Great Video: “HILLBILLY THUNDERSTRUCK”…This Is How Rednecks Roll !!
A while back, I found this video on Facebook and then I did some digging to find-out more about it, what I found-out was simply amazing. The band is called “Steve’n’Seagulls” and they’re from Finland. Finland is a Northern European nation bordering Sweden and Russia.
Its capital, Helsinki, sits on a peninsula and coastal islands in the Baltic Sea. I guess you could say that being “Redneck” isn’t so much where you’re from….it’s a state of mind. This I will say, these boys really do this version of the ACDC hit justice. This YouTube video has OVER 45 Million views, pretty impressive for a bunch of rednecks playing music in a barn.
Here’s some info on the band courtesy of Wikipedia:
Steve ‘n’ Seagulls is a Finnish country-band, playing bluegrass versions of well-known hard rock and metal songs.
