    One of AC/DC's most popular songs, "Whole Lotta Rosie" has been included on each of the band's official live albums: three with Scott (If You Want Blood You've Got It, Live from the Atlantic Studios, Let There Be Rock: The Movie, the latter two released in 1997 as part of the Bonfire box set), and also three with Brian Johnson (released on Live, Live: 2 CD Collector's Edition, and also the tour edition of Stiff Upper Lip). The only other song that appears on all five of these releases is "The Jack". A live video of "Whole Lotta Rosie" is also featured on the DVD Family Jewels, from a 1978 performance on the BBC's TV concert series Rock Goes To College.

    Current live performances of "Whole Lotta Rosie" are accompanied by a giant, inflatable "Rosie" as seen on the Live at Donington video. In March 2005, Q magazine placed the live version from If You Want Blood... at number 16 in its list of the 100 Greatest Guitar Tracks.

    * After the death of Scott in 1980, Brian Johnson sang "Whole Lotta Rosie" in his audition as Scott's successor.

    * Angus the bull, the mascot of Aberdeen FC, runs out to the riff from "Whole Lotta Rosie".

    * A live cover version, performed by Guns N' Roses, can be found on their "Live from the Jungle" EP, a CD that was released in Japan but is currently discontinued.
