 1970’s.

Ain’t no fairy story / Ain’t no skin and bones / But you give it all you got / Weighin’ in at nineteen stone.

Stiff Upper Lip

A song about Brian Johnson’s throbbing erection.

“I warn you ladies I shoot from the hip / I was born with a stiff… stiff upper lip”


For those of you who don’t know, a heatseeker is a type of missile programmed to find a warm target and, uh, blow on impact.

And if that definition isn’t enough to convince you that this explosive track isn’t just a stealth euphemism for boom-boom, then just take a closer look at the lyrics:

“Get your head down and blow / You gotta keep that woman firing / You gotta keep that serpent clean / You gotta make her sound the siren /You gotta hear that lady scream”.

Touch Too Much

A musical tribute to bow-chicka-wow-wow at its most mind-blowing, complete with a troubling metaphor about cooked meat.

“She wanted it hard / Wanted it fast / She liked it done medium rare”

Live Wire

“Like a hot rod baby? Oh stick this in your fuse box”

In this scenario, the “hot rod” is Bon Scott’s dick, while the “fuse box” is the unspecified sexual orifice of your choosing.

The titular “Live Wire” is also Bon Scott’s dick, as is the “circuit” which the singer mentions later down the track, and cordially invites you to “soak”.


Beating Around The Bush

Unfolds the tale of a deceptive lass with something of an un-mowed pubic hedge, who breaks the singer’s heart by getting some sweet oral satisfaction off another fella.

Girls Got Rhythm

From its squeaky clean, radio-friendly title, you’d be forgiven for thinking this groovin’ tune from the Highway To Hell album is about a lady with some killer dance moves.

But the “rhythm” that our titular female protagonist possesses actually refers to her skills at riding the express train to Boner Town. Specifically, in the backseat of Bon Scott’s car.

“You know she moves like sin / And when she lets me in / It’s like liquid love / No doubt about it can’t live without it / The girl’s got rhythm”
