AC/DC take a trip down memory lane with the new video for their latest single “Through The Mists Of Time” off the album Power Up.

The animated clip shows off an expansive AC/DC exhibit in a museum that’s chock-full of classic images and video from both the Bon Scott and Brian Johnson eras. The video comes to a close on the museum’s ceiling that’s adorned with a Sistine Chapel-style painting of Scott, Johnson, Malcolm Young, Angus Young, Cliff Williams, Phil Rudd and Stevie Young.

“Through The Mists Of Time” is certainly a poignant track, and it’s one that made Johnson emotional during its recording. He said in a February interview with WMMR's Pierre Robert, “The hairs on my arm were standing up. It was tears, you know. I wasn’t crying; there was just this water coming out of my eyes. It had nothing to do with me, because I could see Malcolm and all the fun times we had all those years ago. The happy times in the early ’80s and those tough times, when he got sick and back again, what we’d been through and what the band stood for…When I heard [the first take of] the song, producer Brendan O’Brien said, ‘Hey, man, you nailed it. That’s it.’ And I said, ‘Nah, nah, nah. I’ve got to do it one more time.’ He said, ‘You can’t better it.’ I said, ‘I don’t care. I just want to sing it again.'”
