According to Matt Wallace, great white sharks prefer AC/DC over other bands.

According to a Herald Sun article, great white sharks (Carcharodon carcharias) are fans of the Australian rock band AC/DC. At least, that’s what Adventure Bay Charter’s Matt Wallace told the Herald Sun.

Wallace takes cage divers out several times a week south of Port Lincoln, Australia to view great white sharks. He says that the sharks seem to prefer the “low frequency” music of AC/DC to other music. Wallace asked researchers about sound that would attract white sharks. He said he was told that the species responds best to frequencies below 200 Hertz.

Wallace used “trial and error” to come to his conclusion that AC/DC was the preferred band for the predatory fish.
