Album Review

The title A Hillbilly Tribute to AC/DC is bound to inspire some laughs — after all, hillbilly music and the songs of Australia's most famous heavy metal band seem an unlikely combination. But when you think about it, the idea isn't so outrageous. Country was a major influence on early rock & rollers like Chuck Berry, Jerry Lee Lewis, Carl Perkins, and Elvis Presley, and it's impossible to listen to country radio without hearing artists who have been greatly influenced by Linda Ronstadt, Lynyrd Skynyrd, or the Eagles. Some of those artists probably have some AC/DC albums in their collection. That said, Hayseed Dixie's AC/DC tribute doesn't take itself too seriously — the whole thing is meant to be amusing, and the band's twangy, bluegrass-minded country-rock interpretations of AC/DC gems are delivered with a big dose of irony. Four of the ten songs are favorites from the Bon Scott era ("Dirty Deeds Done Dirt Cheap," "Highway to Hell," "T.N.T.," and "Big Balls"), while the other six were recorded after Brian Johnson replaced the late Scott as AC/DC's lead singer (including "Hell's Bells," "You Shook Me All Night Long," "Have a Drink on Me," and "Back in Black"). This album is exactly what it was meant to be: a goofy, entertaining, and very ironic novelty item.

Biography

Genre: Country

Years Active: '00s, '10s

Hayseed Dixie is a novelty band that issued a tribute album to heavy metal legends AC/DC in 2001 (completely reworking the Australian band's classics as country/hillbilly rave-ups), titled A Hillbilly Tribute to AC/DC. Their sense of humor is also evident in their bio, which claims that the band hails from Deer Lick Holler, "deep in the heart of the Appalachia," where its members grew up playing the traditional hillybilly music of their forefathers. But as fate would have it, they just so happened...
