Infant Gets An Earful At Noisy AC/DC Concert

June 23, 2003

An official inquiry into child neglect has been opened against a German couple who took their nine-day-old baby with them to a concert by ear-blasting heavy metal rockers AC/DC, according to Independent Online.

Other fans at Sunday's (June 22) gig at the Hockenheim Formula One motor-racing ring in south-western Germany warned police after seeing the 41-year-old mother in the spectators' seats holding the baby.

The couple only agreed to leave after a doctor at the scene warned them of the danger of exposing the infant to such noise levels.

AC/DC's mammoth power-chord rock sound has made the group one of the world's longest-lasting — and noisiest — bands of their genre.
