Oh y’all, this just made our day! Making the rounds this week is a video from YouTuber and musician Aaron “Attaboy” McAvoy, who did something a little unorthodox with his cover of AC/DC’s 1990 smash hit “Thunderstruck”; instead of trying to decide between doing household chores and jamming with his buddy Shawn Lake, Aaron combined the two and actually jammed in his laundry room, using the washing machine to replace the drum parts in “Thunderstruck” for a cover that’s both really, really good and really, really fun to watch.
Fun Fact: This song is often played during several games.
Featuring guitarist Shawn Lake on lead guitar, Aaron Attaboy McAvoy rocking vocals and rhythm guitar and their special guests “white trash washer rhythm section,” this laundry room jam sesh also features a very special guest appearance by Aaron’s “white trash dryer” to round things out. We’re not kidding when we said this video made our day; this version of “Thunderstruck” does a pretty damn good job of staying close to the original; who knew a washing machine could replicate Chris Slade’s driving drum rhythms so beautifully? Check it out in the video below – this video is way too much fun, and we’re sure you’ll love it as much as we did!
