AC/DC has come a long way since the days of scaring our parents…

By Jon Smith:

There is a part of me that misses the days of people protesting outside of AC/DC or Black Sabbath shows. Projecting pears of hidden messages or spreading rumors of the evils of rock music. Somehow it reminds me of a happier world of rock music. There IS a group still frightened by the sounds of AC/DC, though it’s not a group of stuffy teachers or concerned parents.. It’s Buffalo. Yes, bison. The animal.

The Park Rangers inside of Yellowstone National Park, as well as the Gallatin County Sheriff’s Dept,  have said recently that they’ve begun using “Hells Bells” from AC/DC when the herds of Bison are reluctant to leave the highway.


“For those about to move, we saluuuuuute you!”

After posting on Facebook metalheads chimed in with other song choices, and even some other genres we suggested that might get the animals to scatter. Buffalo Soldier” for example. Though, I think that might be a bit mellow.
