FOR THOSE ABOUT TO ROCK (WE SALUTE YOU) is the eighth album by Australian hard rock band AC/DC, released in 1981. The album was a follow-up to their highly successful album BACK IN BLACK. Brian Johnson''s second album as AC/DC''s frontman, and as such helped the band to create a phenomenal commercial success, with both singles, "Let''s Get It Up" and the title track, charting on both sides of the Atlantic. FOR THOSE ABOUT TO ROCK (WE SALUTE YOU) has sold over 4 million copies in the U.S. It was AC/DC''s first and only No. 1 album in the U.S. until the release of BLACK ICE in October 2008. In their original 1981 review, Rolling Stone magazine declared it to be their best album. The album was the third and final produced for the band by Robert John "Mutt" Lange. The name of the album was inspired by a book Angus Young read, entitled FOR THOSE ABOUT TO DIE, WE SALUTE YOU, about Roman gladiators. The gladiators'' final words to the emperor were "Ave Caesar morituri te salutant" or, "Hail Caesar, we who are about to die, salute you."
After FOR THOSE ABOUT TO ROCK (WE SALUTE YOU) release, the band embarked on its first arena tour of North America (late 1981 through early 1982). For the title track, large cannons were placed on stage, set to go off in accordance with the song on the album. The title track''s popularity was such that in every live concert AC/DC has done thereafter, the song is performed as an encore and is always accompanied by firing cannons on stage.
On FOR THOSE ABOUT TO ROCK (WE SALUTE YOU) AC/DC managed to preserve their classic rattle intact, with "Night Of The Long Knives" and "Breaking The Rules" forging a familiar piece of metal.
