Brilliant. As a classical musician, I heartily approve of crossover artists. I laughed my head off all through the video!

Alright! AC/DC's classic "Thunderstruck" to begin the weekend! For anyone wanting to compare with the original, here's an awesome video of the band rocking it from back in '91. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=V5iTQf5PDyY

Amazing! It interests me, how music evolves and how unlikely it would be for even a genius to have come up with something like this in the 18th century.
