"Hard as a Rock" is a song and a single by AC/DC, a popular Hard rock band from Australia. This song appears as the very first track on their album, "Ballbreaker", released in 1995. The song also was performed live on two of AC/DC's live concert DVDs, "No Bull" (which an audio version is found on the Australian tour edition of "Stiff Upper Lip") and "Stiff Upper Lip Live". It also appears on the 2007 Plug Me In 3 Disc DVD. This song contains several sexual innuendos concerning erections: "Her hot potatoes, will elevate you","Her bad behavior will leave you standing proud".

Music video

The music video to this song was directed by David Mallet, and was set at the Bray Studios in Windsor, Berkshire. Lots of fans gathered to be a part of this video, and can be seen front of the stage, and also seen behind the bars which surrounds the stage the band plays on. Also, in the video, lead guitarist Angus Young is seen playing his Gibson SG on a wrecking ball, which destroys a building. Angus Young had stated in the documentry that he had a fear of heights when doing this before. Everybody accidentally forgot that Angus was left 80 feet in the air on a wrecking ball. The video can be seen on the DVD version of "No Bull" (which also includes the documentry on how the video was made) or the link shown below.
