AC/DC‘s Highway to Hell is becoming one of the most requested funeral tunes in Australia, reports the Daily Telegraph.

Leading the funeral chart is Frank Sinatra‘s classic, My Way followed by Louis Armstrong‘s version of Wonderful World.

Highway to Hell, which includes the line: “Going down, party time; My friends are gonna be there too”, is just outside the top ten, with Led Zeppelin‘s Stairway to Heaven.

AC/DC confirmed they have finished recording a new album with producer Brendan O’Brien and audio engineer Mike Fraser are currently mixing it for a late 2008 release.
