AC/DC Set Back Czech-American Relations by Years


Czech Republic prime minister Mirek Topolánek has apologized for calling President Obama's stimulus plan "a road to hell" on Wednesday, but says it's not his fault: "AC/DC played here last week and their cult song ‘Highway to Hell’ might have led me in that very improvised speech to use the phrase ‘road to hell,'" he told a Czech newspaper, adding that Obama's economic policy is more like a fast machine that keeps its motor clean.
