seeing this tab makes me lose all faith in AC/DC not because this is a bad tab but that it's so easy and unimaginitive.

So what. It still works with the song. It adds power to it. It's not like it's just flat eighth notes, there are several accentuation techniques used throughout. Have you even HEARD the song?

You have no clue what you're talking about. Music isn't about playing a million notes a minute.

Agreed. Rock N Roll and the Blues-style music that rnr derives from is not about fancy bass rhythms. It's about laying groundwork for the lead guitar and gives the song an extra punch so that you feel the riffs and the notes.

Take a band like Iron Maiden for example. Many of their songs have very complex basslines, but no one listens to their songs and says "Wow the bass was really good".

If nothing else, look at Mark Evans and Cliff Williams. Call the riffs unimaginative if you want, but try and find another bassist with better timing and rhythm. You won't find one. The basslines may be easy to pick up and play, but they're masters at playing it the right way.
