"Who Made Who" as written by and Malcolm Mitchell Young Brian Johnson....
The video game says "Play me"
Face it on a level but it takes you every time on a one on one
Feeling running down your spine
Nothing gonna save your one last dime cause it owns you
Through and through

The databank knows my number
Says I gotta pay cause I made the grade last year
Feel it when I turn the screw
Kicks you round the world, there ain't a thing that it can't do
Do to you

[Chorus]
Who made who, who made you?
Who made who, ain't nobody told you?
Who made who, who made you?
If you made them and they made you
Who picked up the bill, and who made who? (or who picked up the glue,)(?)

Who made who, who turned the screw?

Satellites send me picture
Get it in the eye,
take it to the world (take it to the wire)
spinning like a dynamo
Feel it going round and round
Running out of chips, you got no line in an 8-bit town
So don't look down, no

[Chorus]

Ain't nobody told you, who made who?

    General CommentPeople,

    Who Made Who was made for Stephen King's B-movie "Maximum Overdrive". The movie is about a week in which machines and automobiles gain independent thought and rebel against their human creators and users (particularly the big trucks which go after people). King was a big fan of AC/DC, so he decided to make the whole soundtrack AC/DC. Which is why if you get the Who Made Who album, there are some songs from a few years ago (like Hell's Bells).

    So obviously this song is about a machine rebellion against humans and the battle between the two.

    The best thing about this song was the music video. It had some robots bringing Angus Young "to life" ala Frankenstein, and the band performs in a big space on what looks like a spaceship/lab. A little cheesy, but very fun.

    General CommentLike the guy said, made for Maximum Overdrive. Look out for that soda machine that whacks a bunch of little leaguers by launching coke cans at them. Love the line in the movie from the terrified waitress "We made you!" ah but who made who? Ask Stephen King for meaning, ask AC/DC to ROCK!

    General CommentSounds sort of like a battle on technology to me. Who knows. If I knew Angus Young and the members of AC/DC, I'd ask them... But I don't... unfortunatley.

    General CommentMy favorite song of all time... Absolutely LOVE the video especially the part with all the Angus clones marching.

    This song is about technology vs. Man and the struggles they face...i guess fitting for the time which it was released in which i believe was 1986. "The video games said play me Face it on a level but it takes you every time on a one on one...." man this is such an awesome under-rated song. LOVE IT
