Watch New AC/DC Video for “Play Ball”
AC/DC has blown past the legal troubles of drummer Phil Rudd and given fans a greased up, sweaty woman filled video for “Play Ball,” the first single from their forthcoming album Rock or Bust (due December 2).
As you’ll see in the clip, there are nuns playing soccer, animals kicking balls, and scantily clad women diving in the mud to catch a football. Amidst all of this, you’ll find AC/DC, with only three fifths of its last album’s lineup intact.
Stevie Young makes his first video appearance for AC/DC, after taking over at rhythm guitar for dementia-stricken Malcolm Young. Rudd – who last week was arrested and subsequently cleared of attempting to procure a murder – is not in the video. Former Shogun drummer, Bob Richards, took his spot.
AC/DC claims that Rudd’s absence from the video is the result of a family emergency that kept him from making it out to the shoot…a similar excuse was given when he didn’t appear in a new promotional photo for the band.
Rudd still faces a handful of lesser charges, but AC/DC has declared that his legal issues will not interfere with the band’s plans moving forward.
Anyways, here’s AC/DC doing what they do best:
