Steve ‘N’ Seagulls Take on AC/DC’s ‘Thunderstruck’

Subscribe to 97.9 WGRD on

The Steve ‘N’ Seagulls have been making a name for themselves on the web by covering some very popular rock and metal classics in a very unique bluegrass sort of way. The Finnish outfit’s latest clip to garner attention is their cover of AC/DC‘s ‘Thunderstruck.’

The video starts off innocently enough, with a guy driving his lawnmower into the barn, but once he shuts down and straps on his accordion, the rest of the band comes into vision and the song starts. Using their unique instrumentation, the band deconstructs ‘Thunderstruck’ primarily using a banjo, mandolin, accordion, an upright bass and the spoons as the primary instruments.

The group also breaks out some unique instrumentation, at one point clanging a wrench on an anvil for percussion. The song definitely maintains AC/DC’s hard-driving perspective, but does so at times with a bluegrass and even polka feel. It’s definitely a unique rendition of the track.

The Steve ‘N’ Seagulls have already garnered attention for their coves of Iron Maiden‘s ‘The Trooper‘ and Dio‘s ‘Holy Diver.’ Check out the latter performance by clicking the button below.
