We recently learned the sad news that AC/DC co-founder Malcolm Young, who left the band earlier this year, is being treated for dementia. But that news came with a silver lining: There’s a new AC/DC album coming out. Rock Or Bust is the band’s first since their bafflingly successful 2008 effort Black Ice, and given that AC/DC didn’t turn maudlin after Bon Scott died, they aren’t going to get thoughtful now, with Young ailing. “Play Ball,” the first single from Rock Or Bust is a big and dumb and simplistic and awesome anthem. Given this band’s history, it’s almost miraculous that the song is not about testicles. A chunk of the song was already airing as part of the Major League Baseball playoff promotional push (go Orioles), but you can hear a radio rip of the whole thing below.

Rock Or Bust is out 12/2.
