This Cello Cover of “Thunderstruck” Rocks Way Harder Than We Expected

Everyone loves the AC/DC song “Thunderstruck.” (If you don’t, get off this site right now.) Between the tantalizingly long buildup, that devastating chord drop, the screaming/singing of Brian Johnson — each listen brings a fresh set of goosebumps.

Now the guys behind the viral cello duo 2CHELLOS have taken the song in a totally new direction. You’d think it’s impossible to cover such a hard rock song with cellos. You’d be wrong. These guys totally kill it from the start. And while most of the song is recognizable, they also throw a couple of flourishes into the mix. You have never heard AC/DC like this before. And you’re really going to like it.
