AC/DC become masters of their domain

Now featuring more Angus and less anus

Choosing a cloud hosting partner with confidence

After years of trying, Australian power rockers AC/DC have finally obtained acdc.com from a porn company that used the site to redirect many an unwitting fan to sites offering filthy photos of bondage, water sports and other types of kink.

With song titles including "Dirty Deeds Done Dirt Cheap," "Sin City" and "Touch Too Much," the band's lineup is hardly one to blush at a little skin. But as the years have passed - the band was formed in 1973, according to this bio from the All Music Guide - its fan base ironically comprises more and more teens.

"The young fans are so net savvy it's the first thing they do," label manager Sam Horsburgh told News.com.au. "The push to get it back came predominantly because they knew there were a lot of younger fans coming through."

"Feel free to visit us from work, school or, for long-time visitors to the site, from the usual privacy of your basement," a statement issued by band members said.

Domain name whois records for the site were most recently updated on October 4. The site change coincides with the release of Plug Me In, a five-disc DVD of live concert footage. ®
