It looks like AC/DC may have been playing a goof when the released the ultra-low budget video for "Play Ball" earlier this month, drawing the ire of fans around the Globe. The iconic rockers have just unleashed the proper video for "Rock or Bust," the title track from their forthcoming new album, and the video - like the song itself - is pure, vintage AC/DC. While I've got that embedded here on THE ROCK FATHER for your viewing pleasure, you can stream the entire album right now for free on iTunes First Play

125litaIt's been over 30 years since LITA FORD and CHERIE CURRIE last performed together as members of the iconic group, THE RUNAWAYS. In fact, the last time these two recorded new music together, the original STAR WARS was still in theaters - 1977. Fast-forward to 2013, and Ford thought that "the world could use a new Christmas song," and that song just so happened to become a duet with her old friend and former bandmate.
