The band opened their set at Corona Capital Festival with the track, backed by a picture of Young, not long after learning that he’d passed away at age 64.
“We’re gonna play some rock ‘n’ roll for Malcolm Young tonight,” Grohl said before launching into the song.
They covered the song earlier in the year for BBC Radio 1’s Live Lounge but brought it out once again to pay tribute to Young following a heartfelt tribute Grohl posted earlier in the day.
In the post, Grohl recalled seeing AC/DC’s Let There Be Rock live concert movie.
“It changed my life,” he said.
“It was the first time I lost control to music. It was the first time I wanted to be in a band. I didn’t want to play my guitar anymore. I wanted to smash it.”
Other musicians including Ozzy Osbourne and KISS’ Paul Stanley have paid tribute to the rock pioneer too.

Thank you, Malcolm for the songs, and the feel, and the cool, and the years of losing control to your rock and roll. I will do just that tonight, for you. pic.twitter.com/dnwm1uRFqd
