Also, Columbia Records will release the album “AC/DC: Iron Man 2” on Monday, April 19, 2010. “AC/DC: Iron Man 2” features 15 classic AC/DC songs selected from ten of the band’s studio albums, ranging from 1976 to 2008.

The debut video from “AC/DC: Iron Man 2” is the AC/DC’s classic album cut “Shoot To Thrill,” which was filmed live last month in Buenos Aires during the band’s highly acclaimed Black Ice World Tour.
