AC/DC’s ‘Thunderstruck’ Vs. Metallica’s ‘Ride the Lightning’ – Clash of the Titans
The forecast, quite ominously, calls for both AC/DC’s ‘Thunderstruck’ and Metallica’s ‘Ride the Lightning,’ the pairing of which promises a very rough night for any poor meteorologist — and a tough decision for rock fans. Which song will you choose?
‘Thunderstruck’ is known for both its relentless riff and a girder-shaking cry of THUNDER!, the combination of which gives this 1990 gem its cumulus energy. Meanwhile, the super-angry title track from Metallica’s 1984 release is all grinding menace, like an approximation of whirling around inside a storm cloud.
