Brian Johnson took over as singer of AC/DC in 1980, following the sudden death of Bon Scott. Since then the rock legend has been entertaining fans the world over. But can you guess his favourite song in the world, which happens to be by The Beatles?
Appearing on Joe Walsh’s Old Fashioned Rock n’ Roll Radio Show, the host asked Johnson: “What’s your favourite song in the world?
The AC/DC legend replied: “Right off the top of me head, the thing that makes me smile every time I hear it is Get Back.
“And if you listen to Ringo’s drumming on there, it’s sensational.
“I remember somebody said to be, ‘Oh I could have wrote that’. And I said, ‘Well why didn’t you.’”
Get Back is the final song on The Beatles’ last studio album Let It Be.
The track was originally released as a single in April 1969, while the one on the 1970 record is a slightly different mix.
Next year, a new documentary film hits cinemas called The Beatles: Get Back.
The movie is directed by Peter Jackson and features mountains of unseen and restored footage from The Beatles Let It Be sessions.
During the interview, Johnson also expressed his hopes of returning to live AC/DC shows in 2021.
The 72-year-old said: “It would be lovely just to get out there, stand on that stage, and just give it everything you’ve got.
“It’s going to be the biggest roar you’ll ever hear in your life, when any band, anywhere in the world, stands up there.
“It’s going to be brilliant!”

The AC/DC singer also gave an update on his fellow bandmates and what they’ve been up to in lockdown.
On Angus Young, Johnson said: “Actually, it’s the craziest thing. His wife, Ella, she loves to cook. “And that’s what we were talking about — how to make scones.
“It had nothing to do with music. And Angus is safe and well.”
On the rest of AC/DC, he added: “And so is Phil [Rudd – AC/DC drummer]. Cliff [Williams – AC/DC bassist[ is up in the mountains of North Carolina…”
Johnson continued: “Cliff’s a huntin’ and shootin’ and fishin’ man.
“And I don’t know where Stevie [Young – AC/DC rhythm guitarist] is. He’s somewhere.”
AC/DC have a new album in the works with their classic line-up.
The late Malcolm Young will be included thanks to posthumous recordings in what will probably be the band’s final record.
