They follow the AC/DC formula – no ballads, no bullshit, delivering anthems for the common man. Frontman Joel O’Keeffe is a mix of Bon Scott and Angus Young; you can just see his cheeky grin as he rips out another monstrous riff and declares, “It’s all for rock ’n’ roll!” Rock might no longer be cool – whatever that means – but Airbourne remain loud and proud. And thrilling. “I know what I got,” O’Keeffe declares in Get Back Up. “And you can’t take it away.”
