"For Those About to Rock (We Salute You)" is a song by the Australian hard rock band AC/DC. The song was released onto AC/DC's album with the same name in 1981.
The cannons fired in the song are mixed with exploding fireworks. The video to this song was filmed live in Detroit in 1983. The song would later be released on AC/DC's first soundtrack album, Who Made Who, released five years later for the Stephen King film Maximum Overdrive.
The title and central lyric of the song are based on an ancient salute used by Roman gladiators, "We who are about to die, we salute you."
