Editors’ Notes The guns literally came out blazing for the tour that surrounded the band's chart-topping 1981 album. In fact, this album's title track would provide the bombastic close to most of their concerts in the years to follow. In a career not lacking in bold statements, "for those about to rock / we salute you" seemed like the boldest of all–the new rock gods honoring their flock. Brian Johnson's second album with the band also took the group further away from their blues-y roots and straight into the heart of hard rock. The streamlined, clean riffs of "I Put the Finger On You" and "Let's Get it Up" were template-setting arena rock numbers that showed off choruses that were more like soccer chants.
