AC/DC Fans Upset Signature Song Used In WALMART Commercials

According to The Pulse Of Radio, some AC/DC fans are apparently upset that the band's signature tune "Back In Black" is being used in Walmart commercials (see video below).

A number of fans commented on the matter online, with one saying, "Broke my fucking heart. I know their last album, (2008's) 'Black Ice', was a Walmart exclusive, but it's almost like Walmart has given the dog a bone." Another fan wrote, "Shame on AC/DC for allowing Walmart to use their song. Shame." But other fans were more forgiving, with one saying he would sign the same deal that the band presumably got for the song's use "so fast heads would spin."
