The Pageantry of Rock

October 22, 2009

Hell's BellsFor a mere $200, AC/DC has packed

three CDs, two DVDs, one LP, a 164-page hardcover book and “memorabilia from the band’s earliest days of touring,” including a button, sticker, tour flier, track sheet, temporary tattoo, guitar pick, three lithographs, a poster and a replica of one of the fake $100 bills used to shower audiences during the ‘91 Moneytalks tour

into a working 1 watt amplifier.

I don’t like AC/DC, but that doesn’t prevent me from recognizing this as perhaps the gnarest box set in the history of rock music. Seriously; how fucking cool is that?

    It’s okay. Costs too much.
