Who Will Open For AC/DC On Tour? The Answer

October 9, 2008 1:37 PM ET

AC/DC have chosen an opening band for their upcoming North American tour, hand-selecting North Ireland rockers the Answer. You may remember the Answer from David Fricke's column following their performance at this year's SXSW festival. The Answer released their debut album Rise in 2006. If an opening slot for AC/DC doesn't mean you've hit the big time, Guitar Hero: World Tour has also tapped the band's "Never Too Late" for its track list. The Answer will precede their AC/DC stint with their US live debut at a club show during NYC's CMJ music marathon.

“Road to Nowhere”

Talking Heads | 1985

A cappella harmonies give way to an a fuller arrangement blending pop and electro-disco on "Road to Nowhere," but the theme remains constant: We're on an eternal journey to an undefined destination. The song vaulted back into the news a quarter century after it was a hit when Gov. Charlie Crist used it in his unsuccessful 2010 campaign for the U.S. Senate in Florida. "It's this little ditty about how there's no order and no plan and no scheme to life and death and it doesn't mean anything, but it's all right," Byrne said with a chuckle.
