The debut video from "AC/DC: Iron Man 2" is the AC/DC's classic album cut "Shoot To Thrill," which was filmed live last month in Buenos Aires during the band's highly acclaimed Black Ice World Tour, the second highest grossing world tour of 2009 according to concert industry trade publication Pollstar.  The video also incorporates exclusive footage from "Iron Man 2" and debuts today worldwide. Check www.acdc.com and www.marvel.com for more information.  "Shoot To Thrill" was originally recorded for the band's 50-million selling album "Back In Black", one of the best selling albums of all time.

"Jon Favreau's vision and passion for AC/DC's music blend seamlessly into this incredible film" said Steve Barnett, co-chairman of Columbia Records.  "The music really underscores the high energy and excitement of the film."

"Music is an integral part of the Tony Stark and Iron Man experience, and we are pleased that Columbia and AC/DC are taking part in the franchise's phenomenon. Through this relationship, the band is delivering fans supercharged Iron Man-branded music through all our combined consumer touch points, from the movie to retail outlets and even virally with the debut of the new video," said Tim Connors, Chief Operating Officer, Marvel Studios.

Excellent, ACDC it's cool, but what happen with Ozzy's theme?. Marvel didn't negotiate so that ACDC could make a cover of Iron Man's theme?, they should do it, or maybe invite Ozzy for a special edition with ACDC?, What were Marvel's comments regardin' this matter?

So Iron Man 2 is going to be used as an AC/DC music video? I'm a little concerned that a few too many liberties are being taken with the Iron Man franchise. The new whiplash is a little strange but in a good way. I'm not too sure about the reasoning behind Tony Stark driving a race car. Seems like kind of a cheap thrill to me. Now adding only AC/DC music as a promotional trick is a little troubling. Part of what I liked about the last movie was that there was a very good score interspersed with various rock music. I think that hearing music from the same band repeated constantly will take attention away from the movie as opposed to enhancing it. Oh well. I'm just happy to see more Iron Man.

Why the heck do they do this?I think AC/DC is a great band, but there's nothing worse for a film than putting promo-music to it.Well, this might be a nice combination, so it's not too bad.At least it's a nice videoclip-slash-trailer kinda thing, but to create a collection-album for a film with the songs having nothing to do with it but a slightly fitting theme and sound is kinda nonsense.Why didn't they do something with Sabbath or today's Ozzy and the 'Iron Man'-song?...I guess it's because Jon Favreau likes AC/DC, but yeah...Maybe they should have done this one clip with AC/DC and also something with Ozzy... that's it, I'd say...
