AC/DC - Burnin' Alive Lyrics




(Oooh yeah)
Burnin' alive, set my soul on fire
Runnin' with a gun, this place is gonna burn
No firewater, or novacaine
No thunderstorm, no john wayne
No kids to rock, nowhere to run
So watch out 'cause this place is gonna burn

Burnin' alive, burnin' alive
Burnin' alive, burnin' alive
(burnin' alive, burnin' alive)

They be smokin' your hide, come runnin' wild
Tell you nothin' to fear, cause the buck stops here!
He came from a little town called hope
And someday, maybe, it'll go up in smoke

(I say)
No firewater, or novacaine,
No thunderstorm, and no john wayne
No kids to rock, nowhere to run
So watch out, cause this place is gonna burn

Burnin' alive, burnin' alive
Burnin' alive, burnin' alive
It's an all out war, an all out war
Burnin' alive, burnin' alive

Somewhere, there's a little town called hope
And someday, maybe baby, he'll inhale that smoke!

(yeah, we're) burnin' alive, burnin' alive
(burnin' alive, burnin' alive
Burnin' alive, burnin' alive
Burnin' alive, burnin' alive)
It's an all out war, an all out war
Hear the battle roar, it's an all out war
(yeah we're) burnin' alive, burnin' alive
(burnin' alive, burnin' alive)

(yeah) watch the place burn down

  2. Robert Stanford

    I love this song mike Stanford jr no John Wayne

  3. Robert Stanford

    It rocks

  4. Robert Lynch

    The subtle stroke of Malcolm Young.

  5. Terence Jones

    Much as I think this song is the best on the album I have to say the rest of the song doesn't quite live up to the intro.

    If it did, I think this would be one of the best rock songs of the 90's, top 10 EASY.

    Why is this so underrated?

    tnightwolf

    Because they've been making music since the 70's and have many other "better songs". Tbh this is a great song by itself, but they've done so many other great, "better" or at least similar songs over the years, that this one just kinda "lacks in comparison". Don't get me wrong this is still a great song, and it is still good old-fashion fun rock n' roll, but after so many years of so many historical hit-songs and cult-hits, the expectations just get too high, for any band imo. But this definitely one of the songs i'll always remember from one of my all-time favorite bands.

    John H

    @tnightwolf because you cant beat acdc with bon scott

  24. tuuuKA

    HELL YEAHHHHHHHHHHHHH

  25. Robert Cubinelli

    Turn it UP !!! Let yer hair down and rock till you drop !

  26. Rock y Cine

    The favorite song of Mad Max! Burning Alive!! 🌍💣🎸

  27. Michael Seymour

    brian johnson sounds awful .....i once considered him -and still do the most powerful rock singer ever...but he has just does not sound the same anymore ....blown out his vox

    TheTadziofan

    His voice sounds as if it's ripped to shreds, I agree. Most singers lift their head while singing, like Bon. But Brian uses only his throat, not the diaphragm when he sings. His chins is always tucked in. I tried it at home, LOL, and it was a very painful experience.

  28. Andrew Atnip

    I love that intro! Definitely the best song in the album and one of my favorites made by them!🤘

  29. tiago lago

    Come back Phill

  30. paul frehley

    EPIC song

  31. sergio santacecilia

    Burnin' Alive la mia preferita

    jimmy

    bellissima

  32. SuperMad5000

    Underrated tune!🤘🏽⚡️

  33. john Doe

    9.8k views I don't understand

    Michael-john Brown

    Its AC/DC one of the best rock bands ever whats the mystery on why it has alot of view only shame is it needs more view maybe in the millions or billions i would say decillion views but there will never be enough people on earth to view this unless life on other planets love this band to

  34. Brandon Bledsoe

    Frig yah

  35. Ram Roshan

    This song should have played at the background when Dany burned king's landing with her dragon...

    Andrew Varney

    I second that.

  36. Xutish Man

    Thanks for uploading..

  37. Will Banks

    Best song off ball breaker hands down

    John H

    yes it is

    e mb

    Why do you talk about which is the more beautiful??? For me pants down, that's my killer pearl fav

  38. Sidartha Gaur

    One of the most underrated tracks by AC/DC. The opening riff is etched in my heart forever. Brings back some vivid college memories. They are one of greatest Rock & Roll bands that ever walked the face of mother earth. AC/DC forever !!!!!

  39. Rayvin

    I always thought this song was alot different compared to other acdc songs, it sounds good

  40. Cavernícola Sofísticado

    AC/DC forever !!!!!

  41. Stormer 757

    im always burnin alive without my cold sprite cranberry

    Stormer 757

    @Dillon Krix i agree do you know how long it took me to come up with these cringy sprite cranberry comments it was so annoying

    Dillon Krix

    @Stormer 757 you know, now that you say that, I'm really sorry I ever said anything. I don't like to criticize hard effort. Forgive me.

    Stormer 757

    @Dillon Krix no its ok dont be sorry i laughed good when i saw your comment dont worry about it

    Dillon Krix

    @Stormer 757 lol I know dude. It's all good.

    Teddy Sheppard

    I couldn't tell if you were just trolling, or if you were serious about your cranberry sprite addiction and it somehow had something to do with AC/DC. Now I do

  42. Mr. Bubz

    Most underrated song on this underrated album...

    Andrew Atnip

    Said the same thing for Badlam in Belgium comment section

    Karsten Brunner

    Powerage 1978 is ''THE ALBUM' not Ballbreaker !!!

    Axel Bartmoss

    Ballbreaker 1996 is "THE ALBUM" not Powerage !!! Haha so ridiculous. Say Powerage is your favorite album instead. Claiming one album being the absolute best is like insulting anyone who dares to disagree. I prefer Ballbreaker (since I'm born in 1980, it is more my teenage than 1978 where I didn't exist at all). But I can totally understand it isn't true for others. In my country, it is said that tastes and colors aren't to be discussed. It means nobody's tastes are meant to be a universal reference.

    Karsten Brunner

    @Axel Bartmoss .powerage .....best acdc Album ever 😉😉😉

    Trevor Grynol

    74 JAIL BREAK.
    THE BEST EVER

  43. Buddy Sherart1
