Great Whites Love AC/DC (And So Do We)

By Joe Cermele

According to this story on Petethomasoutdoors.com, great white sharks love AC/DC. And not surprisingly, their favorite song is "If You Want Blood." No kidding. This all came about when Australian shark tour operator Matt Waller decided to try luring sharks to the boat with sound instead of chum. Though Waller experimented with tunes from many rock bands and hip-hop acts using subsurface speakers, the whites seem to enjoy Angus Young and the boys best. But great whites are not the only ones that love some AC/DC.

Call me cheesy, but I've been known to blast a little "TNT" or "Thunderstruck" through my boat's stereo on the way out of the harbor at 5 a.m. Though I guess after reading this article about Waller, I should be blaring it on the shark grounds instead.

F&S's Dave Maccar is a big fan, citing "Highway To Hell" as his favorite jam. FlyTalk blogger Kirk Deeter digs AC/DC, too. I clearly remember Kirk and I driving through Maine together, and all conversation ceased when "It's A Long Way To The Top If You Want To Rock N' Roll" (below) popped on the radio. Volume up. Sing-along commenced. I know you're picturing it.

I love all kinds of music, but is there a better band to get you revved up for a day on the water than AC/DC? I say no. At 4 a.m., "Let There Be Rock" is more powerful than a hot cup of coffee. What do you say? Even if you disagree, turn your computer speakers up, click the video or the links in this post and blast out your office. C'mon...it's Friday. You can fish tomorrow and this will get you pumped.

I like ac/dc.....but I may not be old enough to really dig it as much as the next guy. Music to get you pumped....try some Limp Bizkit.

Tough to beat. Metallica's "Of Wolf and Man" is a great one to get you pumped to go hunting.

It's tough to beat AC/DC for raw cranking rock n roll. "Back in Black" has a permanent slot in my CD player.
Not to many sharks in MN, wonder if it works on Northern or Muskie? Pretty much the same attitude as sharks, if they got bigger swimming at the cabin would be pretty interesting.

AC/DC is the best. There is nothing better to get you pumped for a day of literally anything fun. I prefer the dirtier side of AC/DC. You'll hear alot of "Dirty Deeds
Done Dirt Cheap" from my car, with "Big Balls" a close second.
