AC/DC: Jailbreak Meaning
Song Released: 1976
And the judge's
Jury found him guilty
Gave him sixteen
years in jail.
He said "I ain't spending all my life
I ain't living alone
Ain't breaking no
rocks on the chain gang

Listen to the lyrics!!!! IT's about a guy who finds out that his girlfriend is cheating on him so he walks in on them and shoots the guy in the head. Then he is sentenced to 16 years in prison (Hell) he decides to escape but while running across the prison yard the guards shoot him in the back! Not exactly in sync with the order of the lyrics.

This has nothing to do with rape, it's about murder, breaking free, starting his life, and murdering again.

The only was to be truly free, is to be free of your life. Which is exactly what happens to the main character in this song.

It's about mark "chopper" reid
Alright. This is indeed an AC/DC song telling a story. A STORY! A FUCKING STORY! It has nothing to do with Bon's personal issues. The case is, there's a man in jail, we're not sure why he's there, maybe he's innocent.. who knows. He tries to escape, and fails. Guitar Solo.. The End.

are you people dumb? try thinking bigger. if you know acdc you will know that bon wasnt exactly happy with his lot in life. maybe this song is a cry of him wanting to escape everything in his life? just coz it speaks of rape and murder doesnt mean it doesnt have a deeper meaning
