Posting a Diary Entry

Daily Kos welcomes blog articles from readers, known as diaries. The Intro section to a diary should be about three paragraphs long, and is required. The body section is optional, as is the poll, which can have 1 to 15 choices. Descriptive tags are also required to help others find your diary by subject; please don't use "cute" tags.

When you're ready, scroll down below the tags and click Save & Preview. You can edit your diary after it's published by clicking Edit Diary. Polls cannot be edited once they are published.

If this is your first time creating a Diary since the Ajax upgrade, before you enter any text below, please press Ctrl-F5 and then hold down the Shift Key and press your browser's Reload button to refresh its cache with the new script files.

ATTENTION: READ THE RULES.

  1. One diary daily maximum.
  2. Substantive diaries only. If you don't have at least three solid, original paragraphs, you should probably post a comment in an Open Thread.
  3. No repetitive diaries. Take a moment to ensure your topic hasn't been blogged (you can search for Stories and Diaries that already cover this topic), though fresh original analysis is always welcome.
  4. Use the "Body" textbox if your diary entry is longer than three paragraphs.
  5. Any images in your posts must be hosted by an approved image hosting service (one of: imageshack.us, photobucket.com, flickr.com, smugmug.com, allyoucanupload.com, picturetrail.com, mac.com, webshots.com, editgrid.com).
  6. Copying and pasting entire copyrighted works is prohibited. If you do quote something, keep it brief, always provide a link to the original source, and use the <blockquote> tags to clearly identify the quoted material. Violating this rule is grounds for immediate banning.
  7. Be civil. Do not "call out" other users by name in diary titles. Do not use profanity in diary titles. Don't write diaries whose main purpose is to deliberately inflame.

Please begin with an informative title:

Dirty Deeds Done Dirt Cheap


The start of Rolling Stone's bio of AC/DC:
C/DC 's rowdy image, giant riffs and macho lyrics about sex, drinking and  damnation have helped make them one of the top hard-rock bands in history. When  they first emerged from Australia in the Seventies, the primal simplicity of  their songs and riffs fell on deaf ears of more prog-attuned American rock fans;  in fact, they were initially marketed as a punk band. But that started to change  by decade's end. And thanks in large part to duck-walking, knickers-clad guitar  showman Angus Young, who became as famous for mooning audiences as for his  gritty blues-based lead guitar, the group has remained one of the world's most  dependable concert draws. AC/DC's albums consistently go platinum, despite never  having produced a Top Twenty single in the U.S. Read more
Here is one person's take on the top songs from the band.
