Angus: When we started, we didn't care about gettin on the radio and we didn't care what people said about us...We just went out and played rock music.
Angus: In those days girls were only interested in...well, not us.
Angus: We never thought of ourselves as a 'heavy metal band' we've always regarded ourselves as a rock band. The big difference we've always thought we had a lot more feel for rock, we always went out for songs, not riffs or heavy, heavy sounds. But every now and again it does come on like a sledge hammer.
Angus: The trouble is, we can't play everything or we'll be onstage all night... and we don't wanna end up like Pink Floyd, growing old onstage!
Angus: Style, I didn't think we had any! I just plug in and hit the thing really hard. That's my style...or lack of one!
Angus: Its just rock and roll. A lot of times we get criticized for it. A lot of music papers come out with: 'When are they going to stop playing these three chords?' If you believe you shouldn't play just three chords it's pretty silly on their part. To us, the simpler a song is, the better, 'cause it's more in line with what the person on the street is.
Angus: I don't like to play above or below people's heads. Basically, I just like to get up in front of a crowd and rip it up.
(When asked if he specifically named his guitar)
Angus: If it was happening, I'd call it Heavenly Beast. If it wasn't happening, I usually call it Asshole.
Angus: I love the music from Nat King Cole, BB King, Albert King... When I think of it, I wouldn't mind being renamed Angus King.
Angus: We want to appeal to everyone and get rich quick. We want to be millionaires. I've got this plan to buy Tasmania you see...
Angus: We're a rock group. We're noisy, rowdy, sensational, and weird.
Angus: I'm sick to death of people saying we've made eleven albums that sound exactly the same. In fact we've made twelve albums that sound exactly the same.
Angus Young: I try to find new ways of playing things and I've always had a thing where I don't put a guitar lick into something just for the sake of putting a guitar lick into something. I like everything to have a groove and go with the track and besides that, you do like it to shine out, too, so it doesn't come across as just being in there as filler.
