Malcolm Turnbull Names Mentals Hit When Asked For Favourite AC/DC Song

Australian Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull credibility has long been shot with his refugee stance, his environmental views, his parties waste on the SSM survey and his botched NBN. Now its sunk even lower when he named a Mentals track when asked for his favourite AC/DC song.

Turnbull was at radio station Triple M Brisbane when asked to name his favourite AC/DC song following the death of Malcolm Young on the weekend. He struggled to come up with an AC/DC song despite prompting from the peanut gallery then he answered, “My favourite song from that era is the Mentals’ (Mental As Anything) If You Leave Me Can I Come To?”.

Turnbull’s ignorance about Australia’s biggest rock export days after the band’s only Australian resident has passed away is incredible. Malcolm Young lived just two electorates from Turnbull’s seat of Wentworth.

Malcolm Young lived for the past 36 years in Balmain in the electorate of Grayndler. The seat is held by Anthony Albanese.

Following the death of Malcolm on the weekend, Albo was quick to pay tribute. “Vale Ashfield Boys High School old boy, Malcolm Young, legendary rhythm guitarist and songwriter AC/DC’ he wrote in a tweet. Malcolm Turnbull made no mention of Young’s passing.

Anthony wasn’t shy is taking the piss out the Prime Minister today. “Maybe hat was worried we’d ask AC/DC questions in #qt so they cancelled democracy #farce,” he tweeted.
