I think Teen Spirit has probably replaced Louie Louie as the most covered song.

 

This version is pretty neat.

Is that supposed to be a serious cover or a comedy act?

Probably a bit of both.  They are amazingly talented, but they like to have a bit of fun with their shows.   They do a lot of rock and roll covers but can be a bit tongue in cheek.  (It is hard to be a bad boy when you are playing heavy metal on a Ukulele.)  

 

Here is their unique take on "You Don't Bring Me Flowers" which is a comedy act, but is worth watching.  Think about how much work this one took to coordinate!

A pretty trippy version of REM's "The End of the World (as we know it)"...

This used to be one of my favorite Rod Stewart songs... until I found out it's actually a Cat Stevens song!  B)

How does one post You2be links here so that they're "live," not just clickable links? I haven't been able to figger that out yet.

Usually it works with YouTube links if you just copypaste them. However, if you're using a mobile device, remove the "m." from the "m.youtube.com" so it ostensibly appears as a video and not a link.
