Where did AC/DC get their name? [Aug. 20th, 2006|11:07 am]

[mood |soresore]
[music |The Llama Song]

A band member saw AC/DC on a sewing machine. It stood for 'Alternating Current / Direct Current'. The band didn't realize it was also slang for bi-sexual, which caused a few misunderstandings in their early days.

Every time someone mentions AC/DC and devil worship (as...someone in the comments did) i think of Richard Ramirez. He had lovely bone structure.

Oooo. So snagged! I'll be using it soon. :D

I think the guy who saw the AC/DC on the sewing machine was at his mom's or something. Ya know, when people used to make some of their clothing? ;)

Oooh! Sweetie, you're goooooood! Do you have anything else up that's of you singing? I'd like to hear more. That song kind of lends people to sing like Kristen, which is great, you did awesome, but I'd love to hear you singing a standard.
