It’s a long, long time since we’ve heard new music from AC/DC, but the YouTuber Funk Turkey (aka Kirt Connor, a musician and producer from Arkansas), has quite possibly scratched that itch with Great Balls.
Kirt used an AI bot (an artificial intelligence brain) to dig up all AC/DC’s lyrics, mash them up and write a song with them. Then he brilliantly put music to the words.
He has Malcolm and Angus nailed and if Brian Johnson ever loses that scream, Kirt Connor, you’re in there!
Kirt says, “Using lyrics.rip to scrape the Genius Lyrics Database, I made a Markov Chain write AC/DC lyrics. This is the end result- “Great Balls”. Thanks to the geniuses behind lyrics.rip – @thesephist and @jajoosam”
Kirt began playing instruments and singing at a young age. By his early teens, he was a talented multi-instrumentalist and performer, and showed other talents in acting and comedy. He spent most of his 20s as a musical performer, culminating in an appearance as a finalist at the 2005 Country Colgate Showdown as a backing musician. Not content to just be a musical artist, he began incorporating his keen comedic talent into his music.
He’s also made a bot write a Metallica song
