  Runnin' Wild
Airbourne Runnin' Wild Review By DeathWish Blazing out of the Land Down Under, Australia, comes one Airbourne with a fury of unrivaled old school hard rock/metal sounds. They struck on their home country's music front in 2004 with their eight track EP entitled Ready to Rock, in just a short year they managed to land a record contract with none other then Capitol Records. It would appear this group of crazy, partying, pub-rock maniacs were destined for stardom having landed opening gigs with some of rock's legendary acts such as Motley Crue and The Rolling Stones. 2007 marked the year that Airbourne separated from Capitol Records and found their new home amongst one of the best metal labels Roadrunner Records, and launched their international debut Runnin' Wild. Since then they have been featured in video games such as Madden '08, NHL '08, Tony Hawk's Proving Ground, and not to mention their song Stand up For Rock and Roll was made the official song for WWE's pay-per-view event the Royal Rumble. After taking sometime to sit down and listen to Runnin' Wild I have to say it is about time the rock industry got a swift kick in the ass, with a reminder that old school, feel good, rock is still alive and well in this world. Runnin' Wild is the type of album that you load into your CD player after a hellacious week at work, to kick off a long night of bar hopping and debauchery. The album kicks off with Stand up For Rock N' Roll, which without a doubt has the intensity and grit to be a arena anthem right along AC/DC's Hell's Bells and even Ozzy's Crazy Train. As we slip into the next track, which happens to be the band's current hit single, Runnin' Wild all of you out there whom are old school metal fans will be thinking "damn this sounds kind of like Judas Priest's Livin' After Midnight". Titles of the tracks on this album are as creative as the musical content with such names as Too Much, Too Young, Too Fast, Girls in Black, and Cheap Wine & Cheaper Women, I mean they maybe slightly tongue in cheek but hey isn't that how we all fell in love with AC/DC (well aside from Angus's madman guitar work). Couple this with lyrics such as "Too Much, Too Young, Too Fast I'm gonna tear it up, so fill my glass", and one would think they have the formula set for a total drinking album, no ballads here folks. So if you are coming from a musical appreciation of beer chugging albums, with blatant messages of one night sexual experiences, your prayers have been answered, so go check it out and let your hair down for a bit.

A somewhat local radio station around where I live has been overplaying Too Much, Too Young, Too Fast for the past while, and I have to admit I rather liked the song in the beginning.

While I wouldn't say they were my favourite, I'm definitely looking forward to hearing more from them.

This band sucks!

This band is a bit of a joke, I don't take them seriously, it's like they are just pretending to be rockstars by coping outdated bands and trying to be cool.

These guys rule
March 25, 2008, 01:59:pm

I saw these guys live a couple weeks ago and they kicked SO MUCH ASS. They are not posers, theyre so for real. they cam from Australia and theyre doing an insane tour this month, playing almost every day across the US. Theyll be on tour with Slipkot this summer so catch em if you can, they had so much energy on stage it was unbelievable.

we need a new AC/DC, so who better then a band from Australia? I met these guys and they're wicked cool. I hope to see em again.

Def one of the best albums so far this year.
