That’s the Text I Wanna Rock ‘n’ Roll

ACDC is one of my favorite bands, at least some of his songs will remain in my mind forever. Did you know they have the second highest selling album in history “Back in Black”, behind the Thriller by Michael Jackson. And what can we say about Angus Young… you’re the best man!

For this image I took 156 ACDC lyrics from this site and counted the most used words. As usual the bigger the font is in the image the most it have been used.

The first words of the list: got (329), rock (237), come (235), get (219), gonna (213), want (169), go (155), roll (155), yeah (147), like (133), back (124), love (124), give (116), know (116), ain’t (115), man (114), way (110), make (104), said (95), baby (94), feel (94), take (92), oh (83), can (82), hot (80), night (79), ready (78), time (78), need (77), just (74), jack (72), wanna (70), high (69), one (68), around, (67), good (67), blood (66), dog (64), fire (64), shoot (64), hell (61), turn (61), balls (60), right (60), ’cause (59), live (58), play (58), shake (58), new (57), gun (56), never (56), stand (56), keep (55), look (55), well (55), eyes (54), big (53), woman (52), honey (50), blow (49), gotta (49), shot (48), tonight (46), house (45), blues (44), dirty (44), round (44), bad (42)…

The font used in the spread process is “Squealer” from the band logo. I found it in this web site.

I tried to transmit the electric rhythm of his songs by adding dynamic movement to the words. As a result the images are very abstract but I like most of my tryouts, that’s the reason why you can find more than one in this post.
