"Riff Raff" as written by and Angus Mckinnon Young Malcolm Mitchell Young....
See it on television every day
Hear it on the radio
It ain't humid but it sure is hot
Down in Mexico
Boss man tryin' to tell me
Beginnin' of the end
Sayin' it'll bend me
Too late my friend
Riff raff
It's good for a laugh
Riff raff
Laugh yourself in half
Now I'm the kind of guy that keeps his big mouth shut
It don't bother me
Somebody kickin' me when I'm up
Leaves me in misery
I never shot nobody
Don't even carry a gun
I ain't doin' nothin' wrong
I'm just havin' fun
Riff raff
It's good for a laugh
Riff raff
Laugh yourself in half

    General CommentThe second verse is actually: Police man trying to tell me, Begining of the end, Saying it will bend me, to late my friend. No big deal

    General CommentOnly one person commented on it, that's sad. It has a great beat to it, and it's my favorite AC/DC of all time, i especiialy love the verse and chorus.

    General Commentit sounds to me that this song is about a guy who was in mexico during the summer and was accused of murder. he's telling the police officer i'm just having fun in mexico partyin' and that he didn't do anything wrong.

    hell yeah this song is awesome! especially live.

    My Opinionthis must be one of the best songs ever as far as wanting to pick up a guitar is concerned solos, etc. Angus soloing on this song really lets rip.

    General Commentthis song is really good. i quite enjoyed the video. the part where bon goes uh huh huh adds to the songs power. it seems that the song is generly just angus and Malcolm showing off their skills. but the feel of the song shows the true acdc spirit. powerage was a really good album. any true acdc fan should know all the songs on it.

    General CommentGreat song! Just saw Angus playing it with GnR on youtube, and it reminded me what a great song it is. So now that riff is stuck in my head, and (although I'm almost sixty years old) I'm wood-shedding like a teenager, trying to learn that lick!
