    This is a pretty nice tribute to Malcolm by a german band called TXL. I don't know if this has already been posted (If so, then sorry:)
    As a tribute, it's mainly the lyrics that make it appealing; Just put on the subtitles, English translation is pretty accurate.

    (The title of this song roughly translates to "The best right hand of Rock'n'Roll)



    Even if you don't like the sound, gotta admit it's a sweet idea:)

    The heart is in the right place...however literally the most literal tribute ever, very German. Needs a hint of nuance and subtlety

    Hahaha, yes I totally agree, especially also musically. But as you said, I also feel the heart is in the right place:) And yes, it's very german ;)

    I just think it's nice some band dedicated a whole album to Malcolm. That's what I appreciate.

    It's like they took a post here and put it to music! Too fuckin' much (as a song; the sentiment is 100% correct).

    Fuckin' literal, square... um, square pegs. They're probably fun to drink with.

    They gotta warm up that sound too, btw. Way too harsh. At least on my laptop And the solo totally doesn't go for an Angus feel with too many notes and not enough sexy blues... But they mean well.

    ^I agree, but since those guys went through the effort of dedicating a whole album to Malcolm, I thought it would be appropriate to share it here.

    Man that is Teutonic.

    You guys are dead inside.

    German phrasing i’m sure is different from English phrasing so i’m not going to act like the translation is 100% how it’s meant to be taken.

    Can’t say i’d Listen to it again, but it rocked for the one time I put it on.

    Very nice, and heart definitely in the right place.

    But this is like if Alternative Nation read a post on here and made it into a song.

    In German ;)

    That’s fucking brilliant you miserable bastards.

    I love it when scientific fact is set to music.

    Also nice touch of Mal from the guitarist.

    Accurate description XD

    It's odd, because in German, it's not so much the lyrics that bother me, but I can see how terrible it would sound if performed in English XD

    Lyrically & Musically it's your typical generic german "biker rock". It all sounds like that, maybe that's why the lyrics didn't stand out to me, they're all usually like that in that "musical genre"(Very hit-you-over-the-head / teutonic, yes:)

    But it's more that "generic biker rock"-part that bothers me, which essentially means: "rather little class or subtlety" XD...but a heartfelt tribute anyway

    Funny bit: When they sing Malcolm it sounds very much like "Mal-kimm" to my ears XD

    They use the Bad Boy Boogie intermission riff. True fans.

    I heard "Mädchen" (which would translate as "girl" – for all those who don't understand German). :D

    The Best Right Hand in Rock N' Roll. Yes, these guys know what they are talking about. To have that perfect understanding of the phenomenon Malcolm Young means that they ought to be great lads. Very charming performance!
