So when looking at the surface of Dirty Deeds Done Dirt Cheap by AC/DC, it is about hiring criminal muscle to resolve your life issues. However, looking into the lyrics a bit more, I noticed several possible references to homosexuality and prostitution.

The song opens with
"If you're havin' trouble with the high school head
He's givin' you the blues
You want to graduate but not in 'is bed"
And this is an obvious allusion to the Principal of the song's target wanting to sleep with them. The singer then says that they are always home and all you need to do is call, which is common for criminals without day jobs, however the homosexual text grows stronger as the song moves forward.
After the first chorus, the second verse is as follows:

"You got problems in your life of love
You got a broken heart
He's double dealin' with your best friend
That's when the teardrops start, fella
Pick up the phone
I'm here alone
Or make a social call
Come right in
Forget about him
We'll have ourselves a ball "
This again references male relations, however in a more romantic context. The person being sung to seems to have a steady boyfriend who is cheating on him with his best friend. Now I know what you're thinking: "couldn't the theoretical recipient of this song be female", but that is debunked when the singer calls the potential recipient "fella", which as defined by Merriam Webster is slang for a man. The singer then encourages the recipient to either call or just come over to the singer's place, where they can "have a ball".

Finalizing these references to homosexual relations and prostitution, the third verse concerns a henpecked husband looking for an escape from his naggy wife.

If you got a lady and you want her gone
But you ain't got the guts
She keeps naggin' at you night and day
Enough to drive ya nuts
Pick up the phone
Leave her alone
It's time you made a stand
For a fee
I'm happy to be
Your back door man
In this final verse the singer says that he would be happy to be a "back door man", which is an obvious reference to anal sex, which we can corroborate by looking to Deep Purple's "Knocking At Your Back Door".

in short, I believe Dirty Deeds Done Dirt Cheap is not in fact a song about a violent criminal for hire but a gay prostitute, thanks for coming to my TED talk.

Aren't all the members of AC/DC straight men? Why would they write a song about a gay prostitute? AC/DC's drummer at the time of recording D4C was also charged with "attempting to procure a murder" in 2014, so he might know a thing or two about back door men, if you take my meaning.

Don't mind me. Just farming corn and gay hops.

It isn't explicitly about homosexuality, but it has inspired homosexuality in the form of JJBA part 7.

AC/DC is late 70's slang for bisexual

JFC ... at one time, "tossing salad" actually meant mixing vegetables. No homo.

I don't see how getting rid of nagging wife is misconstrued to turning into a homo either. Add to that they are Ausies, that lyrics could absolutely mean whatever.
