AC/DC drummer Phil Rudd's legal troubles appear to be giving the band a bit of a sales boost. 

Earlier this month Rudd was charged in a murder-for-hire plot, which fans have pointed out is the same crime at the center of the AC/DC hit "Dirty Deeds Done Dirt Cheap." And even though the charge was quickly dropped against Rudd, Billboard says the track saw an increase in digital downloads the week he was arrested. 

Sales of "Dirty Deeds" jumped 21% compared to the week before, marking the song's best sales frame since April. 

Phil Rudd is still facing charges of threatening to kill and drug possession.  He's expected back in court in New Zealand on November 27th.
