AC/DC Unleashes Music Video for Hard-Rocking Chart Topper ‘Realize’

Song appears on the band's latest album, “Power Up”

January 15, 2021

AC/DC is doing everything it can to make sure 2021 gets off to a hard-rocking start.

The legendary musicians dropped a new music video on Wednesday for “Realize,” a chart-topping single off their November album “Power Up.”

Directed by Clemens Habicht and Josh Cheuse, the black-and-white clip shows the rockers performing the heavy tune on what appears to be the same soundstage. However, band members were reportedly filmed in separate locations as they social distanced and the footage was blended together after the fact.

Written by guitarist Angus Young and his late brother Malcolm Young, “Realize” features vocals from AC/DC’s longtime singer Brian Johnson who returned to the band earlier this year along with drummer Phil Rudd and bassist Cliff Williams.

The heavy metal icons have joined the Stern Show on several occasions over the years and even appeared in Howard’s film “Private Parts.” In 2011, Brian memorably told Howard how he first auditioned for AC/DC right after recording a jingle for a vacuum commercial. Watch a clip from the interview (below).

AC/DC’s “Power Up” is available now.
