We have finally taught robots to do something useful: play AC/DC covers

As we've discussed previously, the German heavy metal band (get it? GET IT?!) Compressorhead consists of four robots who perform blistering rock songs, including this recent live cover of AC/DC's hit "TNT." After all the advancements in robotics over the years, it's nice to see we're actually getting somewhere worthwhile. Now, when the robot apocalypse comes, at least we know it'll have an awesome soundtrack.

I think the Ace of Spades cover is better and more dynamic (I guess they fired the bassist? Or is this an earlier performance?). Either way, I think they need to build a robot singer and keyboardist and add this to the setlist.
