Finnish Band Gives AC/DC Hit an Incredible Bluegrass Makeover [Watch]

Subscribe to Taste of Country on

Australian hard rock band AC/DC have had millions of people cover their songs, but, we’re pretty sure their hit ‘Thunderstruck’ has never been done quite this.

Finnish bluegrass band Steve ‘N Seagulls give the song a hilarious and innovative spin in a video making its rounds on the web. The clip starts off with one of the band members flying in on a riding lawn mower wearing overalls with no shirt and a coon hat, and holding onto his accordion.

It just gets more obscure — and surprisingly creative — as it goes on.

As he joins the rest of his band (clad in overalls, suspenders and funky hats) on a porch, the band begins playing a bluegrass-flavored version of ‘Thunderstuck.’ The accordion, mandolin, banjo, upright bass, spoons and even a wrench are used to back the song. If you didn’t think a mandolin could rock out, just watch Steve ‘N Seagulls’ performance — it’s pretty epic.

The band has also done covers of other rock bands‘ hit songs, including Iron Maiden‘s ‘The Trooper‘ and Dio‘s ‘Holy Diver.’
