An Iranian nuclear scientist complained to a cybersecurity expert via email that the AC/DC song “Thunderstruck” was playing from computers at two of the country’s nuclear facilities.
According to the Times of Israel, computers at the Nantaz and Fordo facilities blasted the heavy metal song at full volume in the middle of the night last weekend. The virus that caused the song to play also shut down part of the network.
Probably worth noting and decoding the lyrics:
I was caught
In the middle of a railroad track (Thunder)
[Clearly a reference to the "diplomatic track" favored by Obama and the western nations, and the more aggressive track favored by Netanyahu and Charles Krauthammer.]
And I knew there was no turning back (Thunder)
[Last November, Senior Iranian lawmaker Kazzem Jalali said that there will be "no turning back" in Iran's "peaceful" nuclear pursuit. Clearly an AC/DC fan.]
My mind raced
And I thought what could I do (Thunder)
And I knew
There was no help, no help from you (Thunder)
[Either a shot at Obama, or a reference to a lyric from AC/DC's "Thunderstruck." Oh wait, this is AC/DC's "Thunderstuck," so clearly a shot at Obama.]
Sound of the drums
Beatin’ in my heart
The thunder of guns
Tore me apart
You’ve been – thunderstruck
[Uh-oh -- divest Iranian petroleum stock NOW.]
Went down the highway
Broke the limit, we hit the town
That town being Bushehr, Isfahan, Natanz, and a few others I could name.
