In part three of AC/DC’s look back at the 40th anniversary of the release of Back In Black. During episode three, Brian Johnson details how the band wanted to pay homage to their late singer Bon Scott. But they didn’t want it to be something stereotypically sappy, and needed to do it their way, like only AC/DC can.

Brothers Angus and Malcolm Young continue to explain the magic in their playing, and how they came up with such a monumental song. Johnson goes on to discuss how he tried to factor in Bon’s luck throughout the years and how he factored that into his lyrics. He goes on to mention how it seemed to come as a surprise to the rest of the band that their late singer’s luck had finally run out.
