This is a band i found out about the other day that is apparently a punk band and taking punk was a rebellion against what was normal at the time i suppose they are punk. smile.gif

Basically they do cover's of songs but in a style completely innapropriate to the original song, whilst in suits and bow ties playing ukeleles. laugh.gif

Wuthering Heights - The original by Kate Bush

Wuthering Heights - The Ukelele Orchestra

Teenage Kicks - Original By The Undertones

Teenage Kicks - The Uklele Orchestra

I don't know if you'll think they're funny like i do, but i think it's strangely amusing watching people in suits and bow ties playing tiny guitars, and playing songs in completely the wrong style. smile.gif
