    Default The Cello Cover of AC/DCs Thunderstruck That Youll Want to Watch Over & Over

    Full disclosure
    I have never played the cello nor have I ever taken cello lessons. This may not qualify me to give an opinion on this performance. However, I have seen cellos before and I'm quite sure that they are classified as musical instruments because the sign on the store said that they were. Anyway, take this with a grain of salt when I say, THIS IS AWESOME. - BB68



    The Cello Cover of AC/DC’s ‘Thunderstruck’ That You’ll Want to Watch Over & Over Again

    Get ready for a musical treat.

    The instrumental group “2CELLOS’ published a cover of AC/DC’s famous “Thunderstruck” earlier this week — and it’s gone mega-viral.

    Since uploading the music video to YouTube Feb. 18, the rendition has enjoyed over 1.6 million views and been met with rave reviews on the Internet.

    “I can’t stop rewatching this,” one individual commented.

    “This was the most beautiful thing I have ever seen,” wrote another. “Words cannot describe it further than that.”

    “This is amazing,” echoed yet another.

    Ok, that was awesome. They do a bunch of other songs as well.

    The other songs don't work as well. "Thunderstruck" works really well for two cellos. And they did a great job arranging it. Plus awesome production value on the video.

    Yep. DLR would have arranged it better, and Sam would have negotiated better rates for them.

    I've got a few songs by these guys...they're great. Truly awesome.

    Welcome to the Jungle is amazing by them.

    However, if you REALLY want a great cello group doing a cover, Apocalyptica For Whom the Bell Tolls...brilliant.

    Winners come and go; legends are forever.
