According to Gizmodo.com, AC/DC‘s music is part of an unnamed drone operation and will serve as a sort of testing mechanism for the drone while it is in flight. The song “Highway To Hell”, which was chosen by one of the drone’s developers, will travel on a laser beam that’s being bounced off a drone. The beam is reflected to a sensor located on the ground, and the music is reconstructed. A laser beam passes through a light modulator, adding digital zeroes and ones to the beam, at which point the light hits a mirror and is reflected back to its original spot while carrying the data.
Yoann Thueux of Innovation Works in Newport, U.K., who picked “Highway To Hell”, said about her selection: “It was on my iPod and I thought it would be a good song to go first because I know it completely by heart. I’d be the first to tell if the technology was not working properly on playback.”
Croatian cellists Luka Sulic and Stjepan Hauser, known as 2CELLOS are back with a new music video and a brand new album.
The music video for their first single is a powerful and intense rendition of AC/DC’s ‘Highway To Hell’ featuring guitar great Steve Vai. “Our fans love this song at our live shows and we really wanted to add it to the album,” says Stjepan. “It was very exciting to work with an amazing musician such as Steve and we really want to show the people that the cello can rock as hard as the guitar!” says Luka.
The new album, entitled IN2ITION (pronounced Intuition) is produced by the legendary Bob Ezrin (PINK FLOYD, ALICE COOPER, KISS), and is set for international release on January 14, 2013 through Sony Masterworks.

According to UnionLeader.com, a New Hampshire woman was arrested four times over a 26-hour period for blasting music — including AC/DC‘s classic song “Highway To Hell” at 1 a.m. — and for throwing a frying pan at her nephew.
Joyce Coffey, 53, got a warning from the police around 3 p.m. Tuesday after neighbors complained about her loud rock music. An hour later, police were called back to the residence for another noise complaint and Coffey was arrested on a charge of disorderly conduct when she wouldn’t turn down the music. The second arrest occurred at 9:20 p.m. Tuesday when police received yet another complaint from neighbors. The next noise complaint came in at 1:10 a.m. Wednesday when Officer Matt Blonigen said he could hear “Highway To Hell” as he pulled up in his cruiser. This time Coffey was arrested and charged with disorderly conduct and breach of bail conditions.
Police arrested Coffey for the fourth time after her nephew said he tried to remove some of his belongings from her house and she threw a frying pan at him, hitting him in the head.
