Nothing was going to stop Australian mom Samantha Williamson from rocking all night long at an AC/DC concert in Melbourne -- not even labor.

Williamson is such a fan of the iconic heavy-metal group that she refused to leave the Feb. 6 show at Etihad Stadium despite the fact that, well into her ninth month of pregnancy, she began having contractions in the middle of the performance when her impending bundle of joy apparently mistook the head-banging music for a lullabye.

But Williamson wasn't going to let anything stop her from rocking all night long with boyfriend Jason Mitchell.

"[The contractions] got really bad halfway through the show, during "Thunderstruck" and "Hells Bells," Mitchell tells the Sun. But this first-time mom rode the wave, refusing to leave the concert. She hung on until the last dance and then hopped in the car for a speedy 59-mile drive to her local hospital.
"Not even baby was going to stop me seeing AC/DC. I love them to death and I wasn't going to miss all their performance for anything," Williamson tells the Sun.

Baby Jack Angus -- named in honor of the AC/DC tune "The Jack" and guitarist Angus Young -- may have been eager to rock-and-roll with mom and the band, but he delayed his stage exit until 10:30 a.m. the next morning, nearly 35 hours after the couple arrived at the hospital.

Despite his late appearance, Williamson tells the Sun that she won't soon forget her new son's enthusiasm for her own favorite band. "We'll remember [guitarist] Angus going crazy on stage while baby Angus was putting in quite a performance off stage," she says.
