Confirmed: Sharks calm down when listening to AC/DC tunes

But Eyre Peninsula’s Matt Waller has added another tip to the ‘don’t get eaten’ handbook with his discovery that Great White’s are much less aggressive when listening to ACDC – particularly ‘You Shook Me All Night Long’.

“I was talking to a guy who had been diving in Guadeloupe and there were some divers there who just been playing music in the water,” Waller said.

“We got talking and they said yes there were some certain songs that worked and certain songs that didn’t in terms of an actual change in the behaviour of the sharks.

“I started going through my albums and ACDC was something that really hit the mark.
