    Most if not all fans (hardcore or not) that I've ever met got into AC/DC due to Back In Black, and then go on to discover the greatness of Bon. So the post-Scott Dacca have certainly played an incredible role in bringing Bon to people's homes. Without them Bon's legacy would have been criminally under appreciated.

    As far as your post goes, I'd say most hardcore fans will at least listen to post-Scott AC/DC albums in a hope to find a hint of Bon's genius that may have rubbed off on the Young brothers. This exercise isn't always a waste of time either, case in point: Flick of the Switch. Apart from that its still a real treat watching then perform Bon's tunes on stage. I must say if there are hardcore fans that stopped being fans after Bon, well they're certainly missing out on a lot of fun, which after all is what Bon Scott and AC/DC have always been about.

    Anyway, they push so many more musical boundaries than Keane, seriously. Obviously most Decemberists fans are mainly interested in Colin's songwriting, and he is indeed a very good writer (again, much better than Keane, geez), but they're a talented bunch and do a lot of really interesting pieces of music aside from that. They might not quite stand alone, but it's not just a platform for the lyrics. Sort of like The Smiths, in that regard.
    They've gotten really catchy lately. Yankee Bayonet is the catchiest riff i've heard since The Boy with the Arab Strap came out.

    I'll be honest, I'm a big Brian Johnson fan. Reckon he does a ****ing good job, tough as it is to live up to Bon Scott.

    They have catchy tunes along those lines, certainly. The catchiest song on TCW was Summersong IMO.

    That's not the sum of their output though, there's also The Crane Wife 1 & 2 for example which is less of a hook and more of a musical journey.

    Brian's a great guy and all, does a fantastic job on stage, but you have to admit AC/DC's music really went down hill after Bon's death. As I've said before, Back In Black had quite a bit of Bon's ideas and lyrics, so that tells you something of his influence on the band.

    I'm not as knowledgeable about AC/DC as you are mate, so I'll have to take your word on this one.

    Might crank some now tho.

    Miles Davis is god IMO. It's incredible that he made some amazing songs in the 40s/50s, then managed to carry it to Amandla which was in the mid 1990s, just amazing. I'm not sure that anyone else has managed to carry the same quality of music over the same time period as him.

    Pfft, Cliff Richard. Cliff Richard might have carried the same quality of music through the same amount of time, but it wasn't anywhere near as good quality as Miles Davis's IMO.

    Ah yeah, of course. But the musical journeys were always there, Mariner's Revenge Song being the most obvious example. Whereas the catchy tunes are something they've done better than before on Crane Wife.

    Anyway, I'm very pleased to see that in a rare outbreak of common sense the god-like Elbow have been awarded this year's Mercury Music Prize for best album (from The Guardian).

    Congrats to Guy & the boys. Can't think of a band who deserves it more.
