The song will be used as the official theme for WWE Survivor Series.


The music video, directed by David Mallet, premiered on AC/DC's YouTube channel on 26 October 2020.


On 1 October 2020, the band teased the new single in a 30-second video posted on Twitter, appearing to power up the amp with its iconic lightning bolt logo while playing the song, and noting PWR/UP, short for Power Up.

In 2018, members Brian Johnson, Phil Rudd, and Cliff Williams rejoined the band after the two-year hiatus. On 5 October 2020, the band shared another short clip composed of behind-the-scenes footage featuring brief appearances by all five members of the band.





Lyrics


I need a pick me up

A Rollin' Thunder truck

I need a shot of you

A tattooed lady wild

Like a mountain ride

I got a hunger, that's the loving truth


You got a long night coming

And a long night pumping

You got the right position

The heat of transmission


A shot in the dark

Make you feel alright

A shot in the dark

All through the whole night


A shot in the dark

Yeah, electric sparks

A shot in the dark

Beats a walk in the park, yeah


Blast it on the radio

Breaking on the TV show

Send it out on all the wires

And if I didn't know any better

Your mission is to party

'Til the broad daylight


You got a long night coming

And a long night going

You got the right position

The heat of transmission


A shot in the dark

Make you feel alright

A shot in the dark

All through the whole night


A shot in the dark

Yeah, еlectric sparks

A shot in the dark

Beats a walk in thе park, yeah


My mission is to hit ignition


A shot in the dark

Make you feel alright

A shot in the dark

All through the whole night


A shot in the dark

Yeah, electric sparks

A shot in the dark

Beats a walk in the park, yeah


A shot in the dark

Ooh, a shot in the dark

A shot in the dark

A shot in the dark


A shot in the dark

Make you feel alright

A shot in the dark

Beats a walk in the park, yeah
