AC/DC fans boycott Walmart

According to The Pulse Of Radio, some AC/DC fans are apparently upset that the band's signature tune "Back In Black" is being used in Walmart commercials (see video below).

A number of fans commented on the matter online, with one saying, "Broke my fucking heart". Another fan wrote, "Shame on AC/DC for allowing Walmart to use their song. Shame."

AC/DC fans are known for their FM Radio Rock mentality (FMRRM), so these reactions should really come as no surprise. Their last album, (2008's) 'Black Ice', was a Walmart exclusive, so, they're basically tied contractually to the brand with the dog's asshole in the logo. What will you upset AC/DC fans do? Stop shopping at Walmart? Stop watching hollywood movies because there are AC/DC songs played in the background? Get a life and listen to somebody else's music for a change? Just as I thought, the answer to all is "no".

Robert McIndoe, 52, was unable to sleep for three months after seeing the band — made up of current and former members of LED ZEPPELIN,FOO FIGHTERS and QUEENS OF THE STONE AGE — in July 2010 at the Brixton Academy in London.

 His psychiatrist, Dr. Helen Stinson, said, "He accepted death as a side-effect of stopping the noise."

McIndoe's wife Shirley said, "When it first happened, he wasn't too bothered about it because he thought it would subside, and the friend he had been with also had ringing in his ears that day. But it was a constant irritation. He didn't get a night of sleep after that."

Tinnitus is characterized by a constant ringing in the ears, with the noise coming from inside the body rather than an outside source.
