AC/DC – Who Made Who
[This collection of old and new songs acted as the soundtrack album to the Stephen King movie Maximum Overdrive]

A terrible movie. That's not what we're here to talk about, obviously. Oddly enough, we had invited Stephen King to a show on that run, I guess when we were going through Maine, and he actually faxed us back, thanking us so much for the invite but he was on the set of the movie Maximum Overdrive, based on his short story 'Trucks', in North Carolina, so he couldn't make it. I still have a copy of that fax somewhere.

This isn't even really a new AC/DC record. 'Who Made Who' was a new song but it's basically a compilation thing. Because it was AC/DC and it came out in 1986, I had to include it.
