Frenzal Rhomb – Forever Malcolm Young lyrics

Never seem to be in front
Or part of the exciting times
Destined for a life of second best
The blackmail not the bribe
Together now whatever work has gone unsung
He'll be forever Malcolm Young
Always gnocchi not linguine
Never Hitler you're Mussolini
Often the sideshow but not the circus
Always Malcolm never Angus
End up Carlton you wanted to be Negus
Single pluggers never sneakers
Always headphones never the speakers
Shouldn't have a complex cause
He wrote Highway To fucking Hell
Together now whatever work has gone unsung
He'll be forever Malcolm Young
Don't be too cocky cause he wrote Stiff Upper Lip as well

    The song simply addresses the fact that Malcolm Young never gets proper acknowledgment for his contributions to music. Without Malcolm Young, AC/DC would not exist. However, his more visible brother is the only member of the group who is readily recognized.
    The song was also written as a goof on the band Youth Group, who performed the popular 2006 song "Forever Young". The members of the two bands are friends.
