    I saw in one of the threads that Brian hasn’t written anything for ACDC in a very long time. Does anyone know the real reason? I thought it may probably be to do with him having a lyric block or I did think that maybe he came up with some rubbish stuff like “here’s some ideas lads”
    1. Rock my car
    2. my car rocks
    3. My fast rock car
    4. For cars about to Rock
    5. Rock my car away

    I think you’ll prob get the gist that maybe the cars and driving were more his passion

    I remember In the liner Notes for the razors edge Brian who is busy with his divorce and had trouble either coming up with lyrics or focusing on the lyrics so the Young’s took over and I think it’s just been that way ever since

    The divorce reason was probably real, but after the TRE album sold so well without Brian's lyrics the Youngs probably decided they didn't need his lyrics anymore and would prefer to keep the royalties for themselves on all future releases. I think this is the most likely explanation.

    Like Spellbound said, Brian was showing no signs of slowing down when they axed his lyrics, and he has written lyrics outside of AC/DC since then which shows he can still do it.

    This paints the Young brothers as a pair of hungry pricks.

    Why would the already substantially wealthy Young brothers have held on to all songwriting duties, to their songs' detriment, just to make a relatively insignificant addition to their large fortunes? Maybe I'm underestimating those sweet, sweet Ballbreaker and Stiff Upper Lip windfalls, though.

    There didn't seem to be much reticence on the Youngs' part when they handed Brian a blank sheet of paper on the BiB sessions and said, 'See what you can do...'. Apparently they can live with sharing the royalties with Brian on their biggest-selling album, and a several albums after that, but they just decided to go all Gene Simmons with it in the 90s.

    All of the 80s albums after Back In Black sold poorly in comparison to it. They had a huge hit at the beginning of the 90s with TRE. I don't think it is a coincidence that this is when the lyric writing changed hands.

    So, why wouldn’t the Youngs keep pulling “ideas” from this “notebook” after Brian was dismissed from lyrical duties? Brian magically exhausted the thing right after BUYV? Even if this was the case, The Youngs would have just recycled “ideas” from it and milked if for more than it was worth. Post 1988 AC/DC lyrics are clearly a different beast from either Bon or Brian (or stolen Bon ideas)

    There was no notebook.

    "Out drivin' in a big truck"
    "Woman workin' so hot"
    "She rip off her stockin's when the place start rockin'"

    I wonder how much of TRE’s success had to do with them simply bringing in a big mainstream producer once again and going back to an epic/commercial sound instead of experimenting ala the previous 3 albums.

    I would say probably only a little, because Thunderstruck is definitely the primary player in the success. They key thing to think of here is how well a Thunderstruck with reverb-y guitars and dog shit vocal production would do...

    It's an interesting idea, but I do think that the main success of TRE was on TS's songwriting. You'd be hard pressed to find even the most dissociated music fan who doesn't at least recognize it.

    All of the 80s albums after Back In Black sold poorly in comparison to it. They had a huge hit at the beginning of the 90s with TRE. I don't think it is a coincidence that this is when the lyric writing changed hands.


    It is considered a bad thing by fans because it leads to the allegation that they prioritise brand over band, and that they'll even sacrifice artistic quality for some extra cash. It's true that it will also make them quite determined to succeed, but it also leads to this very black-and-white version of events where the Youngs take every opportunity to fuck Brian over.

    Secondly, the question is not so much how many albums will sell as how much they want whatever money comes from those sales. If the Youngs had been that concerned with royalties, they could have been writing all the lyrics from the start. In fact they were doing this during the Dave Evans days, but then delegated the responsibility to Bon. Bon was a highly talented wordsmith, so that was the right move.

    But I agree that the success of TRE was probably why the lyric-writing duties changed hands, I just differ on the reasoning behind it. Instead of the Youngs attempting to control the revenue stream on writing credits, I think they hit upon a formula that worked for everyone - they would go away and come back with an album more or less fully written. Less pressure on Brian and more certainty for the Youngs, knowing pretty much what the album would sound like before even going in to record.

    The lyrics on BUYV?

    Some of the best Brian has ever penned.

    The lyrics on BUYV may be better from a philosophical or lyrical point of view compared to TRE, but AC/DC's mass following doesn't analyze lyrics. For them it's the songs that matter, and Thunderstruck got them hooked. Still, song titles were good, as for Thunderstruck, and even if we don't know what Thunderstruck is about, some of them lyrics are powerful combined with the gargantuan riffs of the song. They liked Thunderstruck better than Heatseeker and TRE helped to reestablish the band as rock giants. BUYV didn't increase AC/DC's fan base in any wider sense, but TRE gave the band a new generation of devotees. TRE has more hooks than BUYV and also has Fire Your Guns that is a beast of a song. Looking back I don't think Angus and Malcolm thought that it was the best of ideas to not get assistance with production duties, as was done with BUYV and FOTS. The latter recording also has some serious dips with regard to the quality of the lyrics, if you want to analyze poetry.

    TRE had that polished sound and bigger production, which worked well for mass-audience / TV / video viewers. Thunderstruck was full of catchy elements and was brilliant for a comeback, in-your-face single. It really grabbed people's attention and gave a feeling of AC/DC being 'back'. The lyrics in Thunderstruck are weird and mostly meaningless, but somehow it all came together with a bit of feeling to it, whereas many other songs in that era onwards lacked any atmosphere or story whatsoever.

    I think even casual fans do note the quality of lyrics. Everyone loves to sing along with YSMANL, but you'd feel a dick singing along to Rock Your Heart Out or something. They've written stacks of great music since 1990 where certain songs would have been elevated to higher levels with some good titles, lyrics and purpose.

    I believe the Youngs thought their simple, direct lyrics were a success, but I also agree with a previous comment that their new routine of writing everything in advance might have been at least partly why they did same going forward with the lyrics. This was a mistake though (IMO), as they could have easily treated those as draft lyrics and asked Brian to come up with some decent ones.

    Incredibly interesting discussion going on here. From an album standpoint, I feel that Video was the last one with true character and a distinct atmosphere to it. However, there's one exception that I'll get to in a second. In a way, Thunderstruck was both a blessing and a curse for the Youngs, in that it was highly successful and got them back in the public's eyes, but it also got them fully set on a formula of sorts. The exception I mentioned earlier would be Stiff Upper Lip, because there's no way they all thought that this slow, bluesy, rock n roll album would be as mainstream as TRE. To me, that means that it was the last album in which they truly wanted to make something that wasn't following the formula of their previous album/s. It has a very distinct sound to it, in both the warm production and stylistic songwriting. However, the lyrics still suffer from the same Y/Y brilliance, and the songwriting itself could be better in some places.

    Back to lyrics, though. Lyrics have never really mattered for ACDC in the long run, but having good ones is MUCH better than having shit ones. One reason Powerage is considered a masterpiece overall (aside from the fact that it is from a songwriting perspective) is that the lyrics actually are very clever and have genuine meaning.

    As much as I hate Simon Wright's drumming, I think I actually hate the lyrics on Video more.
    I'm gonna fire up the coal ... HAHAHAHA ... I don't need no life preserver .... HAHAHAHAHA ... the most NOT rock and roll lyrics ACDC has ever done, fucking awful.
    ... Ruff Stuff ?! LOL ... I like 'em big, And I like 'em small ..... nothing says rock and roll genius like unintentionally homoerotic lyrics ... campy and fucking horrible.
    This shit makes Rock the Blues Away look like Bob Dylan.
