"Anything Goes" is a song by the Australian hard rock group AC/DC. It is the fourth track from their album Black Ice. "Anything Goes" is one of five songs from the album that were played live on their Black Ice World Tour, however it was removed from the setlist on 25 October 2009 and was not played for the remainder of the tour. The single cover for Anything Goes is only the second AC/DC cover to feature frontman Brian Johnson alone (the 1986 re-release of "You Shook Me All Night Long" was the first); others have shown either the band or Angus Young.

The music video for "Anything Goes", which was released on Family Jewels Disc 3 as part of the 2009 box set Backtracks, was filmed live in Paris on 25 and 27 February by David Mallet.[1]

"Anything Goes" was a last-time addition to Black Ice, written as the album was being recorded.[2] The song's main riff bears a marked resemblance to the main riff of "The Shape of Things to Come" by The Headboys, which was a minor hit in 1979.[citation needed]
