"Are You Ready" is a song by AC/DC. It is featured on the band's 1990 hit album The Razors Edge. A live version of the song recorded on the tour of the same name appeared on one of AC/DC's two live albums of 1992, Live: 2 CD Collector's Edition.
The music video to this song, directed by David Mallet, shows prisoners attending an AC/DC mini-concert at their prison. One prisoner is being dressed up to get ready for the band to play the song. Guards shave his head nearly bald, leaving hairs that make up AC/DC's logo, the one similar to the cover of the band's music video tape, Clipped.
The song was featured in the 2001 movie Rock Star.
The prison venue in the video game Guitar Hero III: Legends of Rock is nearly identical to the stage that the band appears on in the music video for "Are You Ready".
