Watch AC/DC’s ‘Play Ball’ Video

Subscribe to Ultimate Classic Rock on

After much teasing, AC/DC have unveiled the video for ‘Play Ball,’ the first single from their upcoming album, ‘Rock or Bust.’ You can view it above.

The clip shows the band in their traditional stage outfits — Angus Young in his schoolboy uniform, Brian Johnson in a flat cap — performing the song in between footage of various sporting events. This ranges from nuns playing soccer to trick-shot snooker to scantily clad women playing football, volleyball and sliding around in mud.

As has been frequently noted recently, two longtime members of AC/DC are missing from the video. Founding guitarist Malcolm Young has left the band due to dementia and has been replaced by his and Angus’ nephew, Stevie.

Drummer Phil Rudd also did not attend the video shoot. At the time, his absence was written off as a “family emergency,” and Rob Richards, formerly of Shogun, was behind the drum kit in the video. But Rudd has since been arrested and charged with threatening to have someone killed and possession of cannabis and methamphetamine. A fourth charge of trying to procure a murder was dropped. His status with AC/DC remains uncertain.

‘Rock or Bust’ will be released on Dec. 2.
