iTunes spurning AC/DC star in Excel music video

AC/DC’s quite brilliant ‘Black Ice’ album may not be available online, and while the legendary band have offered a few treats for the digital generation this latest fan-based move is something else…

AC/DC feature in the world’s first music video created within an Excel spreadsheet, built using ASCII art. Bigging up the clip, the band’s ‘people’ said, “AC/DC smashes through the corporate firewall with real rock ‘n’ roll. Watch the video playing back as ASCII art in Microsoft Excel!”

You can see the clip after the break, mainly so we could include an image of the new album and note that relatively recent estimates suggest the band’s music’s been downloaded in excess of half a million times of the file-sharing networks…

The band don’t care, they’re still at number one and last week moved 271,000 copies in the US…

We’re off to listen to the album again now – we think it’s one of the best from the band for a long, long time – if you buy it, you won’t be disappointed…buy it here if you like…
