New Zealand police say only that they charged Phill Rudd with attempting to procure murder. You may know AC/DC from their song "Dirty Deeds Done Dirt Cheap."

STEVE INSKEEP, HOST:

Good morning. I'm Steve Inskeep.

We do not know exactly what the drummer of AC/DC allegedly did. New Zealand police only say they charged Phil Rudd with attempting to procure murder. They charged a member of the group that played this song...

(SOUNDBITE OF SONG, "DIRTY DEEDS DONE DIRT CHEAP")

ACDC: (Singing) Dirty deeds done dirt cheap.

INSKEEP: ...A song about a murder for hire. Rudd is accused of forgetting the warning on songs like this - do not try this at home.

(SOUNDBITE OF SONG, "DIRTY DEEDS DONE DIRT CHEAP")

ACDC: (Singing) Dirty deeds done dirt cheap.

INSKEEP: It's MORNING EDITION.
